This Oriental Beauty Oolong is a lovely floral, honey, and orchid-flavored roasted oolong tea from Taiwan. It is traditionally known as dongfang meiren or baihao, among other Chinese names. Oriental Beauty is one of the more heavily oxidized oolong varieties.
This oxidation is part of what produces Oriental Beauty's fruity notes, and thus the tea is also sometimes referred to as mi xiang, or “honey fragrance” for its amazing flavor and aroma.
Oolong is a unique, age-old tea from China and Taiwan that is neither green nor black. Rather, oolong is allowed to partially oxidize, a process which gives the tea much of its characteristic taste, color, and aroma.
This partial oxidation is also what sets different oolongs apart from one another, as oxidation levels can range from 8% to 80% depending on the production style of the tea master. As such, each distinct kind of oolong is wildly unique and offers its own unique character and flavor profile. Experiencing the different varieties is a real pleasure.
Oolong tea also has many health benefits, and may even help boost metabolism and lower stress.
