The Wen Shan Bao Zhong is an oolong tea from Taiwan and is also called blue-green tea. This tea comes from an exclusive Taiwan tea garden in the Pinglin District. Here it is grown according to traditional methods and especially selected by Madame Tseng for De Eenhoorn. Wen Shan is the name of a high mountain in this area.
An oolong is a half fermented tea. This plant has large dark green leaves. After the harvest, the leaves are spread out in the sun to dry, so that they can wither. They are regularly shaken and rolled by hand, to break the edges. Oxidation will take place at these spots. As soon as the edges of the leaves turn red, the leaves are cooked for fifteen minutes in a pan on the fire, which stops the fermentation process and creates this beautiful oolong tea.
