Oriental BeautyFloating Leaves Tea
Oriental Beauty is an intentionally bug bitten, open leaf oolong created in Taiwan. It is bitten by a small green leaf-hopper, 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.
Broth is juicy and sweet. The aroma has notes of honey, of course, and also a kind of muscatel fruitiness. Texture is round and soft in the mouth. It was just shipped in from Taiwan, so give it a couple of weeks to acclimate.
