Oolong Formosa

Oolong Formosa

A fine traditional oolong tea produced in Taiwan. It has a slightly sweet and nutty fragrance, a well rounded flavour and a dry finish that makes for a very refreshing tea.

The semi-fermented oolong teas are called "blue-green" teas in China and fall somewhere between green and black tea in their level of oxidisation. The leaves are naturally sun dried and gently tossed before the oxidation process is halted by pan frying. They are then rolled and roasted to produce this fine and traditional oolong.
