From Taiwan Tea Crafts

”Heritage” is an understatement when it comes to this beautiful Winter Bao Zhong Tea. The maker, Mr. Chen, is 91 years old. He was born under the Japanese occupation and was 28 when they left the island in 1945. At about the same, time he started producing tea in the hills not far from Pinglin next to the family’s ancestral stone house where he still resides and continues, to this day, to practice his craft with the help of his son and daughter-in-law (not the other way around!). Apart from the few mobile phones laid on the furniture, stepping into his house is like visiting a living museum of rural life in Wenshan. Tasting his Bao Zhong tea offers the same experience which can also be reproduced in your own home! His Bao Zhong tea is slightly more oxidized, like it used to be, before today’s trend to greener teas. This imparts another layer of mineral complexity to the tea and a rounder texture. Still, the aroma of buttered green beans with distinctive floral overtones is definitely there. Nothing aggresses the senses. This winter offering has freshness and depth that makes this a unique tea. For the love of Bao Zhong tea but also for the love of Taiwan, and Mr. Chen, you must experience this tea.

Another brilliant Bao Zhong from TTC. Grandpa steeped 1.3g in my 10oz tea thermos using 200 F water. It opens with the scent and taste of fresh cut lilacs. Hints of orchids and something like a summer green meadow. Egg custard in the finish. The florals become deeper as it steeps with notes of bergamot and magnolia and a sugarcane sweetness that pleasantly lingers on. Stays juicy and floral till the very last sip. Boiling water amplifies the lilacs and gives a more TGY like flavor but the nuances are lost.
