From Objective Tea

Origin: Jing Mai, Yunnan, China
Cultivar:Dong Fang Mei Ren
Cultivated: Within Last 6 Months

Dong Fang Mei Ren, also known as Oriental Beauty, our Loose Black Tea is the heaviest, smokiest tea in the entire ObjectiveTea catalogue. Black tea has a rich history, first consumed for medicinal purposes in Ancient China. Black tea is still a favorite in most regions of China for stomach-settling and spirit-soothing. Our specific vintage hails from the beautiful, tea-rich mountains of Yunnan, China, and is laced with hints of bittersweet chocolate, and the ghostly sweetness of rasin sugar.

To Brew: Cover the leaves in boiling water (these hardy leaves call for the higher temperature of a full boil), and let steep for 75 seconds. The second brew should steep for 60 seconds. Add five seconds for each successive brewing. Out top of the line Black Tea is good for approximately eight full infusions, and is guaranteed to leave you ready for a second batch.

Post-Steep Additives: German rock sugar, didn’t change the tea much

This tea is a good medium black, but nothing unique pulls it out as a “must-buy” or “wow” drink.
