£7.50£10.50

A partially oxidised and very lightly roasted Baozhong oolong both grown and processed without pesticides by our friend Mr Chen on his small 9 acre farm in Wenshan in northern Taiwan which only produces around 200 kilograms of tea per year.

We’re very pleased with this year’s tea which is even more texturally outstanding than previous years, with a smooth, silky mouthfeel and a candied sweetness that lingers in the mouth long after it has been drunk. Less explosively floral than some of our other Taiwanese oolongs, the light roasting gives it a biscuit-like nutty edge that combines well with soft vegetal and citrus flavour of the tea.

Best brewed with water that has been cooled to 95°C, with 5g of leaf per 150ml of water.
