2018 Oriental BeautyFloating Leaves Tea
Honey, Grapes, Rose
Oriental Beauty is a intentionally bug bitten, open leaf oolong created in Taiwan. It is bitten by a small green leafhopper, and the bite-wound causes a sweetness in the leaf. Then the young leaves are plucked by hand and oxidized rather heavily to coax out the natural sweetness in the tea. The characteristic of this tea is it's strong honey aroma and sweet taste.
Fragrant and sweet like honey, this oolong is medium to light bodied. The bouquet of this particular harvest has notes of grapes and a rose fragrance. The broth is more bright and fragrant compared to last season's Oriental Beauty.
