Oriental Beauty Bärbucha Kombucha

Aktualisiert: 24. Aug.

One of our favorite Oolong Kombuchas is this Oriental Beauty Bärbucha Kombucha.


It is made with a top shelf Oolong called Oriental Beauty Oolong (also sometimes called Easter Beauty, or Dong Fang Mei Ren).

The tea itself, comes from Taiwan and it's an Oolong that belongs to a special category Bai Ho.

It means that it's a bug-bitten tea, and to be more precise, it's a tea which, when it is attacked by a specific leaf hopper predator, releases self-defense compounds that give this tea honey and muscatel aroma.

Tillerman Tea posted an excellent article about this tea's history.

Besides the very characteristic aroma, this tea has also a very specific look, with a color range from white hairy tips, through reddish parts to darker pieces.

It is a higher end Oolong, with a price over 300 Euros per kg.

And it's worth it, as it makes a very tasty tea (and equally tasty Kombucha).

Here is a shot from steeping:

And a closer look at the leaves after straining:

Whenever we make new Oolong Kombucha, we are always amazed by the complexity of flavors that come out through fermentation.

Below is a shot from bottling.

And finally the time to fully enjoy it!

Cheers! Prost! Na zdrowie!
