Baozhong: Spring 2015 Premium
This batch is my first acquisition of a charcoal-baked baozhong. This single change in processing technique has resulted in a fundamentally different tea. Although still more delicate than other Taiwan oolongs, the typical floral notes have been exchanged for a smooth, multidimensional roasted aroma. The flavor is light and remarkably sweet, with none of the the vegetal notes present in conventional baozhong. Try some in comparison with a batch from an earlier season for a clear illustration of the effects of charcoal baking on tea flavor.

Baozhong: Winter 2014 Premium
A classic winter-style baozhong with a light, creamy texture and smooth floral notes. This tea is rich and mellow in comparison to the brighter spring 2014 batch, a difference that is fairly typical between winter and spring teas.

Baozhong: Spring 2014 Premium
This batch has the most developed floral aroma among the currently available Baozhong teas. Leaves and cup both have distinct notes of wild ginger flowers, different from the more mellow orchid aroma of the winter teas.

Baozhong: Winter 2013 Premium
This tea’s bright, fresh flavor in the first infusions will be instantly familiar to green tea aficionados. After that the floral notes predominate, and the tea finishes very mild, much like the spring batch. Aside from the initial “green” experience (a hard-to-find feature among Baozhong teas), this batch varies more across infusions than its very even spring counterpart.

Baozhong: Spring 2013 Premium
Smooth and even through six-plus infusions, this batch has somewhat low-key though finely balanced floral elements in the flavor. The finish remains mild without astringency, even in the later infusions. This is a refined and classic example of Baozhong tea.
