Dong Fang Mei Ren is the local name for Eastern
Beauty, a style of uniquely oxidized oolong tea
developed in the 19th century in the low
elevation microclimates of Northern Taiwan.
This tea, from among the most cherished of lots
made just 10 days a year in early June, has
nuances of honey and pit fruit.
Tasting Notes: Succulent with vivid aromas of
tropical flowers, orange
blossom honey and pit fruits
Ingredients: Oolong tea.
Additional Info: Oolong tea artisans, like boutique
winemakers, bring forth the appellation
characters of their teas through traditional
crafting techniques. Each oolong tea's
distinctive style reflects its place of
origin, vintage and tea bush cultivar.

Standard Brewing Guidelines:
Water Temperature: 195°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Times: 2 minutes (1st infusion), 2 minutes (2nd infusion), 4 minutes (3rd infusion)
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
