Review of Bao Zhong

8 of 105 of 53 of 583 of 100

The aroma is gently floral, like you expect from a 'greener' oolong, but much more delicate. There are notes of lily, lilac, and honeysuckle, it reminds me of spring rather than a heady orchid filled conservatory.

Ah, ok, that tea is exactly what I needed! It is light and sweet with a very clean floral quality, it tastes like honeysuckle nectar, sun warmed and creamy. I often lament that honeysuckles do not produce enough nectar on those days I when I collect the tiny drops of nectar from a handful of flowers, this tea can give you the effect without all the work. There is a hint of greenness at the end of the sip and the aftertaste has a lingering floral quality.

This sounds like something I'd love...a little pricey though. I'm always looking for bargain-priced pouchong / bao zhong teas...and this doesn't seem to be one of them. Sometimes I actually enjoy the lower grades more because they have more edgy qualities, or more toasty notes, rather than being strictly floral and vegetal.
