White Tip Beauty

There are many versions of story behind the elegant Oriental Beauty. Leaf hoppers used to be considered pests and they could not even sell the leaves as unprocessed teas to the market nor to co-ops, because no one would accept it. Some farmers, however, took the damaged leaves to process nonetheless because it was all they've got. The result came out surprisingly unique and merchants bought out all batches. No one really believed it and called it Bluffing Tea, which was then renamed Oriental Beauty by Queen Elizabeth II.
Oriental Beauty has an hierarchy system in terms of quality. You can see in the picture that there are three different colors. White is the tip, hence the name white tip; red is the chemical reaction caused by the leaf hoppers; black is the healthy, undamaged leaves. Three colors Oriental Beauty is rare to find in the open market. We are very lucky to be able to share this extraordinary fine tea with you.
