Default Oriental Beauty Oolong Tea Special Aroma cause by leap hoppers

In China, Oriental Beauty Oolong Tea is called “Dong Fang Mei Ren” or “Bai Hao Oolong” because the buds of the tea plant are have delicate white tips.

The name Oriental Beauty is said to have originated in England. Legend has it that a British tea merchant presented this very tea to Queen Victoria, she highly praised this tea for its vivid golden red colored liquor and the mellow, sweet flavor. Only knowing that the tea was from the far East, she began calling this tea “Oriental Beauty”, which has been its common name ever since.
