From Taiwan Tea Crafts

This year we are introducing a new grade in our OB selection: the Superior. The grading system practiced in the Northern area where this tea is grown is not unfamiliar with the grading practiced in former British colonies. It is very much based on the general appearance of the leaves, not so much on the resulting pleasure of drinking the tea, we think. In the end, after tasting it we couldn’t resist bringing this new grade in! We agree that it may not have the same percentage of silver tips or a few uneven leaves through the Lot, but it tastes like a Premium grade at a cheaper price… that’s what everybody likes! The local name of Bai Hao best describes one of its characteristic features: the presence of a white furry tip accompanied by the 2 following leaves which are carefully picked in the summer time. Oriental Beauty is a summer tea as the grower must wait until his crop has received the visit of small green leaf hoppers that will nibble the leaves and leave their characteristic contribution to the taste of this tea: a wonderfully sweet honey finish that is quite distinctive and pleasant. Even if 2014 was not the best year for the little bugs, this tea packs a generous and rich aromatic palette of baked fruity sweets. When pouring freshly boiled water over our tea, one will immediately recognize the compelling exuberant aroma of citrus fruits that is the characteristic of a good Beauty tea. The cupping will not disappoint either, as the velvety texture warms the palate and reveals a wonderful fruitiness to the liqueur with hints of spiciness that makes this tea a perfect accompaniment to cakes and sweets.

Alleluia ! I finally found the time to get the package waiting for me since 6 days at the post office. I didn’t have to wait to get it … unexpected . And on the top of it the package was containing my beautiful Taiwanese teas purchased atTaiwan Tea Crafts .

So I have a series of packages pretty , colored with all the indications in Chinese and English. This is too cute.

Highly appreciated, a small handwritten note was added to my parcel and in French !

So this tea … chosen because Taiwanese and Oolong and because of being an Oriental Beauty … this is a silvery brown and almost fluffy tea.

The package says (yes , the package is talking to me ) to use boiling water . Oh yeah ? really ? Oolong … I am rather inclined to infuse at 85 ° c … well let’s be disciplined , do it .

After a dip of 6 minutes I got nice wet leaves , quite small but entire, dark brown mixed with other leaves more on the chocolate colour side. And an amber liquor , quite dark but translucent.

Taste : it is an Oriental Beauty quite serious , not at all on the sweet side , on the honey side . It has the typical taste of fruits such as apricot, plum but sugar-free or with a low sugar content.

This is extremely surprising , very good and really unexpected. As a kind of extra extra dry champagne that I did enjoy once without any sugar touch . A version of “dry” tea like we have dry wines in fact.
