Also named Baihao Oolong or Eastern Beauty, Oriental Beauty is a famous tea with legendary background. It is said that the British tea merchants gave this tea to Queen Victoria as a gift. The Queen was surprised by its mellowness and fragrance and full of praise about it. So she named it “Oriental Beauty”.

The most special thing about Oriental Beauty is that the tea leaves must be bitten by the little cicada , and the saliva of insects and tea enzymes mix to produce a special aroma. It is also the source of the mellow fruit aroma and honey flavor of Oriental Beauty. So in order to make the little cicada grow well, pesticides cannot be used at all in the plant. Thus It is more precious and quite expensive.

Our oriental beauty is Taiwanese High Mountain Oolong variety (Soft Swig) transplanted in Yunnan. The degree of oxidation is higher than ordinary oolongs around 60%.

Material & process

Our Oriental Beauty is made of the tea leaves that were transplanted from Taiwan’s high mountain oolong species in Yunnan. The manufacturing process also adapts the same way of Taiwan. In terms of style, the tea is light and sweet, which is very different from oolongs in Northern Fujian. Taiwan tea’s flavor changes due to the influence of Japanese tea. Therefore, although this tea is produced in Yunnan, the actual flavor is more biased towards Taiwan Oolong.

Besides, this area is covered by virgin forest and far away from human pollution. The nature and climate make the tea in premium quality.
