This is a rare Huang Shan Bao Zhong Imperial Oolong of the highest grade - made in small artisan batches from the chin xin oolong cultivar.

Lighter oxidization this year yields a slightly greener taste. Incredibly fresh tasting, long sweet complex tones, light butteriness, and a cool round finish. Our favorite batch of this tea in years.

Bao Zhong tea is processed with a minimum of rolling and drying, resulting in large, deep green leaves that have undergone only slight oxidation.

This tea is good for many steepings. Silky mouth-feel and long floral exotic finish.

One of our Artisan Reserve oolong teas, a line of small batch handmade teas from a craft handed down over generations. Hand selected for having all the hallmark qualities of the highest grades with noteable personality accents.

A stupendous artisan Pouchong Oolong. Rich and succulent, slightly sweet, long finish.

AKA Formosa Pouchong, Baozhong.

1.9 oz Pouch - $20.95

    Nice taste and many steepings. This tea has a lovely taste: sweet, smooth, and lightly floral/fruity. I could get several good steepings from it, too, which was nice.

    Light and refreshing oolong. Lightly floral but not overpowing floral like some green oolongs. Good introduction to green oolongs.

    I am really enjoying my pouch of this green oolong. The leaves are wiry and long, the dried leaf smeels incredibly fresh and the resultant liquor is round and full and silky smooth with a sexy finish. I have to say this is one of the top 5 teas I have had in the entire world. And I happen to have travelled the entire world.

    Its good, but I think it could be a little more full flavored.

Water: 200°F | Leaves: 2 teaspoons per 6 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 3 minutes. Add 30 seconds for each subsequent steep.

Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t overboil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time.
Leaves can be resteeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
Polyphenol in oolong tea is effective in controlling weight. It activates the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving triglycerides. Studies have confirmed that a 2-3 cup per day intake of oolong tea contributes to enhancing the function of fat metabolism and controlling obesity.
Only tea grown in Ping Ling county in Northern Taiwan and processed in a specific style can be considered pure Bao Zhong. Bao Zhong is harvested during spring (March – April) and winter (October – November). After the tea leaves have sprouted, they are plucked and left to dry in the sun for a few hours to reduce moisture. Then the leaves are delicately rolled sideways while being roasted to minimize the oxidation and allow the leaves to maintain a vibrant, green color. Traditional techniques such as hand processing and wrapping the leaves in paper before roasting are still used today.
