Oriental Beauty is Taiwan’s most famous tea and has many English names. A rare extraordinary tea, also known as Imperial Formosa Oolong, Champagne Oolong, and White Tip Oolong. Bai Hao is the traditional Taiwanese name meaning “white tipped”.
The first thing you’ll notice about this tea is the striking variety of colors in the dried leaf. This is due to the way the oolong tea is produced. You’ll also notice tiny white hairs from the bud leaf. It’s extraordinary.
Bai Hao is one of my favorite oolongs. I love the aroma of the dried leaf. It has a natural sweet honey and woody fragrance with a slight scent of cocoa.
