Wenshan Baozhong

by Libertatis » Dec 6th 05 5:08 am

Hello,

Is anyone here familiar with Wenshan Baozhong tea? i purchased some a while back and will soon run out. Is the pouchong tea that adagio sells similar? For those who do not know Wenshan Baozhong is a very delicate oolong from Taiwan, and i need more! (or something comparable!) Thanks in advance!

Ok I'm sorry, this has nothing to do with your post, because I don't have an answer for you. I just had to let you know that I love your username. Because I'm studying for my latin final tomorrow... and I saw your name and went "Libertatis?!?! Libertas libertatis libertati libertatem libertate libertates libertatum libertatibus libertes libertatibus!"

*sigh*

Good luck on your test! I am glad to hear you are studying latin. I am currently studying ancient greek, but latin is next on my list!

I too am a little curious what kind of baozhong Adagio sells. I'm not very experienced with baozhong, except for spending an evening talking tea and philosophy in Taiwan (Maokong) while I was living there.

I don't really know if I like baozhong that much, but I'm an oolong fan and I will probably pick up a sample with my next order. :)

Wenshan Baozhong simply refers to a Pouchong (or "Baozhong") grown on the Wen Shan mountain area of Taiwan. While ours is indeed grown in this region, there is some variance among these teas in terms of quality and taste. Unfortunately, I can't give you a better answer other than our Pouchong is definitely worth a try!

Hope this helps,

Liberatis means Liberty/Freedom. for example "Vigilantis pretium Liberatis" means "Vigilance is the price of Freedom"

No prob!

Please settle a bet....who's your hot avatar? Ilya says it looks like Jessica Alba. While i can't put my finger on it, I know he's wrong.

Chris, I am going to laugh at you if Libertatis is a girl and the avatar is a picture of herself. Laugh REALLY hard.

Pete, see what science does to your brain? You can't even recognize cognates! Teehee...

Didn't think of that.... I just assumed that (besides you and I teaspoon) no one else uses their real face. Oh yeah, and Mike B.. That's what a lack of Petit Threes will do to a person.

If it is the "real you" Libby, sorry to embarass you.

Yes you guessed right teaspoon that I'm currently using a picture of myself as my avatar.
