Product code: CSTW-17
Add to my notebook

Situated in the north of the island, to the south of the capital, the town of Pinglin remains true to the traditional style of "Bao Zhong" with the leaves rolled lengthways into twists.

Velvety and slightly saline, the liquor is vegetal (spinach) enhanced with accents of tomatoes and spices.

The evolution of flavours and mouthfeel is dynamic with a persistent finish refined with citrus (clementine) and flowers.
