Pouchong, a slightly oxidized Oolong tea started in Qing Dynasty. As a tribute, this special Oolong was wrapped into a square-shaped package by two pieces of square writing paper to avoid the leak of the tea fragrance on its way to Emperor Guangxu, who named this tea Pouchong. Pou means wrap, Chong means variety The fragrance of Pouchong tea reminds you of a serene orchid flower in the valley: elegant, refined, quietly blooming with light floral fragrance. Tea liquor is golden in color, clear and transparent, reflecting its appealing inner beauty.
