Beauté Orientale Organic (40g bag)

Product code: CSTAD-499

Following the aesthetic of a Bai Hao with the cultivar (qingshin), a favourite of the Taiwanese, this "Oriental Beauty" comes to us from plantations located on the flanks of the Jingmai mountain in Yunnan (China). You can also find this Wulong tea in our bulk section under the name Bai Hao Jingmai organic.

Its long leaves with hues of ochre and khaki reveal, upon immersion in water, rich fragrances of bark and cooked pears. Its attractive amber liquor boasts sweet and tart flavors evoking citrus zest. The finish lightly cradles the palate with its nuances of sweet spices (cinnamon) and heady flowers.

This new line of product is coherent with our desire to reduce our ecological footprint, using nearly 60% less packaging than our previous line.

Bai Hao Jingmai (Oriental Beauty) Organic

Following the aesthetic of a Bai Hao with the cultivar (qingshin), a favourite of the Taiwanese, this Wulong tea called "Oriental Beauty" comes to us from plantations located on the flanks of the Jingmai mountain in Yunnan (China).

Bai Hao

Easily one of the most famous teas coming out of Taiwan, Bai Hao wulong carries out a very distinctive taste (akin to muscat grapes and spices) that is due to the intervention of a very specific leafhopper (Jacobiasca formosana).

Bai Rui Xiang

A worthy representative of the rock teas (Yan Cha), this Chinese wulong with delicately rolled leaves was only slightly roasted, preserving its flavourful vegetal, citrus and floral fineness. Its full and tangy (tangerine) liquor, deploys rich tropical (durian) and honeyed aromas.

Da Hong Pao Mr. Wu

Legendary Wulong from the Wuyi mountains of Fujian, it is the most famous of the Chinese "rock teas", as they are called. Delicately twisted whole leaves are lightly roasted for a rich full liquor.
