From Arbor Teas

This beautiful example of an organic Bao Zhong oolong tea (also known as Pao Zhong) is uniquely grown and manufactured in the Huang Shan area of the Anhui Provence of China. Made according to the traditional methods of the Wen Shan area of northern Taiwan, this tea is manufactured by an award-winning Taiwanese Tea Master on a small family farm. Using the Jin Xuan varietal instead of the traditionally-used Cing Xin varietal, this organic loose leaf tea breaks the traditional definition of what we expect from an organic Chinese tea and, similarly, what we expect from a Taiwanese Bao Zhong oolong. Its long, green, lightly twisted, and lightly oxidized leaves produce a beautiful aroma of buttered greens and pronounced wildflowers. Smooth and lightly creamy, this organic oolong has very little astringency in the cup and ends with a lingering dry floral finish with a hint of almond. Exquisite!

I used a smidgin more leaf and brewed for less time than before. The resulting flavor: #2 pencil. Not sure how that happened, but I’ll know to keep the steeps longer on this one in the future.

I got some sample sizes of the oolongs from Arbor Teas and decided to start with this one. I did it in my gaiwan, short and quick infusions.

It’s got decent flavor. It’s not outstanding, but it’s nice. The price isn’t bad, but I think there are Bao Zhongs that I like better.
