From the Wikipedia page

Pouchong (Chinese: 包種茶; pinyin: Bāozhŏngchá; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: pau-chióng-tê) or light oolong, is a lightly fermented (oxidized) tea, twist shape, with floral notes, and usually not roasted, somewhere between green tea and what is usually considered Oolong tea (Chinese: 烏龍; pinyin: wūlóng; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: o͘-liông; literally "Black Dragon"), though often classified with the latter due to its lack of the sharper green tea flavours. It is produced mainly in Fujian, China, and in Pinglin Township near Taipei, Taiwan.

Its name in Chinese, literally "the wrapped kind", refers to a practice of wrapping the leaves in paper during the drying process that has largely been discontinued due to advancement in tea processing. At its best, Pouchong gives off a floral and melon fragrance and has a rich, mild taste.

Picking of this famous Taiwan "spring tea" (春茶) usually begins around the end of March.

Pouchong is a popular choice with producers of scented tea, with rose pouchong a particular favourite.
