Now drinking a fantastic Baozhong from Floating Leaves Tea. this tea had gone stale so I just refreshed it in my rice cooker with great results. (first time with that, yippee)
Second Place Baozhong - won 2nd place in the semi-anual contest in the famous Pinglin wenshan growing region.
As a side note the first place this season is not as good to my taste, I prefer this one. I'm so lucky to have access to this tea, every harvest season I can go into Floating Leaves and sample the three top baozhongs from that contest, plus they usually have a 'farmers choice' that is more traditional (and totally my favorite every time except this season)
rolling boil (fiji) - 3/4 dry leaves in gaiwan - flash rinse - 10, 15, 25, 30 ...
On 5th brew, this tea is still going strong. What fantastic aroma, mouth feel and crazy long aftertaste/feel. nothing like a good wenshan baozhong!
omg, 8th brewing and still special. I so wish I could share this with all of you...
[edit #3] 12th+ brew, starting to fade, but still deeeelicious. only reason I'm stopping here is a package from Hou De just arrived....
