NEW: Imperial Wan Shan Bao Zhong tea

Teas of the Bao Zhong variety appeared on Taiwan more than 150 years ago, in the time of the Qing Dynasty (1644-19110). In the old days the tea ready for use was wrapped in square bamboo paper and sold in rectangular 4-liang packages. This is where the term “bao zhong” (a wrapped sort) originates from.

The tea grows on the fertile soils of vast high-mountain plantations at altitude exceeding 400 meters above the sea level – which determines its unusual flavor. The tea’s solid elongated leaves are curled in the shape of wavy strips, their wrinkly surface colored dark-green. After brewing the leaves yield a clear honey-green infusion tending to golden. The drink combines a kind of noble fragrance with notes of orchid and a mild yet rich flavor ending in a slightly sweet aftertaste.
