Bao Zhong (also known as pouchong) is an exquisite Taiwanese tea with characteristics of both green and black tea – owing to the level of oxidation between the two types. This special reserve grade tea boasts large, uniform olive green leaves that have been sun-withered, pan-fired, and twice-dried. This year’s harvest is phenomenal – the amber-green liquor has an intoxicating aroma of lilac and lily of the valley, and the flavor is bright, delicate, and lightly melon-sweet.
Steeping Instructions: Pour 6 oz. heated water (185-195˚F) over 1 heaping tablespoon tea leaves and steep 3-5 minutes. Remove leaves and enjoy. Re-steep as desired.
