From TheTea

Origin: Emei area, Hsinchu, Taiwan

Harvest/Vintage: June 2019

Tea Varietal: Qing Xin Da Pan

This Oriental Beauty is quite different than 2020 Competition Grade Miaoli Oriental Beauty oolong cause it brings much more intensive citrus like aromas: orange peel, mango, passion fruit. It has also very pleasant spiciness mixed with honey nuances.

Looking at the leaves you can se the oxidation is quite strong. Like traditional Oriental Beauty should be.

Liquor is light-medium bodied but your room will filled with excellent aromas during whole tea session.

This is a comforting and balanced tea with hints of greatness. It lasts for a good 12 infusions at 5g in a 100ml gaiwan. Despite being almost 3 years old now, it feels very fresh and zesty.

The aroma is sweet, nutty and comforting with a distinctive cooling floral character, a bit like lilacs. The taste is somehow fresh with being vegetal at all. It has a mild floral sweetness and peatiness. There are also notes of grapevine, citrus, plant roots and limestone. I also like the silky texture and heady qi. The aftertaste is warming and protracted with notes of butter, spices, saffron and nectar.
