From The Mountain Tea co

BaoZhong, also known as Pouchong, treads the line between green tea and oolong tea. It holds the distinction of being the lightest, least oxidized oolong in our collection at 10% fermentation. This tea is perfect for tea lovers that are looking to enjoy something similar to a fine, high elevation whole-leaf green tea with a rounder, less sharp palate. Following the traditional methods, our BaoZhong is prepared twisted, not rolled.

Steep using water between 85C and 87C. Using lower temperatures and maintaining as much heat as possible is key to bringing out the best in this leaf. Brew no longer than two minutes; the liquor should be a pale green-gold. The mouthfeel tingles, reminiscent to mintiness. Take care to notice the slight, almost whimsical notes of lupine, as your attention inevitably will be drawn to the warm, enveloping flavor of honeydew and cucumber. The finish is crisp and lingers only slightly.

A nice and light tasting oolong from Mountain Tea. Vegetal and soft fruity flavors dominate the flavor of this tea. The early steeps were a sweet vegetal taste with a bit of fruity undertone, like peas or cucumber and melon. After the initial three or so steeps, the vegetal flavor became more savory – almost salty. So the tea had an interesting combination of a vegetable-broth start and a sweet fruity finish. In some of the steeps I also noted a bit of a pine flavor which accented the vegetal notes well. The decent thickness of the body lent further credence to my thinking of the flavor as broth-like. Pretty enjoyable green oolong tea.
