2018 Winter Competition Style BaozhongFloating Leaves Tea
Baozhong as we know it was born of a friendly competition between tea farmers. The winner was to create a oolong with a floral fragrance that had not been scented with any non-tea additives. The resulting Baozhong has become one of Taiwan's five most famous oolong teas. It is a floral and juicy open leaf style oolong with a brisk punch.
Our longtime friend and delightful tea farmer Mr Chen has been making this tea for us for more than a decade now. He grows the tea in his home in Pinglin, and does all the processing in house, start to finish. We love his personality and how it reflects in his easygoing tea!
This is a very refreshing tea, floral and fragrant. Farmer Chen chose this tea to send to competitions to be judged against a set of stringent rules because it hits the right notes. What that means is tea broth is clean, straightforward and bright with a balanced body. The color of the brewed cup is jade. It's scent floral. It's an exceptionally pretty tea. If you like crisp, bright oolong with a lot of fragrance this tea is a great choice!
