Biluochun on a budget

In the realm of green tea, if those from India are too rough and astringent, or Japanese ones too seaweedy, maybe Chinese is the way to go. Tea Hong’s Silver Curls is a great value selection to start experiencing the category with. It has the characteristics of the archetypical Chinese green tea — soft, fragrant, slightly sweet and refreshing. In some teashops, the same quality can be labelled as Biluochun or some other expensive names.

    Nice balanced Chinese green tea

    Silver Curls Spring has an appearance of light green and silver curls. The description states that this is a more mellow green tea with a slightly sweet aftertaste. I think that description is accurate. In many ways this tea reminds me of some other green teas I have had, but a finer quality, and the appearance is nice. It shows the careful work put into making the tea. Like Tianshan April Mist, this is also a quite refreshing tea, but due to its balance and poise, rather than its strength and brightness. The aftertaste is a little soft and sweet. The taste is a little reminiscent of a softer and cooler Longjing. This strikes me as an excellent overall representative of a refined and classic Chinese green tea. On a personal note, it is also the type of tea that I would enjoy on a daily basis.

    Quite Nutty

    It has been said that some green teas take on a nutty flavour profile. This is one of them; when infused at 1g or 2g to 100ml, the resultant liquor takes it on. Peanuts, to be precise as to what it reminds me of.. This, however, may be a personal quirk. If taken on beyond 2g to 100ml, it quickly loses this quality and becomes more vegetial, though never grassy. In either case, this is a great tea for every-day use. A good amount at a good price: brew a bunch for your friends!
