2020 Spring Smooth Water BaozhongFloating Leaves Tea
This Smooth Water Baozhong is from the birthplace of Taiwanese Baozhong, Nangang. Around the turn of the 20th century, Baozhong was produced as a flower scented export tea to South Asia and Northern China. The Taiwan Tea Reform Institute challenged farmers to create a Baozhong with the floral scent that drinkers were looking for, but naturally without adding any scenting. The two farmers who successfully produced that flavor were both growing tea in Nangang. Now, Nangang tea farmers are very proud of their tradition of producing excellent Baozhong.
The scent as we smell the surface of the tea broth is soft, sweet and penetrating. Shiuwen described the note as marzipan. It's a very elegant tea. The broth is extremely soft and well balanced. The tea has a beautiful calm, quiet feeling about it that is a joy to experience. It's hard to put into words.
We sincerely recommend you try this tea to feel the beauty of a soft, smooth Baozhong. For some people it may be too quiet. If that's the case, you can go for Farmer's Choice or Competition Style Baozhong because they are both bolder teas, and very delightful. But if you give this Smooth Water Baozhong time and careful attention, you will not be disappointed when you are able to feel it's softness.
