Quintissentially Taiwanese, Wenshan Baozhong is a lightly oxidised oolong with a creamy mouthfeel. Its blue-green twisted leaves make for a fragrant, fresh and cooling tea, ideal for humid summer days.

Because it is only 10-15% oxidised, it is closer to a green tea on the oxidation spectrum, giving it a grassy or vegetal flavour. Yet it also has a wonderful floral aroma and fragrant aftertaste that is characteristic of oolong teas. 

It also has a creamy mouthfeel, which comes from the
 青心烏龍 Qingxin Oolong cultivar, and careful delicate processing.

For more about this tea, how its made, what its name means, and different varieties to try, read our article: What is Wenshan Baozhong tea? 

Our Wenshan Baozhong tea is made by the Bai family, who have been producing tea for five generations. Read their full story here. 

As a general rule, it’s best to avoid boiling water with Wenshan Baozhong tea. You can rinse the tea first to speed up the unfurling process and get a stronger first infusion.
