From Ten Ren

Pouchong is also known as Chinese Green tea by some. However, it is a slightly fermented tea (10%-20%), which differs from Green tea, a completely unfermented tea. When brewed, it produces a light yellow hue, a mild aroma, and a delicate flavor. Pouchong tea, originated in the Pinlin region outside of Taipei, Taiwan. In Taiwan, Pouchong is only produced in this region and this region’s Pouchong is recognized as the finest in the world. Pouchong has a milder flavor than Oolong tea yet stronger than Green tea. Its taste is appreciated by tea connoisseurs worldwide.

This is a light green tea with a faint greenish-yellow liquor. The tea has a subtle floral aroma that is mixed with hints of cut grass somewhat like strolling through a rose garden. The taste of the tea is also light and pleasantly green with the usual hints of floral plants. One of this tea’s most winning characteristics is that its flavor changes as you swallow; somehow the tea tastes multidimensional. The perspicacious drinker will detect initial grassy flavors that ease into floral overtones that change depending on whether the mouth is open or not. After swallowing the tea leaves myriad aftertastes, both pleasant and perplexing. One can sip this tea multiple times with entirely different taste experiences. The tea is solid yet light, direct yet ambiguous. Exploring the depths is a truly cerebral experience.

The tea is also robust with respect to multiple brews and acquires a slight sweetness with more plant-y character as one continues.

Ten Ren’s Special Pouchong pretty much tastes like a darker green tea to me. Gets a bit better reinfusions than most green teas and is easier to brew as a very green oolong. Although it is enjoyable to drink I do not think I will be reordering more when I finish what I have.
