DONG FANG MEI REN (Oriental Beauty)
This tea originates from Nantou Mountain in Taiwan. It was named Oriental Beauty by Queen Elizabeth II in the early 20th century when she first tasted this tea.
The production of Dong Fang Mei Ren tea is quite unique. Besides the usual 3 elements to make tea, heaven (weather), earth (soil) and men (skilled farmers), there is a 4th element for this rare and more expensive tea. They are the Jacobiasca formosana Paoli and their precious bites. These cicada feed off the leaves and deposits an enzyme that significantly alters the teas colour and flavour. The end-result is a delicious, dark honey like composition and a natural fruity aroma and a sweet taste without astringency.
To brew this tea add 2- 3 tablespoons of tea leaves to the teapot with 8 ounces of 190 degree temperature water. The infusion time is 4 minutes for the 1st and 2nd brew and 5 minutes for subsequent brews. Enjoy!
