Origin: Wenshan, northern Taiwan
Harvested by hand on October 22, 2012.
Process: lightly oxidized, unroasted Baozhong.
Test brewing: 3 grams for 6 minutes in porcelain.
The dry leaves appear a little bit smaller than usual. Their color is bright and green. The scent reminds me of fresh lavender.
The brew has a very good clarity and light green/yellow color.
The tea tastes very light, sweet and fresh. The fragrances are flowery and bright. To me, it tastes a little bit like a marshmallow melting in the mouth.The sweet aftertaste lingers calmly for a long while. It's very delicate.
The open leaves are very small and contain many buds. No wonder this Baozhong tastes and smells so light, fine and fresh!
