From Harney & Sons

This tea captures the magic of PingLing. Considering the light color of the brewed tea, the leaves of this tea are surprisingly dark: army green to black leaves, coiled lightly like thick segments of rope.

The Taiwanese say BaoZhong is their most aromatic oolong. The tea is so fragrant, it is hard to stop smelling its blend of gardenia, jasmine, and butter aromas. Wenshan BaoZhang has a medium body, with some creaminess lightly coating the tongue. As its freshest, BaoZhong tastes of nothing but honeyed flowers. After a few brews, it loses some of that sheen and takes on a lovely seriousness.

Brew this tea at 205° TO 212° F for 2 to 4 minutes.

This is a really nice oolong. Very well balanced and understated. Although I did detect slight floral aromas while brewing, the taste is more vegetal and buttery. Very enjoyable.

Beautiful. The leaves smell almost spicy, and when steeped give off a pale green liquor, with a flowery character and a buttery smoothness. The first oolong that really impressed me.
