Oriental Beauty Oolong. Taiwan Summer 2018

Weight
Oriental Beauty is one of the most famous teas from Taiwan. Made from leaves that have been bitten by the jassid bug, the tea has a sweet fruity taste in a cup that is well balanced. It often recalls some of the best Darjeeling second flush teas. It is also similar to our Concubine Oolong that was inspired by Oriental Beauty.
This tea has had a year to rest, making it more flavorful and rounded.
