Yunnan Wild Arbor Oriental Beauty
Oriental Beauty is originally a tea from Taiwan, but the many Taiwanese growers and tea masters have settled in Yunnan creating their own re-interpretations of Taiwanese teas using both Yunnan local varietals and high-altitude growing conditions. This tea was made in the style of a Taiwanese “Oriental Beauty” (aka 东方美人), but using large-leaf varietal wild arbor tea leaves from Wu Liang mountain. It is largely dark and coarse leaves with just enough silver tips to bring fruitiness to the darker sweet and thick taste. Being a Yunnan varietal this tea can be infused many many times. It will also keep for 2 or 3 years like Yunnan Black tea (云南红茶), developing subtle nuances with time.
