Oriental Beauty is an exceptionally fine Taiwanese oolong tea, exotically fragranced, with notes of honey, lilac and sandalwood. The handpicked leaves are heavily oxidised to obtain the rich deep autumnal colours interspersed with the white buds.


The story behind this delicious tea is that a Taiwanese tea grower thought his tea was spoiled by leafhopper insects after they had bitten the tea leaves. Not wanting to waste the harvest, the farmer plucked the leaves and later realised that the tea flavour had transformed to a smoother, sweeter style. The tea plant in fact released chemicals in response to the bug bite. This, along with meticulously controlled oxidisation, is what makes this tea flavour so striking and aromatic. 


High quality Oriental Beauty is distinguished by its exotic fragrance, with notes of honey, lilac and sandalwood.
