2023 Summer Oriental Beauty Tradition from Hsin Chu
The taste of Tradition
Cultivar: Qingxin Dapang
Harvested by hand: July 24th, 2023
Origin: Hsin Chu, Taiwan
Process: Jassid bitten buds, medium to high oxidation, striped and lightly roasted.
The leaves are a mix of small and medium leaves and white buds. This year, the summer harvest went according to plan: rain when the leaves were growing and dry weather during the harvest. The orange brew has a very good shine, clarity and transparency. The open leaves are mostly red, reflecting a high oxidation level. The leaves are flexible, less roasted than usual, and show signs of jassid bites.
The dry leaves smell of ripe fruits and light roasting. The brew has fruit and honey scents. These scents are delicate and refined. Since this is a single batch, this Oriental Beauty shines with the purity and natural feel of its fragrances. This year's fragrances are already open and don't require any further aging!
The brew tastes sweet, pure and has a good aftertaste. This year's Oriental Beauty is very warming and comforting thanks to its traditional process. This year's quality is outstanding!
