From Bollands

Unique blend of rare white leaf tips from Taiwan coupled with Oolong Extra Toppiest, a very carefully produced Taiwanes fine tea, to create a beautiful and delicate tea with a lovely Formosa character. Legend has it that Queen Victoria, when presented with Oolong Extra Toppiest by a British tea merchant, only knowing that the tea was from the far East, called it ’Oriental Beauty”, which has been its common name ever since.

Cold brew, though it’s not the best weather for it. I left it steeping for much longer than I originally intended, so it’s not quite as sweet and delicate as I’d hoped. It is still very tasty though, and quite different to the profile I get from this one when it’s hot. It’s thick with fruity notes, mostly stonefruits, with flowery florals which complement the fruitiness well. Peach, plum, papaya, lychee, white grape, rose, honeysuckle and gardenia all meld together with a rocky mineral backbone which I suspect is more noticeable because of the almost 24 hour steep I gave this. With a pinch of soft brown sugar, this is delicious. Bumping my rating up a couple of points from 75, because I appreciate when a nice tea makes a good cold brew as well as hot. We love a dual purpose!

Your note reminded me I’ve had an herbal tea cold-brewing for 3 days. Whoops.
