This tea marries Taiwanese skill with the mountainous terroir of Mae Salong. It is processed using a method similar to “five-colour” Bai Hao Oolong, the most famous of which is Oriental Beauty, but adds a final roasting stage. The result is a tea with floral, fruity, and honey notes as well as an intense toasted flavour.

This highly aromatic tea is reminiscent of the finest highly oxidized Taiwanese Oolong as well as “antique” roasted Oolong.

The Choice of Francois-Xavier Delmas

Tea sommelier Expert and Founder of Palais Des Thés

This Grand Cru, created in the same way as an "Oriental Beauty", has undergone more intense roasting. An exceptional tea for lovers of gourmet notes.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional
