Oriental Beauty and is a very unique and wonderful oolong tea. Harvested during the summer in a biological* tea farm in Taiwan. Unlike most oolong the Oriental Beauty leaves are highly oxidized before being baked. The leaf coloration has dark red to brown tones with white hairs. It’s taste is very smooth, fruity with notes of apricot, quince, honeyed bergamot, and a slight cocoa finish. A very enjoyable tea to drink.
Oriental Beauty originated in Taiwan and is also know as Eastern Beauty.
*Grown without synthetic chemical substances and without genetically engineered seeds. The farm is certified and compliant with Taiwan certified agricultural standards for biological farming.

John S –
The best Oriental Beauty tea I’ve tasted. Easy to brew – a very forgiving tea. No bitterness. Very smooth. I brew mine “Chinese-style” in a small teapot or gaiwan. Water almost boiling but not quite. I use 2 teaspoons dry tea in an 8 oz. teapot for a minute or two. I’ve experimented with different brewing parameters and the tea never disappoints.
