One of the classics from Taiwan. Bao Zhong, together with Tie Guan Yin and Fo Shou, were the original three teas brought from China for cultivation. Its name translates as the Wrapped Kind and comes from the traditional method of packaging whereby it would be wrapped in paper sheets. Usually, this tea is one of the greener oolongs. However, our version is slightly different, because ours is encouraged to oxidise just a little bit longer. This allows the flavour profile to gradually shift away from the vegetal spectrum, until it strikes a perfect balance between vegetal, floral and fruity notes. This tea is also one of the few Taiwanese oolongs that is not ball rolled, a key factor that makes it rather suitable for aging. However, do not attempt to store this away in your cupboard and just forget about it, as proper oolong ageing is an art in its own right. Sometimes known as Wenshan Baozhong, in reference to the historical area where it used to be predominantly cultivated, and alternatively spelled as Pouchong. A versatile tea that is also a top choice for cold brewing.
