Oriental Beauty (Dongfang Meiren)Pinglin, Taiwan. Summer 2016

Regular price $20.00

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. 

Sometimes compared with Darjeeling, it is a highly-oxidized Oolong with a uniquely sweet and aromatic profile and brewing temperament similar to its Indian counterpart. Like Darjeeling, it is best brewed with filtered, high-quality water that is not scalding hot. Brewing at lower-temperature brings out the exotic sweet flavors and the perfume of dried fruits with slight floral qualities.
