This JinXuan BaoZhong, is a lightly fermented Wulong tea, so much so it is often confused with being a Green tea. However, after steeping, it becomes extremely clear that this very floral tea with a sweet scent of honeydew melon is more complex than a Green tea. Soothing to the throat, cooling for the body, and clarifying for the mind, this tea has a clean, enlivening energy. The product picture shows withered JinXuan leaves, half-made Baozhong, after having been fired once or twice.
