Ten Ren's 3rd Grade Pi Lo Chun (Bi Luo Chun, Bi Lu Chun) produces a tea that has a light yellow-green hue. It has a strong fresh taste with a lasting fresh and pure aftertaste. The aroma is strong with a faint baked smell and the scent of freshly cut grass. This grade tends to uses tea leaves which are slightly older than the other grades.
The water used to steep this tea should be about 175-195°F or 80-90°C. Use about 1 tablespoon (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 ml) of water. A steeping time of about 2-3 minutes with more or less time is recommended depending on desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. To enjoy the tea leaves falling like snowflakes, fill a clear glass or ceramic cup with hot water and then add the Pi Lo Chun tea leaves.
