2016 Spring new plantation Baozhong
Cultivar: Qingxin (ruanzhi) Oolong
Harvested by hand: April 29th, 2016
Origin: A 2 years young plantation near Pinglin, Wenshan
Process: Lightly oxidized Baozhong, very light roasting, with stems
The dry leaves have stems and are light green. Their dry scent is very flowery and fresh. The fragrance of the brew is bright and similar to lily flowers. The taste is zesty and sweet. It has substance and a smooth and bright aftertaste. It feels very young and clean, because these leaves come from a new plantation that has been harvested for the first time. This also explains why the open leaves are quite thick. They are processed more lightly than a 'subtropical forest' Baozhong in express to catch this young, fresh character of the leaves. This brew displays very flowery, fresh and bright flavors.
Brewing advice: this tea can take the heat! You can either brew fewer leaves for a long period and get more body and aftertaste, or you can opt to use more leaves and shorter brewing times to emphasize its flowery and lighter notes. A gaiwan will do just fine, but you can also use a hard clay teapot fired at a high temperature.
