Super rare bao zhong style oolong grown in the footholls of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State! I recently grabbed the last few pounds of this exquisite Spring 2010 batch. Terrific, dark, very long (up to three inch) leaves that when steeped exhibit that cool, fragrant, sweet, slightly earthy fragrance reminiscent of a classic bao zhong. This has about the same level of oxidization (~30%) as a bao zhong with a similar, yet distinctly different flavor profile.
Cooling, round, floral, back-of-the-throat mouthfeel. Lingering aftertaste, deeply satisfying. A truly great tea, and as local as you can get!
This is beyond rare, folks. Get it while you can, cuz when it is gone, it is gone!
