drank Oriental Beauty by Ten Ren
267 tasting notes

I actually almost misidentified this as not being by Ten Ren, because it’s more prominently labeled as being from “Midori & Tea” . I am also going to admit that I bought this for the gorgeous tin that it’s in. I’ve actually had a whole bunch of teas labeled Oriental Beauty Tea that weren’t oolong as this is. I think my favorite was a Pu-ehr by Life Rising. This is mild and generally a good tea. It’s a good thing I’m enjoying it as much as I am, because I now have a lot of it. Tastes a lot gentler than your average Chinese restaurant oolong. Beauty enhancing effects? Unverified.
(I forgot to set the timer and steeped this a bit long. No harm done.)
