Received some as a sample and fell in love with its gentle, fragrant, flavorful, almost sweet character. Found it sold out when I went to order more and hope that it'll be back for 2023.
The aquatic veggie notes from both the 2022 baozhong and green teas open up into sweet buttery goodness. While I thoroughly enjoy both teas as sipping beverages, I can easily see the green tea used as the base for a brothy soup. These teas are multi-taskers! So happy I got my hands on this year's batch.
Just finished the last bit of this year's harvest and it is awesome.
Impatiently waiting for next year's harvest
This tea is really, really good. It has a wonderful vegetal sweetness backed by a buttery smooth body. I also love the astringency this tea has. It holds up to many brews too. Look out for this tea whenever it's available, and support the small-scale Old Master behind it!
My goodness---how DOES he do this degree of full floral and buttery smoothness all at the same time?! This may be the best Baozhong to ever come across my lips!
