This hand-picked oriental beauty is special because its processed of oxidation relies a lot on the green leafhopper. These tea green leafhoppers love to bite into the leaf. The tiny bites don't necessarily cause bite holes. Instead, the plant actually releases a natural sweetness enzyme to attract predators of the leafhopper. 

As a result of the higher oxidation, this oolong tastes between an oolong and a black tea. You'll get the floral and nutty flavor, and also a rounder, honey after-taste similar to a black tea. Overall a nice relaxing tea to have after meals. 


 

Origin: Nantou, Taiwan

Notes: Floral, Malty, Honey

Exactly what I was looking for! Delicious, authentic Asian tea!

I went to every international market in town looking for loose leaf Oriental Beauty tea because I tried it at a (now closed) tea shop and couldn't find it again. I was so thrilled that Tea and Whisk had it and even suggested to me similar teas. I've been brewing it often and enjoying it immensely! I'll be back for more. THANK YOU!
