Imperial Bao Zhong (Pouchong):

Brewing Suggestions
The trademark dark green twisted leaves and sweet sumptuous floral notes are elements that makes the Bao Zhong (also known as Pouchong in the west) unique, but great Bao Zhong have been hard to find in the market recently. As a result, it has been a long time since we’ve been able to offer a Bao Zhong worthy of our Imperial standard. But this year we are honored and excited to present this exceptional example of what an Imperial Bao Zhong should be: elegant, hand-rolled leaves and a cup that produces a bright-yellow green liquor with a silky texture. Floral notes are complimented by a satisfying and smooth mouth-feel with a long finish.  Yet the most unique feature of this incredible tea is its forgiving and full-bodied nature, which makes the Imperial Bao Zhong a great tea for those craving it's stunningly refined taste.

1 of 5 POOR SERVICE January 9, 2017
Reviewer: Jon Glazier from Los Angeles, CA United States  
Web site said shipping was free, but I was unable to complete order without choosing a shipping method that was not free. I wrote to you the day after placing the order, but YOU DID NOT REPLY.

5 of 5 My favorite tea! December 30, 2015
Reviewer: Roberta Lewis from Baltimore, MD United States  
This tea has remained a favorite for many years. I love the wonderful floral notes that are accentuated by brewing at a lower temperature--about 150 degrees. I look forward to Imperial Tea continuing to supply this tea.
