About Baozhong Expert’s Pick

Baozhing is a lightly oxidized oolong tea that is gently grassy with the aroma of light moss and white lily flowers. and twist shape leaf
Baozhong is a lightly oxidized oolong tea that’s perfect for those who prefer more floral or grassy teas.

Our Baozhong is an elegant style of oolong from Pinglin that dates back to the beginning of Taiwanese tea making. We call this one ‘Expert’s Pick’ because we chose the batch with the help of a famous tea-competition judge.
This bright oolong is light-bodied yet energetic. Aromas of light moss and white lily transition into a floral, gently grassy sip of this classic Taiwanese oolong.

The name Baozhong
This tea has several names, including Baozhong, Pouchong, and Wenshan Bao Zhong. The name Baozhong means “the wrapped kind”, which refers to the packaging style used at the time.
