Oriental Beauty (2 oz)

This is a deeply oxidized oolong from central Taiwan, originally developed to emulate Darjeeling tea, with an intense honey aroma and flavor. Before harvest, these leaves begin to wither while still on the bush because of a unique natural process: leaf hopper insects bite the edges of the leaves, causing a distinct chemical change in the plant. Oriental Beauty is prized for its resulting sweet, fruity fragrance.

This lotís sweet lychee flavor deepens through subsequent steepings; try brewing the highly oxidized leaves multiple times with water slightly cooler than boiling.

  • Start with your favorite spring or filtered water. Do a quick rinse to preheat the teaware and awaken the leaves. Use a large strainer basket to allow the leaves to open and release their flavor.
  • Temperature: 190 F Time: 2-3 minutes
    Amount: 3g / 6 oz serving = 1 tablespoon
  • Play with the amount of tea, the water temperature, and steeping time to re-steep - rely on taste, not color. Get to know the tea! Try it gong-fu style - use a lot of leaf and short steeps for multiple infusions.
