«Dong Fang Mei Ren» («Oriental Beauty») from Hsinchu County (Northern Tea Region of Taiwan), harvest fall 2021. This variety is famous for the fact that small insects fuchen-tzu (Jacobiasca formosana) are involved in its creation. Protecting itself from their bites, the tea plant changes its chemical composition. The result is an amazing, unique bouquet of the ready-made tea.
In appearance: small, brown, twisted tea tips. The aroma is intensive, berry-and-biscuit. The liquor is transparent, with a shade of white grapes.
The bouquet of the ready-made tea is fresh, berry-floral with notes of citrus, biscuit and spices. The aroma is tender, berry-floral. The taste is smooth and refined, silky, sweetish, with bright berry sourness and refreshing finish.
Steep the tea in a hot water (75-85°C) in a porcelain gaiwan or a teapot of porous clay. The proportion is 5 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 15 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 3-5 seconds), increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can steep the tea up to 10 times.
«Dong Fang Mei Ren» is a lovely tea for a variety of situations and moods – bright, playful and inspiring.
