Oriental Beauty (Dongfang Meiren, 東方美人）Pingling Township WenHua, Taiwan. Summer 2016
The dry leaf of this delicate favorite is small, slender and twisted with lovely white tips, which gives Oriental Beauty its alternate name - Bai Hao or White Hair.
Some times compared with Darjeeling, it is an highly-oxidized Oolong with a sweet and aromatic profile and brewing temperament similar to Darjeeling. Like Darjeeling, it is best brewed with filtered, high-quality water, as it is especially sensitive to both water quality and temperature.
Lower-temperature brewing will bring out the sweet flavors and perfume of dried fruit with very light floral qualities.
