Oriental Beauty Oolong Tea

Sale price Price $18.00 Regular price Unit price  per 

The jewel in the crown of Taiwanese oolongs, Oriental Beauty is a heavily oxidized tea whose unique, honey-like sweetness and mellow, fruity aroma is the result of allowing the tea jassid—a common pest—to feed on the leaves, stimulating the plant’s production of chemical compounds. It is also referred to as a white-tip oolong, after the colour the edges of the leaves turn in the process. This wholly-handpicked tea is our bestseller and makes the perfect gift for oolong initiates and connoisseurs alike!
