Taiwan is famous for its tea which are of three main types: oolong tea, black tea and green tea. The earliest record of tea trees found in Taiwan can be traced back to 1717 in Shui Sha Lian (水沙連), present-day Yuchi and Puli, Nantou County. Some of the teas retain the island country's former name, Formosa. Oolongs grown in Taiwan account for about 20% of world production.
Back in Time for Tea - Oriental Beauty (Dongfang Meiren) Tea - Netflix
White Tip Oolong is very fruity in taste and got the name “Oriental Beauty” from Queen Elizabeth II in the 1960s, thus “Formosa Oolong” became popular in the western world for “Oriental Beauty” (東方美人茶). Along with Lishan Oolong, it was one of the most costly exported Taiwanese teas during the 2000s. Its unique flavor originates in part from the inclusion of insect eggs and egg sacs during harvesting, contributing an element that has been described as “earthier and more robust” than Earl Grey tea. The acceptance of this flavor has led to tolerance of the insects and organic growing practices for this tea.
