hsinchu oriental beauty

Beautiful leaves of white, green, yellow, red and brown make up this top grade Formosa Oriental Beauty oolong from Hsinchu County, in northwestern Taiwan.

Our Hsinchu Oriental Beauty bears a clean mouthfeel that gently reveals each nuance like an unfolding blossom, and a slight mineral finish.
