Formosa Oolong Tea

Our Formosa Oolong Tea provides a truly unique tea-drinking experience. Oolong originated from - and is a speciality of - the Formosa mountains in Taiwan. After plucking, the leaves are fermented and then wilted in the sun. Frequent turning of the tea in bamboo baskets during the drying process allows the oolong to develop a mild aroma and a large wildly curled leaf. It is light in the cup and has a flowery, spicy taste.

An Oolong for Serious Tea Drinkers

Oolong teas have always been taken seriously by those who are serious about tea. They are partially or semi-oxidized teas. Depending on the production methods used, oolong teas fall into two categories - dark open leafed or greener balled. Both offer a beautiful fresh and complex tea drinking experience.

The darker oolongs can be infused several times, giving a soft, fruity, pale amber liquor with a honeyed character. The greener oolongs give a very pale amber-green liquor and have a wonderful fragrant character comparable to narcissus or hyacinth. Both can be infused several times. Oolongs are traditionally manufactured in China and Taiwain although other countries have now also started production.
