Description:

"Bao Hong" tea is from Yi Liang county of Yunnan. It's leaf is quite small and it carries a high level of aroma. The leaves are always picked when very small and fresh during a two hour window of time in the early morning of early March. The aroma is intense and fresh. It was first grown in the Tang Dynasty (A.D. 618-907) at the same time a Buddhist Monastery was built on Bao Hong Mountain. The original tea plant was brought by a visiting monk from Fujian. This tea has been growing on Bao Hong Mountain since that time (over 1200 years ago).

Yi Liang county has a very moderate climate with a mean daily temperature of 16.3 degrees celsius, and an average yearly rainfall of about 950 centimeters. The Bao Hong Mountain tea garden is an average of 1550-1630 meters above sea level, where it is often shrouded in mist diffusing the sunlight just enough to create a perfect light balance. Bao Hong mountain is remote area of Yunnan where the tea plants enjoy a natural un-adulterated environment.

The tea itself is full and plump but small. It has a high level of fragrance and the tea soup is thick and awash with the little hairs that grow on the tea leaves.

Comparable in many aspects to a Dragon Well, but unique in its own right.

Taste of grass and alpine conifers essential oils

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

Leaves are flat and contain hairy buds. Steamed dry leaves smells fruity and sweet.
Infusion’s color is bright yellow-green. The taste is really special. Immediately you will enjoy the taste of grass and essential oils of alpine conifers. It has a very specific aroma. The aroma reminds of conifers such as cypress, thuja and it is very intense, rich, spicy, grassy and slightly sweet. I would not compare this tea with Dragon Well. I see a similarity only in leaves processing. The tea has truly a unique flavor.


I recommend cooler water and longer times. 65 °C - 60s/30/40/60/90/120

„The container in which the tea is steeped or teapot should also be warmed beforehand so that the tea does not immediately cool down.“

Quotes

„Yunnan Provincial Government has stipulated that for tea to qualify as Pu er it must be:

i) of the Broad Leaf variety (Sinensis Assamica)
ii) grown in the Lancang (Mekong) River region
iii) sun dried. The third point is important as there is much tea grown in the Lancang River area that is not sun dried.

There are also increasing amounts of Small Leaf Variety (Xiao Ye Zhong /小叶种) being grown in the Lancang River area.“
