Wenshan Baozhong Reserve is a light, floral and fresh buttery oolong! Wenshan is a range of mountains that surround Taipei in northern Taiwan; it is famous for producing a type of oolong that is twisted rather than rolled. It's a craft production style that is very traditional, and actually predates the rolled oolongs for which Taiwan is now known. Called Baozhong or Pouchong, these teas are the lightest oxidized amongst Taiwanese teas - usually in the range of 5%-10% - and only lightly roasted to preserve their fresh, vibrant nature. Our Wenshan Baozhong comes from Pinglin - where terroir and skilled craftsmanship combine to produce the most reputable teas. Harvested in April, this tea is smooth, sweet and enticingly floral, it is creamy and buttery in mouthfeel; like fresh French pastries with spring lilacs in bloom.
