Cultivar: Qingxin (ruanzhi) Oolong

Harvested by hand: April 12th, 2021

Origin: Pinglin, Wenshan region.

Process: Lightly oxidized Baozhong, twisted, no stems, well dried.

1. View

The dry leaves are dark green, small and thin. The open leaves show a light oxidation with little red color on the edge. The brew has a yellow hue with a good transparency.

2. Scents

The dry scents are very light and flowery. The brew has high notes of flowers growing in a subtropical forest. 

3. Taste

The taste is very sweet and has a very long good aftertaste. This year's profile is powerful.

Conclusion: This Subtropical Forest Baozhong has a powerful taste thanks to a good concentration of aromas and a refined scent typical of Qingxin Oolong.

Brewing tip: Baozhong with very light oxidation isn't well suited for long brews, because it can turn bitter if you're using a lot of leaves. So, this year, I recommend to brew this Baozhong in rather short steeps (in the beginning).
