Oriental Beauty

 

During each summer, the tea farmers would be upset to see their crops eaten by swarms of small crickets, particularly present in the warm plains. They didn't even bother to harvest the leaves, because low quality tea was usually turned down by tea traders. One farmer didn't accept this fate. He harvested these bitten leaves and managed to sell them for a high price . Legend has it that this tea was so good that it supposedly made its way to the Queen Victoria who named it "Oriental Beauty".
About 70% oxidised, it has a famed sweet and sour flavour, with fruit notes. Like most oolongs its can be reinfused, with different flavours coming through with each brew.
