Bao Zhong is a lightly oxidized oolong tea from Taiwan that is harvested twice per year, with a spring crop in April and a winter harvest in December. Our Bao Zhong is made from the famous Qingxin tea cultivar, which presents a delicate palate with aromas of lilac and orchid when lightly oxidized. This classic style of tea is processed with an oxidation level of less than 20% to preserve these ethereal, high floral aromas. The name Bao Zhong was originally a trade name used to describe any style of tea from Fujian or Taiwan that was wrapped by hand in paper sheets and sold by 150g net weight and is alternatively spelled as Pouchong in the tea trade.
