Formosa Bai Hao is known by many names - Oriental Beauty, White Tip Oolong, Champagne oolong, and Fancy Formosa Silver Tip, to name just a few. This heavily oxidized Taiwanese tea is one of the most prized oolongs in the world. Incredibly sweet, fruity and lush with a delicate warm spicy undertone. Striking and thought-provoking tea, perfect for multiple infusions.

Teabags

teabags
Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

Lore

A white tippy oolong of incredible complexity, Formosa Bai Hao (aka Oriental Beauty) is a heavily oxidized oolong (about 80%) that renders the leaves a beautiful reddish color following its extensive withering time. Exceptional craftsmanship is evident in the dry leaf. Infused, the tea proffers multiple infusions of a juicy fruitiness that caresses the palate as the fragrance echoes a summer peach. Provide a slight 30 second rinse then brew in your gaiwan to get the most out of them. Don’t be stingy; pack in those leaves for the ultimate taste sensation. An oolong to cherish.

When the directions say 2 heaping teaspoons per cup, what size mug does that assume? I pour ~16 oz of water on the leaves per steeping.
