Wen Shan Bao Zhong Taiwanese loose leaf green oolong tea

Wen Shan Bao Zhong

Regular price $ 16.00
From the Wen Shan mountains in Northern Taiwan, this tea was traditionally wrapped in paper—a process literally translated as “Bao Zhong.” Modern technique lightly oxidizes the tea, making it a very green oolong, whereupon the leaves are twisted rather than rolled into little balls, and then lightly roasted. It is one of the most fragrant of oolongs, with scents ranging from herbaceous to buttery vanilla.  Bao Zhong brews very easily—190-200F will do, and is difficult to over-steep—producing a light creamy liqueur with the fragrance of a spring meadow.
