Oriental Beauty

from 3.87

Oxidation: 60%
Origins: Emei Township, Xinzu County
Country: Taiwan
Baking Level: None
Elevation: 400 Meters
Harvest: Summer 2015

This might be the best Oriental Beauty you've ever had.  Well balance, hits all the right notes.  Just an absolutely fantastic tea.  Very fruity: ripe berries, cherries, nectarine, citrus grape. Tons of depth here. This isn’t your normal “muscatel”, there’s so much more to it. There’s also a strong, bright note of honey and mild floral tone. Really outstanding!  Reminds of the very high quality and expensive modern versions of oriental beauty that are less oxidized, however this carries that structure of the darker style - which is more satisfying. There’s a definitely a nectar aroma, along with intense fruit and honey characters.
 
Initial Steeps:
Intense honey, intense floral, intense fruit! Strongly and beautifully perfumed. The brew also emanates the honey and perfumed fragrance. The body of the brew is thick, and the fragrance lingers in the mouth for quite some time. This is a joy to drink.

Later Steeps:
This aroma is just incredible. It shows absolutely no sign of backing down either. The aromatic character and flavor are just superb. Strong honey aroma on the brew, super beautiful fruited honey flavours.  Peaches drizzled with honey. There’s no sign of stopping after this extended steep. This tea has an unstoppable aroma.  The flavor is absolutely wonderful too. It has many of the top note aromatics that is expected from a modern-style lower oxidation tea, but with the fullness, smoothness, and structure of a classical oriental beauty. Just gorgeous.
