"A definite winner from Beautiful Taiwan Tea Company."
BTTC Top 3 Best Seller!
Farmer Chang is a third generation farmer who grows outstanding Baozhong in a simply pristine environment! His tea is very smooth and drinkable. It won't get bitter no matter what you do with it and you'll get floral notes and a clean feeling from the environment where it's grown on Chang's small family farm. He's so good, he has won first place more than once in the Shiding District Wenshan Baozhong Farmer's Competition!
I classify this tea as a Green Oolong as it is so close to a green but just barely crosses over the line into Oolong territory. Although some years, he oxidizes it a bit more than usual. This is a great tea for beginners or seasoned sippers alike.
Baozhong has been growing in Taiwan for more than a hundred years! Literally "wrapped kind“ it refers to how the farmers originally wrapped however much tea you wanted in paper when you bought it at the market (at least that's what I heard).
