Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Grand Tea
Grand Tea’s Supreme Grade Bi Lu Chun consist of 1-2 cm size buds. As expected from such top notch tea, the flavor is smooth, light and delicate. The distinct sweetness from the bud make it really stand out.
Due to the very high demand of high quality tea in China, such small quantity fine tea usually never leave China and reach the mass market. We are fortunate to have 20 kg of this very best Green tea. So don’t wait to long before order, I promise it won’t last very long.

There’s something just so … lovely about a top notch Bi Lu Chun like this Supreme Bi Lu Chun Green Tea from Grand Tea. The leaves are so beautiful, so tiny and tender and covered with soft, fuzzy down. They look, smell and feel so fresh.
The brewed liquid is very pale green and it has a delightfully delicate flavor. The sweetness is so profound … like a sugary sweetness! It has a smooth taste that is softly vegetal with hints of butter-like notes. There are layers of flavor to this as well, and I can pick up on whispers of fruit and floral notes, as well as a sweet, nutty tone in the distance. As I continue to sip, the nutty flavors come a little more into focus, but, these flavors are never strongly pronounced.
That’s because the overall cup is so beautifully delicate. This delicate quality doesn’t allow the flavors to come through strongly, instead, it beckons your palate to discover them. It’s a tea that you want to sit and consider rather than one that you want to rush through. This tea wants to take things slowly with you and allow you to discover the flavors and enjoy them as they’re revealed.
This Supreme Bi Lu Chun is truly an exceptional Chinese green – and it’s a tea that should be experienced by every tea drinker out there!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
