What Is Pouchong Oolong Tea

Wenshan Baozhong Oolong Tea, also known as Pouchong Oolong Tea, is a lightly fermented tea from Taiwan’s Wenshan region. The name “Baozhong” translates to “wrapped kind,” reflecting the traditional practice of wrapping tea leaves in paper during processing. This tea is renowned for its tightly curled, dark green leaves and distinctive sweet orchid fragrance. Grown at an elevation of 800 meters in a misty, cool climate, Wenshan Baozhong Oolong Tea is celebrated for its natural sweetness and smooth, refreshing taste, making it a favorite among tea enthusiasts.

The history of Wenshan Baozhong Oolong Tea dates back to the late 19th century when tea cultivation began in the Wenshan region of Taipei, Taiwan. This area, with its ideal climate and fertile soil, quickly became known for producing high-quality teas. Originally, the pouchong tea was wrapped in paper during the drying process, giving it the name “Baozhong” or “wrapped kind.” Over time, this unique method contributed to the tea’s distinct characteristics, setting it apart from other oolong teas and establishing its reputation for elegance and exceptional aroma.

The processing of Wenshan Baozhong Oolong Tea involves several meticulous steps to preserve its delicate flavor and aroma. The pouchong tea leaves are handpicked, focusing on tender buds and young leaves. After harvesting, the leaves undergo withering to reduce moisture content. This is followed by light fermentation, which enhances the pouchong tea’s natural sweetness without overpowering its floral notes. The leaves are then tightly rolled and dried to lock in their fragrance. The final product showcases vibrant green leaves with red edges, producing a clear, honey-green liquor with a rich, floral aroma and a smooth, refreshing taste
