This tea has a lot of names: Peng Feng, Bai Hao Wu Long, Formosa Beauty, Taiwanese Butterfly. Oriental Beauty was called “tea cake” and “champagne tea” for its extraordinary fruit honey sweet and spicy flavour, naturally detected in manufacturing due to special insects, green leaf hoppers, who bites tea leaves round and start the oxidation process right on a plant. Once the British Queen tasted this tea at the London international exhibition and claimed: “Oriental Beauty!” This nickname stuck, as well as the tea in the British Royal Court, which traditionally buy the best tea of such variety for domestic needs.
The Taiwanese themselves consider Dong Fang Mei Ren the best tea of their home. It is produced only organically and the total amount of a crop is just 30 tonnes. The most expensive raw is taken for manufacturing of Oriental Beauty tea – the young half blossomed shoot with the big plump bud. These buds contain the largest number of essential oils and tea alkaloids. Just by the presence of buds, covered with white tips, such tea was named as Bai Hao Wu Long (White Tips Oolong). The content of tips in Oriental Beauty tea is the highest. In ordinary oolong there are up to 1 thousand tips per catty (600 g), but in this case there are 3-4 thousand tips per catty. All the raw is picked by hand exclusively. It is hard to buy the authentic Oriental Beauty tea. In the main, there are less expensive and not so much interested mainland replicas on the market. “Formosa Taiwan Tea” is proud to propose you Dong Fang Mei Ren, made by one of the best Tea Maker of the island.

If you put the tea in a previously warmed teapot, it would disclose the flavour to the limit. You can brew such tea several times. Depending on how long is the steeping, this tea may be steeped from five to twenty times in a traditional tea drinking with repeated pouring. The tea will show itself good in a traditional tea ceremony Gongfu Cha.
