DESCRIPTION

Very lightly oxidized (10-15%) so very suitable if you are looking for a light tea but don't like the grassiness of a green tea. The Bao Zhong is sweet and bright. A Bao Zhong is originally from Pinglin district (the Wen Shan Bao Zhong), this version comes from Nantou near Minjian and is very favorable in price/quality.

Bao Zhong means "wrapped with paper" and refers to the original way this tea was made. The tea used to be wrapped in cotton paper and dried by baking. Nowadays, this is no longer done. The leaf is rolled after light oxidation and fried in a wok, then dried.
