Oriental Beauty Oolong Tea

东方美人乌龙茶

The Origin Story
Our Oriental Beauty is highly aromatic with notes of apple, grape and fragrant wood. The beautifully shaped, white tipped leaf is testament to its carefully controlled oxidisation, keeping the leaf whole and intact. With its iconic tart sweetness, Oriental Beauty is a great tea for the afternoon and pairs well with light pastries.
Taiwan - Hsinchu

Hsinchu is home to excellent oolongs, grown at relatively low altitude

Situated at the north-east of the island, Hsinchu county ranges from coastal plains to mountaineous inland terrain. Growing on the foothills around 500m in elevation is one of Taiwan's tea treasures, Oriental Beauty Oolong. Production is centred around Beipu town and traditionally takes place in summer.

    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.
