About this tea

This PauTsiong Tea crafted with cultivar CuiYu performs impressively with its abundant fragrance; slight astringency may garnish the finishing of this tea and intrigues the mouth-watering sensation. The tea liquid is light-bodied with a mild crispy tone; layered with floral flavors. A real treasure of spring.

The crafting technique of PauTsiong Tea was first developed and promoted by two tea makers, Wei Jing-Shi 魏靜時 and Wang Shui-Jin 王水錦, in 1912's Formosa Taiwan, thus letting the tea that could "capture the floral fragrance without being scented“ earns its position in the tea world ever since.

Crafting an exquisite specialty tea starts with the corresponding plucking standard, and the famous „One-Bud-Two-Leaves“ standard is not meant for every tea, especially not for a classic PauTsiong.

The corresponding plucking for a specialty Taiwanese PauTsiong should be:
When the current seasonal flush has just developed into one bud with five to six leaves on the stem; and the apical tea shoot has opened from its natural curled-up form, pluck the shortly unfold tea shoot and the two to three following young leaves. The leaves should still be very tender, plump, and in light minty-green color. Before the tea crafting, tea makers
must carefully guard the plucked fresh leaves against stacking.
