My insider tea club selection came yesterday! Woohoo! I was so, so, so, so, so pleased to see that it was an Oriental Beauty Oolong! I had a very fine one at Radiance Tea House in NYC and it has loomed so large in my imagination that I have never purchased another, in fear of it not living up to The Oriental Beauty In My Mind. I’ve been craving one, though, as I read some of your tasting notes.

This one is glorious. Sweet, sweet, sweet but not light. Or roasty. Or dark. Peaches and honey and tea, I’d say. Like many oolongs in my experience, I’m loving the second steep better than the first. The little card that came with it says 6 steeps are possible, and I’d like to see if I can take GM up on that!

I also remembered that the Oriental Beauty I had at Radiance had the two leaves and a bud attached in many of the leaves. I went digging around in my leaves and WOW – SO many attached leaves and buds!

I even took a photo when I experienced it in 2010: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jackiemania/4410474721/in/set-72157623565672780

My brew basket is full of these!

I’ve included some in my selections for Tea Sipper’s Traveling Tea Box, so some of you lucky ducks will get to try it, too!

I grabbed enough for a cups-worth before passing the rest along in the Traveling Tea Box. This one lives up to it’s name…Beautiful! It’s gentle and mouth watering and somewhat citrusy – naturally! This is very nice! Glad I was able to try it!
