Hsinchu, Miaoli Country, Taiwan

Oriental Beauty is special—the layers of sweetness and flavor have to be experienced, and they have forever changed the way we view tea. Oriental Beauty can only be made with the Chinsing Dah Pan cultivar. These bushes must be left pesticide-free and then allowed to be attacked by tiny insects that nibble on the edges of the leaf, causing bruising and oxidation. This makes the trees in that field fight harder to protect their leaves and produces an amazing flavor that can't be replicated.
