From Floating Leaves Tea


The rinsed leaves of this 2016 Oriental Beauty are loaded with honey fragrance. Its broth is medium bodied towards full with a nice touch of viscosity. Its honey taste lasts throughout all the infusions with a sweet rose-like flavor. This tea is brighter and more floral than the 2017 OB. If you like to drink grandpa style, consider the 2017 version.
This 2016 Oriental Beauty is harvested in PingLin in early June with QinXin Oolong varietal.

I am always impressed by teas such silver needle and this Oriental beauty that drastically depart from what I grew up thinking how tea tasted. Early on there is a definite floral almost Roses flavor to the tea. It reminded me of This one blend of black tea my friend bought from England that was blended with rose.

I drank this along with the 2017 Oriental Beauty.

The 2016 is more fruity, tasting of green grapes and pears along with floral notes. The later infusions get honey and woodsy. It is best gongfu style as you can taste the more delicate fruity notes.
