Flavor Profile

Preserved plum, hibiscus, and rosehip

Aged Oolong tea · high oxidation

Oriental Beauty Oolong was among the most precious teas in 20th century Taiwan. In this 90's vintage, we find that the signature notes of rose and citrus have matured into a fuller palate.

Taste daylily, blossom honey, and preserved plum as aromas of rosehip waft out of the teacup.

We imagine walking softly through a rain-soaked field as we drink this tea, noticing the wildflowers and berries as we move towards a barn for a brief respite before continuing on.
