I think this is my favorite tea of all time. Thanks, Josh, for introducing me to green oolongs, thus eliminating my fear of ALL oolongs!
Wen Shan Bao Zhong
Wen Shan refers to the name of a growing region in Northern Taiwan. Wen Shan Bao Zhong leaves are slightly twisted rather than rolled as in other Oolongs. The name Bao Zhong refers to a method of packaging that started about 160 years ago in which tea farmers packaged their tea in 250 gram elongated square packages. A mark was then placed on this tea that said Bao Zhong, or wrapping type. When the Bao Zhong method came to Taiwan Wen Shan in northern Taiwan produced the best quality Bao Zhong. As a result, Wen Shan Bao Zhong became a commonly used term. This tea is oxidized 15%-30% with a wonderful fresh floral fruit fragrance. Wen Shan Bao Zhong is most famous for its aroma, which is sure to open your eyes any time of the day or early evening. May also serve as a light desert.
