Our prized Oriental Beauty, also known as Silver Tip Oolong and Champagne Oolong, hails from Sanxia, Taiwan. Lauded for cultivation and provenance, these pesticide-free plants attract the tiny tea green leafhopper. Invisible nibbles initiate the development of Oriental Beauty's unique flavor. Leafhopper-bitten leaves release defense compounds that become the delicious taste and aroma that distinguish the very special Oriental Beauty. The International Taste and Quality Institute in Brussels has granted this estate The Superior Taste Award.
