A deep and abiding love of Oriental Beauty

A deep and abiding love of Oriental Beauty

The Fragrant Leaf sent me this....

I ordered a Wild Amber Oolong but this came instead.

Wen Shan Bao Zhong Oolong! A mistake highly in my favor both in value and I would wager in taste as well.
A really nice tea. Tasted totally different when I brewed it in my Gaiwan than when I brewed it in my new Yixing pot. Much preferred the gaiwan.

Here is the description from the vendor:

The name "Bao Zhong" comes from the Chinese term meaning "wrapped". It dates back to the time when tea farmers used to wrap their tea in paper during the drying process. Produced in the verdant hills of northern Taiwan's Pinglin area, Bao Zhong tea is a twisted-leaf, "green-style" oolong with aromas of flowers and melon and a taste that is light and sweet. Our Bao Zhong tea is hand crafted by Wang Cheng Yi, a fifth generation tea farmer. 
Harvest: May 2015
Oxidation Level: 10%

I love that this company tells me the oxidation levels of their teas, it will really help me learn my oolongs.
Crazy tea monkey liked it too...
