Oriental Beauty

Fujian, China / Camellia sinensis
  • Double sized bai hao

One of the heavy Taiwan style oolongs, Oriental Beauty or Bai Hao has a spicy, toasty character balanced by red fruit flavors reminiscent of cherries and raspberries. Somewhere in the 70-80% oxidation range, this tea has a wonderfully long and twisted leaf with sliver tips that makes for a beautiful presentation tea. For multiple steeps, use a shorter steeping time.

Brewing Instructions: Brew 2 minutes at 200° F; 1 to 4 steepings.
