Go ahead, search the world—you won’t find another tea quite like Oriental Beauty, the luxurious, highly prized oolong tea so exquisite that it made its way from Taiwan to Queen Elizabeth II, who gave it its name. Processed entirely by hand, Oriental Beauty is produced only once a year, during summer. Our Oriental Beauty grows in the Ping Ling area of Northern Taiwan, known for its breathtaking scenery. The perpetual mild climate and rolling fog makes the growing environment truly unique.
Tea leaves are a gorgeous (if we do say so ourselves) mix of green, white, yellow, red, and brown—the colors of nature itself. Sixty percent oxidized, the flavor is one of a kind, both strong and mellow, with a fruity taste and subtle honeyed notes. Its naturally sweet taste is invigorating, like stepping into the wild. Oriental Beauty turns amber-red when infused.
