bao zhong

origin: taiwan

region: nantou

ingredients: oolong tea

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

Bao Zhong is a lightly oxidized oolong tea from Taiwan that is harvested twice per year, with a spring crop in April and a winter harvest in December. Our Bao Zhong is made from the famous qingxin tea cultivar, which presents a delicate palate with aromas of lilac and orchid when lightly oxidized. The name Bao Zhong refers to the "wrapped style" of traditional processing, in which this tea undergoes a very light rolling in order to keep its twisted leaf shape, and an oxidation level of less than 20% is maintained to preserve ethereal, high floral aromas. Bao Zhong is alternatively spelled as Pouchong in the tea trade.
