Pinglin Bao Zhong

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTW-17

Situated in the north of the island of Taiwan, to the south of the capital, the town of Pinglin remains true to the traditional Wulong style of "Bao Zhong" with the leaves rolled lengthways into twists and sorted by hand one by one to create uniformity between them.

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.

Qi Lan Xiang

Rolled into thin twists, true to the style of Guangdong in China, this wulong  has, however, been roasted only once (rather than twice) preserving its greenness and its distinctly floral aromatic bouquet.

Shan Lin Xi

The mountain of Shan Lin Xi (Taiwan) is steep, imposing and highly exposed to the natural elements. Its wild character seems to be reflected in the Wulong tea produced in this region.

Anxi Tie Guan Yin

Legendary rolled wulong from Fujian (China), Tie Guan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy) is one of the country’s best representatives.
