This might be the first bao zhong I’ve tried, or at least the first one I’ve made for myself. This one is very much like a green tea – it reminds me of a dragonwell, but more floral. Very smooth and fragrant, with a buttery quality in the first steep and assertively vegetal without being overpowering, and it gave my tongue a nice tingle. The butter subsides and the orchid-like florals become stronger in the second steep.
Not a very interesting write-up, but a very nice tea. I think this would be a good gateway for people who haven’t developed a taste for green tea – it’s very similar, but on a different level than most greens.
