Another excellent bao zhong from TTC. This one is a treat for the nose. Lots of pleasant floral aromas that evoke lilac and daffodils. The taste is light and fresh with a lingering floral sweetness. There’s a grassy, seaweed note that hangs around for the first couple of steeps and then fades. Good mouthfeel and soft mineral hints appear in later steeps. This one doesn’t have the depth of body and thickness of competition grade baozhong, but is still very satisfying and delicious.
I steeped this 5 times starting at 195 F increasing the temperature a few degrees with each infusion. Steep times were 1m, 20s, 50s, 2m, and 3m.
