Bhao Zhong oolong

Hi :)

Recently I had a wonderful oolong at a tea shop called Bhao Zhong. I was wondering if Adagio has something similar?


Thanks,
Stephenie

Thanks for the post.

Bhao Zhong is another name for Pouchong. I don't speak Chinese, but I know all the different names for my favorite Adagio tea! :)

Here is the link:

Baozhong is the Hanyu Pinyin romanization of the Chinese name of the tea.

Pouchong and Paochung and other spellings will be other romanization systems. Ironically, they all are pronounced the same (given the same dialect/accent), just represented with different spellings.
