Old Master Baozhong And Green Tea

2022 marks the 52st year in a row that our friend and his family have made this same tea from this same soil as his father and grandfather had before him. 2022’s pick is no different than any of the many years that we have been lucky enough to drink this legendary Baozhong. It is a spectacular mix of fresh grass, buttery floral and lingering sweet peach. There is a good reason that ‘connections’ are the only way to get this tea. 

Made by Wang You Li, one of our favorite tea masters in Pinglin, this BaoZhong is deep, rich, sweet and full. Processed in the old style with all the perfections and imperfections intact, this is a connoisseur's tea. This year, we were only able to get 1200g due to the young nature of some of the tea trees and the fact that the limited production run of this amazing tea is requested by many so it is rationed. We are proud every year to be able to share with people outside of Taiwan!

This year we have also managed to get a small amount of green tea made from the same material as the Baozhong. It tastes amazingly similar to a Japanese Sencha, but with an unmistakably Taiwanese soul...

Magnificent Bao Zhong

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.

Another wonderful creation from the "Old Master" series of teas.

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.

Can't wait for next year

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!

THIS is a WOW!

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!
