Oriental Beauty Supreme Oolong Tea


The Origin Story

Our Oriental Beauty tea [dongfang meiren] is highly aromatic oolong tea 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 fantastic oolong tea for the afternoon and pairs well with light pastries.

This is the most delicious Oriental Beauty we have tasted. Picked in September from Qixing Garden in Er-Mei, Hsinchu County, this tea is incredibly fragrant and sweet. The dry leaves display the classic '5 colour' characteristic of traditional Oriental Beauty, with rusty brown, matte black, caramel brown and light green leaf and downy silver tips.

Picked in Qixing Garden, Er-Mei Village, Hsinchu County.

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.
