Made by one of our favorite tea masters in Pinglin, this BaoZhong is deep, rich, sweet and full. Processed in the old style with all the perfections and imperfections intact, this is a connoisseur's tea. Usually sold out a year in advance, we were able to sneak in and get some of this wonderful tea the week after it was produced. A staff favorite!
**This tea is produced in very small amounts. It is one of the very few teas we have that are partially picked truly by hand.**
