Oriental Beauty Bärbucha Kombucha

Aktualisiert: 2. Mai

Our current favorite Oolong Kombucha is this Oriental Beauty Bärbucha Kombucha.

Made with a top shelf Oolong called Oriental Beauty Oolong (also sometimes also 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 specific compounds that produce honey and muscatel aromas in that tea.

The whole history and more details about this tea, you can find in an excellent article by Tillerman Tea.

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

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

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

We have enough tea to make few batches of this outstanding Kombucha. After the tea is gone, it'll be time to try another exciting Oolong.

Cheers! Prost! Na zdrowie!
