"It has both black and oolong flavors with a great natural sweetness resembling dried fruit and Cinnamon spiciness."

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 is a good tea to put in the tea chest and let it age a while as it improves with age.
