Wenshan Baozhong – (also spelled Paochong) is a lightly oxidized oolong tea with the qualities of both oolong and green tea.
As a partially oxidized tea, Baozhong is classified as an oolong tea, but it’s oxidation period is less than typical high mountain oolongs of Taiwan. For this reason Baozhong is often referred to as a green tea. True green teas, however, are un-oxidized.
This Baozhong tea is from the Wenshan district of Taiwan’s Taipei county. The tea has a very light, fresh taste with floral tones. It steeps to a bright green liquor with a very refreshing flavor.
