What I'm buying

Origin:  Taiwan

Notes Of:  The balanced flavours are fruity, floral, with honey laced sweetness.


Known as the 'Champagne Oolong' it is the best of what Taiwan has to offer. Oriental Beauty is a white-tipped, open leafed, highly oxidised oolong tea. In the first half of June tropical insects called Jacobiasca Formosana (Jassid) flourish on the sap of the Tea bush. The Jassids suck the phloemsap from the leaves and stems, this forces the tea bush generate compounds in order to defend itself. The compounds ensure orchid-like taste whilst the removal of the sap really pushes through the flavours within the tea leaf.
