Bao Zhong (Pouchong) tea is the "full aroma" oolong. It is lightest oxidized Formosa oolong and it is lightly roasted and this gives clear green infusion, fresh and delicious taste.

Bao Zhong (Pouchong) tea promotes weight loss due contained in tea theine (tea caffeine) , vitamins and minerals. Affects lipid metabolism, helps with atherosclerosis, strengthens blood vessels, relieves tension, promotes relaxation and improves mood.

Bao Zhong is in season during spring (March-April) and winter (October-November) time periods. It is a light green and lightly fermented oolong and will oxidize fast if not stored properly.

Leaves: grayish green, more twisted than rolled.


Bao Zhong (Pouchong) gives off a floral and melon fragrance and has a rich, mild taste, with notes of sugar and cream.


The general recommendation for this tea is to brew it as all light oxidized tea.

We recommend glass or porcelain pot. You can also use clay pot, but check that before no stronger teas were brewing there (for example red tea).

The temperature of water used for making Bao Zhong Oolong is lower. We recommend to use water about 80-85°C (175-185°F).

Use approximate 3 grams of tea leaves for 250 ml of water. It requires a longer brewing time than most of other Taiwan oolongs. 3-5 minutes is recommended and then increase steeping time for every next brewing. Same amount of tea can be prepared for several times.

Additional information

This is one of the traditional ways of brewing. Depending on individual gustatory preferences you can you can vary brewing time from 35s to 5 minutes.

You can also use Chinese traditional way of brewing - spilling, using Gaiwan and brew for 3-5 second each time.

Please note, that it is natural tea with high content of active elements, including caffeine, and minerals and some unusual feelings could appear. In that case we recommend decrease quantity of dry leaves and brewing time.
