On the darker side of the Oolong spectrum is our Asian Beauty, a smooth, sweet, and fragrant Oolong - and Taiwan's most famous "bug-bitten" tea. This tea is only produced in the Summer when the leaves naturally acquire notes of honey and cinnamon from the little leaf hoppers.
This Summer 2019 batch is one of the best we've had in quite a while! Enjoy.
