If you are a white tea lover, then you are going to love the oolong that I am sharing in this Tea Review. Oriental Beauty, or Dong Fang Mei Ren in Chinese, is also known as Bai Hao Oolong, which means white tipped oolong, referring to downy tea buds. I think you're going to get oolong with Oriental Beauty by Origins Tea!

Oriental Beauty by Origins Tea reminds me of a summer green. Not too bright but not too dull and still full of life.
When steeping Oriental Beauty by Origins Tea, you will think that you are making a berry fruit salad instead! Oriental Beauty smells like a medley of berries, cherries, nectarines, and citrus grape!
Without 2 teaspoons of honey, Oriental Beauty tastes like a smooth concoction of mixed fruits. The various fruit aromas lay like silk on the tongue and make it very pleasant to sip without a sweetener.
With 2 teaspoons of honey, Oriental Beauty tastes a little more intricate; the berry and fruity notes fall to the back and make way for a sweetened peach flavor with a slight nutty finish; sort of like a white tea.
I can honestly say that Oriental Beauty by Origins Tea did WOW me and I will be adding it to my tea cabinet. I love the intricate notes and how the tea does not disappoint without a sweetener. I also appreciated how the tea was a discovery with every sip.
