Oriental Beauty Oolong Tea is a variety of Jinxuan cultivar leaves grown on Mount Dahei, a national forest reservation in Yunnan Province, a famous tea region in China’s beautiful southwest. This tea is quite unique in that early in the season, leaf hoppers arrive at the tea garden, during a 3 week time frame, they will partially chew the leaves allowing it to oxidize while still growing to make Oriental Beauty.
The oxidization rate of Oriental Beauty is more than 60%, which is achieved through a long period of cool temperature, complicated withering and leaf processing. Followed by a triple roasting of the leaves, which draws out the sweet honey-like notes and a complex depth of flavor. These natural climate conditions, along with the traditional withering process, creates the unique charm and flavor profile of the honey and muscatel notes in this tea.
Once steeped, Oriental Beauty Oolong offers a crystal clear golden amber tea liquor, you will appreciate the flecks of pale green leaf and whole leaves capturing the high quality of the leaf. It releases a rich floral and muscatel aroma. Its flavor is rich, bold, sweet, and long-lasting - just what is desired in a high-quality Oriental Beauty Oolong tea.
