Description

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

Traditional Brewing

Guywan Brewing Guidelines:
Water Temperature: 190°F

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.

Ingredients

Oolong tea.
