One hour drive away from the bustling city of Taipei, there’s Pinglin, a village famous for its Baozhong production. Baozhong, is also named Pouchong, which literally means “wrapped”, referring to the traditional way of wrapping the leaves in paper during the drying process. The Baozhong we selected from you is made by our young farmer, Aka, who works together with his brother and parents in their family-owned farm. When we visited Aka, we were surprised by his innovative approach of producing and brewing the tea. You should definitely try this one on cold brew, you will be surprised.
