From Vashon Tea Shop

Oriental Beauty is one of the most famous Taiwanese Oolongs. This tea is only produced once a year. This tea carries overtones of honey. The sweetness is the tea leaf’s response to being nibbled by microscopic summer insects. It’s a great tea to introduce to people who want to venture out of their black teas.

I prepared this tea at work in a porcelain gaiwan.

Steeping #1 (1m @ 175F/79C)
Very light, greenish-gold with a mild aroma. It’s very nutty, particularly in the back of the palate. Tastes almost like a very light charcoal-fired gaoshan oolong.

Steeping #2 (45s @ 175F/79C)
Straw shade of gold this time. Much nuttier, very pleasant and a stronger flavor than the first steeping. Tastes surprisingly like a light Da Hong Pao. The nuttiness really lingers in the back of the nostrils and soft palate after sipping. It’s a not a particularly deep or complicated flavor, but very pleasant. I find this tea superior to that I’ve purchased from TeaVivre, which is also pleasant.

Steeping #3 (45s @ 175F/79C)
Slightly darker than steeping #2. The nuttiness is a little more astringent in odor, but also slightly fainter. The flavor is still there, with no real development, but is much lighter than #2, and not worth steeping a fourth time.

The second steeping was, by far, the best.
