The new 2014 Premium OB is back! There is a good reason why we ran out of that tea in 2013: it is a very satisfying tea which delivers on all counts, including value. If you’ve liked our previous L-242, you will be reassuringly in familiar terrain. When pouring freshly boiled water over our Premium Oriental Beauty Tea, one will immediately recognize the compelling exuberant aroma of citrus fruits and muscat grapes that is characteristic of a good Beauty tea. The cupping will not disappoint either, as the velvety texture warms the palate and reveals the hint of spiciness that makes this tea a perfect accompaniment to cakes and sweets. The local name of Bai Hao best describes one of its characteristic features: the presence of a white furry tip accompanied by the 2 following leaves which are carefully picked in the summer time. Oriental Beauty is a summer tea as the grower hopes his crop will receive the visit of small green leaf hoppers that will nibble the leaves and leave their characteristic contribution to the taste of this tea: a wonderfully sweet honey finish that is quite distinctive and pleasant. A deep oxidation of around 75% confers a wonderful fruitiness to the liqueur followed by a long controlled drying sequence that lightly bakes the leaves and helps to blend in and seal all the expressive characteristics of this tea.
