Baozhong tea, sometimes called pouchong, is a slightly oxidized tea, with a twisted shape. It has floral notes and is not roasted. In taste, it is actually somewhere between green tea and oolong tea, but is often classified as oolong because it is slightly oxidized.
This is a high quality tea and can be brewed many times on the same leaves. It emits a floral scent and has a rich, mild and pleasant taste. In addition, the tea has a good reputation for its good aftertaste.
Oolong tea is semi-oxidized. This happens by the leaves being pounded, preferably in a bamboo drum, and fried in repetitive exercises over a period of time until the desired oxidation is achieved. Oxidation of oolong can vary from 10 to 90%. The production of oolong is complicated and the tea is able to hold a complexity of taste and aroma beyond what white, green or yellow tea can.
An organic product is produced in a way that takes the environment into account by not using chemical and synthetic pesticides. It's good for the planet, but also for the tea, the farmer and you. By buying organic teas, you support healthy and long-term tea production.
We are proud to be the largest Norwegian brand importer of organic tea. To be approved by Debio and use the definition Organic, not only must the ingredients be certified organic, but our own plant must also be certified by Debio and controlled by Mattsilynet.
In addition to import controls from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, we go beyond the requirements by also taking random samples for pesticides/pesticides and other pollutants.
It is important that tea is stored protected from air and light. That's why we sell all our teas packed in tight aluminum bags with a zip lock.
