I have seen many oriental beauty teas described as having a citrus taste, but try as I might, I've never had the experience of brewing one that could plausibly be described as citrus. I wish I could, however; anyone know if a particular brewing style brings this characteristic to the fore?
If you understand a good champaign, that's one of the citrus character described. Brewing a good quality OB needs high heat and flash infusions.
