From Taiwan Tea Crafts

Wenshan Bao Zhong tea is a good example of how Taiwan is so distinctive in its tea offering to the world. With its light and refined taste, Bao Zhong tea is the perfect choice for people who wish to drink green tea but are not attracted to its grassiness. Its gently curled, lightly oxidized full leaves of the dried tea are simply beautiful to look at. When steeped, the leaves unfurl rapidly to reveal their intriguing aroma of green vegetal notes that evokes buttered green beans with distinctive floral overtones. Nothing aggresses the senses. The liqueur is smooth, refreshing, and very pleasant. The light baking that seals the flavours and aroma of this tea adds a very pleasant almond-like finish and taste. If this is your first time trying out a Bao Zhong, you simply can’t go wrong with this 3rd Place Competition Tea! For those of you who are tempted but need to be convinced, we recommend that you purchase a 10 g sample before committing to one of the tins or box sealed by the competition organizers. What beautiful gifts these can make! You can also consider our regular Wenshan Bao Zhong, from the same grower, or our house Baked Bao Zhong and Deep Baked Bao Zhong for a more biscuity experience.

This is the stuff of dreams right here. Just an amazing taste and smell experience. The perfumey leaves emit heady aromas of lilac, gardenia, orchid, and jasmine. It gives a taste sensation that I can only describe as flowers dancing on the tongue. The refined floral flavor here is velvety smooth and complex accompanied by sweet warm grassy tones that evoke rainforests and springtime.

Grandpa style is the way to go with this tea. It’s not my usual steeping method, but it lets you fully experience the ethereal aroma and makes an otherwise pricey tea economical.

I seldom rate teas at a 100, but the competition grade baozhongs are really on another level. For some odd reason, TTC only sells it in 10g, 150g, and 300g sizes. The 10g sampler though lasted me an entire month.

Impressive staying power. I’ve seen otherwise for the competition grades-I actually liked the Farmer’s choice more than the Competition grade for BTTC.

Does grandpa style mean longer steeps (3+ min) or that you just drink with the leaves still in the whole time?
