Wen Shan Bao Zhong Oolong

Legendary tea which can be categorized between green and oolong teas comes from Wen Shan mountains nearby the capital Taipei. Tea comes from the Chin Xin cultivar grown in 300 – 400 m altitude, picked in the spring of 2023. Moderate oxidation around 10 – 15 %. Grown and processed by Mr. Ong. The sweet, intoxicating flowery scent of the infused leaves lasts for many brews. We smell spring garden in blossom as well as heavier, deeper rose and orchid tones mingling together with fruity tastes, among which dominate peach, mango and honey melon. All this is wrapped in creamy, silky infusion of bright green-blue colour.
