The name translates as Oriental Beauty. From the Fujian province. Oolong type of tea, I presume from the aromatics and taste, though it doesn't say so on the packet.

Old tokaji colour. The nose is full of flowers and cinnamon and it lacks the savoury edge to make this balanced for my nose, though it is very refined and elegant. The palate, though a little tannic, also lacks the grip I look for in tea (or any drink, apart from tap water, LOL!!), is fruity and soft and elegant, but, alas, for me unbalanced because not savoury.
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
