Savoring Your Experience:
Oriental Beauty's leaves are, well, beautiful! Their long, twisted forms range from white "tips" (immature leaves) to large, dark green leaves. They brew into a silky-smooth drink that slides around the palate like honey.
Our Oriental Beauty oolong is naturally sweet on its own. Honey notes dominate in its aroma and taste, and a fruity sweetness lingers in the finish.
Like Darjeeling Second Flush Black Tea, its leaves were irresistible to a certain kind of insect. When conditions are favorable, the insects arrive in summertime and nibble on the leaves, causing them to oxidize before they were harvested. This oxidation helps the leaves develop uniquely sweet, fruity flavors that many tea connoisseurs adore.
Always brew Oriental Beauty tea with fresh water, just shy of boiling. This nuanced tea evolves over multiple steepings, so be sure to brew it multiple times in one session.
