White Tip Beauty
The elegant Oriental Beauty tea has a fascinating story behind its creation. Leaf hoppers, once seen as pests, used to render tea leaves unsellable in the market. Despite this, some farmers still processed the damaged leaves, leading to the creation of a surprisingly unique tea that caught the attention of merchants. Initially referred to as "Bluffing Tea," it was later renamed "Oriental Beauty" by Queen Elizabeth II.
Oriental Beauty tea has a hierarchy system based on quality, with three different colors visible in the tea leaves: white for the tip, red for the chemical reaction caused by the leaf hoppers, and black for the healthy, undamaged leaves. The rare occurrence of all three colors in the open market makes it a special find, and we feel fortunate to be able to share this extraordinary tea with you.
Apart from its unique flavor profile, Oriental Beauty tea is also known for its health benefits, containing more than hundreds of nutritious soluble elements besides theaflavin. With notes of honey and sweet ripe fruit, this tea is a treat for the senses and a delightful addition to any tea lover's collection.
