From auraTeas

Baochong Oolong (or Bao Chong, Bao Zhong) is a lightly oxidized oolong tea originated from northern Taiwan. Although Baochong is categorized as Oolong tea, in Taiwan, the term Baochong is to distinguish this long twisted style tea from half ball Dongding style Oolong. As a local said: North Baochong, South Oolong.
Baochong is very lightly oxidized, just next to Green Tea. The natural floral aroma distinguish it from other Oolongs. The best Baochong is produced in Taipei area, all Baochong teas grown in this area are named Wenshan Baochong after Wenshan region in Taipei.
For Baochong tea, you’ll look for its fresh clear flowery notes. Good Baochong’s intoxicating aroma will lingers in your throat.

It’s unusual to see a green oolong that doesn’t have rolled up leaves. These are more like little loose twists. The tea has a smooth, cooked-fruit (peaches or apricots maybe?) flavour and a sweet scent that remind me of lilacs. It has quite a few similarities to the Aged Wuyi Variety oolong that I tried from this company earlier, but it’s a bit sweeter and fruitier and lacks those bakey notes and roasted scent that the former had.

EDIT: Apologies for leaving the note unfinished last night – I got distracted. :D

Great for a relaxing tea session. Steeped this 4 times and love how every infusion is different on my tongue!

Don’t be afraid of this tea: Hotter water seems to work best, and brings out malty notes.
