On the darker side of the tea spectrum, our Asian Beauty is a smooth, sweet and fragrant Oolong - and Taiwan's most famous "bug-bitten" tea.  A very small (and cute) leaf hopper nibbles on these leaves in mid-Summer causing the leaves to naturally acquire a character resembling honey and cinnamon.

More info on Taiwan's leaf-hopper bitten teas can be found HERE

fyi,This tea is also known as Oriental Beauty, Dong Fang Mei Ren and Baihao. 

Note for the future:  This past Summer my favorite Taiwanese tea friend took me to visit a fifth generation family farm at the highest elevations of Pinglin.  The 90yo patriarch of the family still oversees the production of some amazing organic Asian Beauty.  The president even visited one day back in the 50's.  We will be offering it to you by next summer.  Until then, this lot from Xinzhu is quite good. The pictures below are of the Pinglin farm.
