Dong Fang Mei Ren Formosa Oolong is legendary and of highest quality, handpicked “Champagne Formosa”. It is a fairly high oxidized leaf (60-70%) and undergoes a heavy withering process; it was grown in the county of Hsin Chu in northern Taiwan, it has the qualities of both oolong and black tea. Dong Fang Mei Ren has leaves reminiscent of autumn foliage, with its brown, red and yellow colors. Just the top nibbled leaves of the tea bush are picked, so the tea comprises a beautiful mix of small dark green and golden brown leaves and some pale silvery tips. Once steeped, this tea produces a sweet, smooth taste with high notes of baked ripe-peach, with a sweet citrus aroma.
