Picture of Taiwan Oriental Beauty (Bai Hao) Oolong Tea

Taiwan Oriental Beauty (Bai Hao) Oolong Tea from TeaVivre

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Taiwan / Formosa

47 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5

Dark, severely roasted dry tea, and brown color brew. Taste is plain, not particularly harsh, but without any floral overtones. Very unexciting but not particularly unpleasant either, just acceptable. I feel, longer brewing time should be avoided. A second steep was not much different from the first one.

Green, amber, without excessive grassy astringency and bitterness, with interesting, intriguing flavor evoking forbidden, undesirable, queer associations, with some mawkishness when cooled. Will drink with care. The second steep, without adding fresh tea, was more pleasant.

Dry leaves look as if green tea, however, the brew is light brown, slightly lighter color than Auspicious Ayame (a discontinued by Teavana oolong, my benchmark for Oolongs for now), good floral taste when cooled, but not as complex as Auspicious Ayame’s.
I brewed it 8 min. as the color did not seem dark enough whi...
