Bai Hao Oolong ( White Tipped Oolong ), also known as
" Asian Beauty "
is an entirely hand made tea, grown in Hsinchu County, Taiwan. It is a
rare tea, since it is harvested only once a year during the summer
months. The top, young, tender leaves are picked and there's a silvery
down that covers the spear-like points of the most delicate leaves. Once
steeped, the 90% oxidized leaves produce the rich, full flavor of a
black tea, and the honey & fruity sweetness of an oolong. Taiwan's Bai
Hao Oolong is considered the best in the world and is the favored tea of
the British Royal Family.
