東方美人(白毫烏龍茶)

東方美人(白毫烏龍茶)

以前只有在新竹有的製茶工藝現在由北到南,從平地到高山都有它的蹤跡,只是隨著製茶師傅的觀念或市場的導向,各地的美人茶風味與質地都有明顯不同!沖泡東方美人茶溫度不宜太高,85度左右即可。
東方美人又稱膨風茶


採收必須在炎夏農曆芒種至大暑間,即端午節前後茶芽吸引小綠葉蟬附著於幼業上咬噬,經手工採摘小開面的芽心,以傳統技術精製而成!茶樹嫩芽經茶小綠葉蟬(小綠浮塵子)吸食後長成之茶芽,稱為「著涎」的茶菁,茶葉品質的好壞決定在「著涎」的程度。高級 的東方美人茶發酵度達60~75%,所以不會產生「生菁臭」、「臭菁味」,不苦不澀。最適合製作東方美人茶的茶種是「青心大冇」,現在也有人以青心烏龍的品種和其他改良品種製作…….



製茶過程:茶葉炒菁後,多一道以布包裹,「靜置回潤」,再進行揉捻、解塊、烘乾。
茶葉白毫肥大,葉身呈白、綠、黃、紅、褐五色相間,有濃濃蜂蜜香熟果味。
Oriental Beauty東方美人茶:
獨特的熟果味和蜜香,來自小綠葉蟬的叮咬而產生,茶園若要吸引小綠葉蟬群聚,是不能噴灑任何農藥。所以,有蟲害的東方美人茶才是最高級之極品,但也因為蟲害讓茶的產量少得可憐,這也是東方美人價位高居布下的主要因素。
