Sourcing tea for this blog is a bit of a challenge. Of everything I have to do, picking which teas to purchase and review takes up more thought than anything else. Once I identify a tea I want to review I have to look at the cost, see if anyone else has already reviewed it, place an order, and then wait hoping it gets here before some other blog places their stamp on it. Not that having more than one opinion is a bad thing, but I’m trying to build a niche for myself and if everyone is reviewing the same thing it can be hard to do.
When I first saw Yunnan Sourcing’s Imperial Pure Gold Bi Luo Chan I didn’t give it a second thought. Ideas for this series flew through my head on wings of inspiration and I knew I had to have it regardless if it tasted like piss water or not. Luckily the tea is as divine tasting as it is beautiful.
