A  Baozhong oolong both grown and processed by our friend Mr Chen on his small 9 acre farm in Wenshan in northern Taiwan. He only produces around 200 kilograms of tea per year and uses no artificial fertilisers or pesticides.

We bought this tea in 2016 and felt at the time that the aroma and taste was more subdued than previous years, so we decided to let the tea rest rather than sell it straight away. Now the tea is much denser and more fragrant with a smooth, silky texture and a candied sweetness. Less explosively floral than some of our other Taiwanese oolongs, the very 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.
