Bao Zhong Oolong Tea from Arbor Teas

Style: Pouchong Tea – Region: Anhui, China

Jan. 28th, 2013

I enjoyed the subtle flavor of this tea and would drink it again. The smell was a little strange at first, smelling kind of like pea soup, but faded into a more floral tone as it steeped.

Jan. 14th, 2013

Keemun can be really diverse, so I never know exactly what to expect when trying it. This one really surprised me--while being recognizable as Keemun.

A very complex, organic-tasting Keemun (and I mean organic in the sense that it tastes natural and multifaceted, not overly refined or simplified).

The dry leaf c...

Jan. 11th, 2013

Long, wiry leaf is dark in color for a pouchong / Bao Zhong.

Upon brewing, produces an intensely aromatic cup! Aroma floral, honey-like, and very complex. Buttery smooth yet with depth and richness. Full-bodied yet without much astringency.

I brewed a second cup, and while it was still quite flavorful and full...

Dry Leaf: I get a sweet vegetal aroma. I can even see someone say grassy.
Wet Leaf: I get a vegetal aroma almost like a boiled green bean or something close to that.
Liquor: Clear and pale.
Taste: I get a light refreshing sweet vegetal flavor. The broth gives your tongue a slight dryness on your tongue that is nice....

Jun. 28th, 2012

I thought this was a top-notch green tea!

Dry leaf is tightly rolled and pleasingly aromatic, with a floral aroma suggesting orchid. Upon steeping, the leaf is slow to unfurl and slow to infuse, and the more familiar grassy aromas of green tea begin to slowly come out. The leaves are completely intact and unbroken...

This is the best green tea that I've had yet, and possibly my favorite tea! Paired with lunch on a hot day, I was extremely satisfied by its taste! It was refreshing and smooth, and had no bitterness whatsoever ( which is one of my usual complaints with tea). While it is a little pricey, I feel like this tea is wort...

Apr. 30th, 2012

Short summary: very smooth, extremely pleasing flavor, not the strongest aroma, and picky on brewing temperature. Exceptionally smooth for this price.

Dry leaf is intensely aromatic, and packed very loosely. A lot of leaf (by volume) is needed to produce a normal-strength cup.

I found this tea was picky about b...

Apr. 24th, 2012

I was surprised to find that I strongly preferred the slightly less expensive Keemun Grade 1 from TeaVivre to this offering. While this was a very good tea, it did not wow me as being outstanding, or even higher quality than a typical Keemun. It was just different. I was surprised at the strength of the cup, the dar...

Apr. 19th, 2012

I liked this tea right from the start, but the more I drank this tea, the more it has grown on me. Very full-bodied, intense flavor, smooth. Fruity, with a fair amount of smokiness. Relatively little leaf is needed for a bold-flavored cup. Surprisingly, I like this a lot better than the Keemun Hao Ya from the same ...

Apr. 17th, 2012

This tea is okay. I don't like the flavor that much. It reminds me of flake cereal. It didn't seem very strong when I first tasted it, but I brewed it a long time. Now that I'm noticing the flavor more, it seems stronger. I added cream and sugar.

Apr. 17th, 2012

Dry leaf is strongly aromatic, with a slight smokiness and a strong dried fruit quality. Surprisingly little leaf is needed to brew a flavorful cup. I find it hard to gauge the amount of leaf necessary, because the thin, wiry leaf occupies a lot of space, but also expands greatly upon brewing.

The brewed cup has a...

Apr. 15th, 2012

This Chun Mee had a subtlety and sweetness that I have never encountered in this type of tea. Dry leaf is very aromatic, typical of this style of tea but more suggesting of sweetness. Like all the teas I received from Teavivre, it smelled extremely fresh.

Compared to other chun mee I've had, this one was sweeter, ...

This tea was served to me, Gong Fu style, by Evan. Dry leaf was extremely aromatic.

I found it to be simultaneously strong and refined. The other mao feng green teas I've tried have either been relatively coarser-tasting, with more astringency, or smooth but too weak. This was a powerful tea with a bold flavor, b...

Indeed very special mystical and mesmerizing mouth lingering taste as we go along from first cup to second cup. This is one of my favorite tea, The tea is medium bodied and ...

This tea has a nice, dark color and a crisp, smoky aroma. The flavor is not bitter, not too dry and not very smoky at all, as I thought it would be from the aroma and my experience with other Keemun teas. It is even less smoky than its nearly as delicious sibling, Hao Ya “B”. It has a very clean, crisp, fresh tast...

I can't believe the price on this tea: 6 ounces for $3. I wasn't expecting much, and I was literally blown away. This is an outstanding tea for this price. Many whole leaves, and mostly large, only slightly broken pieces. The leaf is lightly packed and takes up a lot of space. The instructions say to brew with 2-3...

Aug. 9th, 2011

Aroma is predominantly grassy, more grassy than any other green tea--drinking it conjures up images of being out in my yard, digging around in the grass. There are some interesting floral tones. Flavor is rather muted; most teas with similar aromas are a bit more sour, astringent, and brisk, but this tea mainly leave...

Another sample from Life in Teacup, this is my kind of tea: a classic Chinese pan-fired green tea wild a bold flavor. This tea looks typical at first, but as I started experimenting with brewing it, I found it had a lot of personality.

After a few trials, I found that I achieved the best results for my tastes by us...

Dec. 16th, 2010

Pouring the tea into the cup, the color is a medium brown color. It smells sour with a complex flowery undertone. The taste is mildly sour but incredibly sweet. There are hints of a rose taste with overtone of a flower that I can not identify.
