Super rare bao zhong style oolong grown in the footholls of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State! I recently grabbed the last few pounds of this exquisite batch. Terrific, dark, very long (up to three inch) leaves that when steeped exhibit that cool, fragrant, sweet, slightly earthy fragrance reminiscent of a classic bao zhong. This has about the same level of oxidization (~30%) as a bao zhong with a similar, yet distinctly different flavor profile.

Cooling, round, floral, back-of-the-throat mouthfeel. Lingering aftertaste, deeply satisfying. A truly great tea, and as local as you can get!

This is beyond rare, folks. Get it while you can, cuz when it is gone, it is gone!

    Nice, unique tasting tea. I'm not a tea connoisseur, so I don't know the "correct" words to described this tea. It has a main taste that reminded me a little of sage and then had a fruity aftertaste. It's an interesting, smooth taste.

    What a great and original oolong. I can't believe this is grown domestically! So much flavor. I love this tea.

    I am an avid oolong fan and this tea is super! We just got it this week and served it with our Thanksgiving dinner. What a treat! Indeed it is much like a bao zhong, but more stone fruit and complexity with a loooong finish!

    Great with salty food, I might add.

    We will be hoarding this for sure. It is so unique and satisfying.

Water: 185-195°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.
A living legend!
