Bai Hao Oolong. Formosa Oolong. Oriental Beauty.
Whatever you call it, it's one of the best teas around.
I'm currently enjoying a cup of Steven Smith Teamaker's Bai Hao. Its subtle peach aroma envelopes me.
I steeped it for seven minutes, as James Norwood Pratt (author of The Tea Lover's Treasury) recommends. It's heavenly.
Every sip is a complex burst of nectar. Fruity but woodsy, bold but smooth.
It's tea time, and I am happy.
