Huang Shan Bao Zhong

In stock: 18

Origin: Taiwan


Made in small artisan batches, Huang Shan Bao Zhong is organic and the highest grade in its category! Bao Zhong is processed with minimal handling, from hand picking to rolling to drying; these leaves are handled as little as possible to ensure the freshest taste possible! This process allows the leaves to keep their vibrant jade color. Once steeped, incredible freshness is the first taste that the tea drinker experiences as the cool liquid rolls into the mouth. This freshness is followed by a creamy, buttery and a long sweet undertone, mild vegetal, mineral notes and finishes with a silky mouth feel. Huang Shan Bao Zhong holds up extremely well in multiple infusions, making this artesian tea a favorite for all tea enthusiasts!


Oolong tea leaves
Use 1-1.5 tsp of tea per 8oz/200ml of water. Heat water to 195F/90C and steep for 2-3 minutes.

Unlike other Formosa oolongs, this one is an average quality tea, not great aroma and taste.

I didn't expect this quality! Then I smelled the water from the first rinse and smelled springtime. The scent of fresh fruit like pears and kiwi. The soup is thick and sweet and coats the tongue and teeth with a lasting sensation of lilacs and sweet cream. A very fine tea that will please anyone who enjoys lightly fermented Taiwan oolongs.

Awesome! Wonderful aroma! Whenever I put the dry leaves into my thermos or my teapot, the aroma that greets me when I open the tin is a whiff of heaven!

This is a really great tasting oolong, with a beautiful floral odor and mineral notes in the flavor. It is a nice balance of my two favorite characteristics in an oolong, and brews a great second cup as well.
