This very gentle, smooth, sweet, light, elegant, incredibly fragrant pesticide-free tea is grown by an award-winning Taiwanese farmer. His farm is unusual because it is located on a pristine island in the middle of a drinking reservoir. In this area, pesticide use is forbidden.
This bao zhong is picked only in the Spring, during a 4-6 week period. Only 10-15 kilograms are picked a day. Please see our Bao Zhong Slideshow to view his farm.

Place 1 tablespoon (5g) tea in the teapot.
Add *195 degree F (90 C) water to the teapot to awaken the tea. Immediately pour out and discard the water. Finally, add water and brew 45-60 seconds.
