  • Surprisingly wonderful
  • 5 star rating
  • Jackie – UT – November 15, 2020
  • I haven't purchased an "Oriental Beauty" tea for a long time - too expensive, mostly, and samples that I have purchased from various vendors didn't deliver the nice aroma/taste/satisfaction that I remembered from times past. On a whim, I tried this tea and was very happy with everything about it! Will surely purchase again.
  • Our favorite tea in decades, our Sunday Brown Betty treat

  • Richard – WA – September 17, 2020
  • It is difficult to describe this tea fully; I rarely use the overused adjective "unique", but it fits in this case. We are not greatly knowledgeable tea connaisseurs, but we would call it deep, with some spicy notes and a progression of tastes. Absolutely worth a try.
  • The best!

  • Marie – MA – July 01, 2020
  • This is one of the best new teas I've tried in a while. It's smooth and rich, it's a bit on the blacker side as oolongs go, and brews a lovely amber-colored cup. It's my new daily go-to tea.
  • Exquisite

  • Kevin – AZ – February 24, 2020
  • Much gratitude to Upton for both sourcing such a superb tea and their always-reliable descriptions of the cup. The peach/apricot/wildflower honey aromatics here are dazzling, and the price so modest for such exquisite quality that this may be the greatest value I've ever experienced in 4+ decades of avid tea connoisseurship.
  • Holy moly!

  • Joe – SD – February 01, 2020
  • Wow, what a treat. This oolong is so, so smooth yet still full flavor. Notes of fruits like apricot and peach with a lingering sweet finish adorn each delicious sip. Maybe a hint of sweet potato, at least in aroma, after multiple steepings. And the tea leaves are beautiful too, before and after steeping. Truly a remarkable cup, sure to impress
  • Best Beauty I've tried!

  • Jeff – MN – February 01, 2020
  • I've had some of the finest Eastern Beauties from Taiwan and this one beats those out hands down. Since the taiwan tea masters have gone to Vietnam they've started producing excellent Oolongs. Nice to see one here but there are many more. The description above is SPOT ON! Really the best Viet Oolong I've tried and the Best Eastern Beauty.
  • SO good!

  • Rebecca – NY – January 19, 2020
  • I got this as a sample and will order it for myself. It makes a lovely cup of tea- the kind where you take a minute for yourself and just do one thing- drink tea! Lovely aftertaste and aroma- just make sure to brew it for 3 min and no longer
  • Floral Fabulousness!

  • James – NY – January 16, 2020
  • Upton sent this to me as a sample with my regular order of Assam. I’m not an experienced oolong tea drinker, so I had to get my tea thermometer out for this one. Wow!!! Very impressive. After I drank my first pot, I couldn’t stop sticking my nose in the pot to smell the heavenly scent of the leaves! The second steeping was even more impressive.
  • Really wonderful tea

  • Chris – WA – November 16, 2019
  • Was beginning to lose interest in oolongs not from Taiwan. This is a really lovely cup. Never had a sweetness linger as long as this. Warm apricot & peach with a honey-like lingering.
  • A wonderful surprise
  • 5 star rating
  • MLC – TX – November 01, 2019
  • This might be my new favorite oolong. It has a lot of the peach notes that I love in an oolong, and it makes for a smooth, rich cup. Like many oolongs, it does well with multiple sweepings.
  • Best new tea of the year.
  • 5 star rating
  • Todd – AZ – October 01, 2019
  • Without a doubt the best new tea I've tried this year. The honey notes are predominant, resulting in a sweet cup with some maple finishes. I loved my two samples so much I ordered a big bag.
  • A Wonderful Oolong
  • 5 star rating
  • Stephen – CA – August 29, 2019
  • This is the smoothest, richest tasting oolong I've ever tried. Maintains its flavor even after multiple steeping. I drink it all day long. It's really worth a try.
