do you usually make other oolongs that way or this tea is special? (the 195F temp, and longer steeps) thxbambooforest wrote:I like making bao zhong at 1 gram/1 oz. I steep at around 195F.
1st steep: 2 minutes
2nd steep: 2.30
3rd steep: 3 minutes (or more).
With the bao zhong I have on hand, this created the best flavor.
I know many like to use higher leaf per oz for bao zhong, but I didn't find that improved the flavor for my palate for the bao zhong I had which is not low grade.
I don't rinse when I steep like this.
Owes its flavors to oxidation levels between green & black tea.
