After the leaves sprout, they are immediately plucked and withered in natural sunlight. They are then gently rolled sideways and lightly roasted, this process gives Baozhong its distinctive twisted appearance. The leaves are traditionally wrapped in paper before they are roasted which is where Baozhong gets its name from. In Chinese the word 'wrap' is "bao" or 包 and 'zhong' or 種 simply means 'type' - so translated it means "the wrapped type."
Baozhong or as it is known in the west, Pouchong Oolong is a very lightly oxidized Oolong tea. Is is usually oxidized between 5-20% and for this reason has very similar characteristics to a green tea. However, Baozhong is much sweeter and contains more floral aromas and notes of ripe melon.
