Harvested only 7 Days of the Year
Dong Fang Mei Ren is the local name for Eastern Beauty, a style of uniquely oxidized oolong tea developed in the 19th century in the low elevation microclimates of Northern Taiwan. This tea, from among the most cherished of lots made just 10 days a year in early June, has nuances of honey and pit fruit.
Tasting Notes: Succulent with vivid aromas of tropical flowers, orange blossom honey and pit fruits
Ingredients: Oolong tea.
Additional Info: Eastern Beauty is one of our most unique offerings in that the highest qualities will ripen over time. This tea will become richer and smoother in texture, and develop deeper stone fruit flavor as it ages. We recommend storing this tea in one of our Tea Storage Tins to enjoy it throughout the next 1–2 years.
Oolong tea artisans, like boutique winemakers, bring forth the appellation characters of their teas through traditional crafting techniques. Each oolong tea's distinctive style reflects its place of origin, vintage and tea bush cultivar.
