pi luo chun = Pi Lo Chun, Bi Luo Chun, BiLuoChun , Xia Sha Ren Xiang, Tai Hu lu cha, Green Snail Spring, Green Snail Springtime, but hey! I’M NOT CONFUSED, maybe if i learn chinese writing it will be easier…. ill make my own translation.
about 2tsp ~160F water. ~3minutes, if astringency comes its probably over-steeped.
flavor 4/7: greenish + unknown fruit (maybe apricot).
flavor fades by the 3rd infusion, astringency dominating the subsequent infusions.
astringency produces a sweetish aftertaste.
1st infusion 194F 3min:~~~might not have been enough tea~~~
tea smell: medium.
aspect: green leaf in water looks ok, length <.75inch, more broken leafs.
flavor: 3.5/7 green vegetal… i have a sensation of fried but not very outspoken, astringency when present is ~ok ~green vegetal (pleasant to me, unlike black tea astringency.)
