Every time I drink this tea, I'm reminded of the extremely specific flavor of tinned bean sprouts. It's drinkable and the leaves are gorgeous, but the flavor doesn't really do it for me. I much prefer Tsui Yu, Jin Xuan, and Four Seasons Spring.
I did not pick up the floral notes in taste but there is floral aroma. Smooth, vegetal flavor more reminiscent of a black tea rather than oolong. Like all Eco Cha teas, high quality.
At first I thought it tasted similar to other eco cha oolongs, light, buttery, floral…but a strong dessert like sensation arrived…something like carrot cake, cinnamon and frosting which is long lasting. I’m curious no other reviews got these flavor notes.
Nothing against other high quality tea options from eco-cha. I really enjoy everything I have purchased. The Wenshan Baozhong is my favorite. It's always available at my house.
Floral, solid finish, and a clean aftertaste.
I purchased the winter 2022. Pinglin, Taiwan harvest. Elevation: 600m.
Eco-cha's baozhong tea is great, the flavor was very floral and bright, the clarity of the tea was pristine, with a gentle aftertaste. I actually forgot I had this tea and brewed it again 2 years later and the flavor was as good as ever which is unusual with unroasted teas because they tend to go bad. This tells me the base tea and the production quality was excellent. Thank you Eco cha!
