2020 Spring Fragrant BaozhongFloating Leaves Tea
Baozhong was a big hit in our big anniversary sale in August. For the first time, we ran out of Mr Chen's Baozhongs more than three months before the Winter harvest! We were lucky enough to talk a friend who has a teashop in Taipei to sell us a little extra Fragrant Baozhong to tide us over until December.
This Fragrant Baozhong is somewhere in between the floral Competition Style and solid, rich Farmer's Choice. It does lean more towards Competition Style because of its bright fragrance.
Right out of the gate, the wet leaves present a balanced, sweet aroma with notes of flowers and young fruit. The broth is soft and well balanced with a fruit's sweetness. Flavors range from honeysuckle to pineapple to lightly blanched bokchoy.
This is an easygoing baozhong with wonderful floral notes, and we're lucky to have gotten some!
