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

„A book written in the Tang Dynasty of China is considered one of the most important in the history of green tea. The book was written by Lu Yu and is called the "Tea Classic" or "Cha Jing". It was written between 600 and 900 AD and spoke about exactly how and where one could enjoy a fine cup of green tea.“
