    Very fine Oolong

    Oriental Beauty is an excellent Oolong tea which I have not previously purchased. If anything it is even finer than the Li Shan and Shanlinxi teas from Taiwan I very much enjoy drinking.

    A harmony of notes

    Soft apple and pear like notes with woody and green touches. Very pleasant and smooth. Tricky to flatter as I was so moved by the Phoenix honey orchid. This is a good tea but this Phoenix excelled in the play of fruit and woody notes.
