Premium Formosa oolong

(19 customer reviews)

The character of short-fired oolongs has been described as peach like with a refreshing fruity herbaceous character whereas long-fired oolongs take on bakey notes with rich amber liquids. This tea falls into the latter category.

Description

DESCRIPTION:

Oolong means semi fermented. After rolling, the tea is allowed to ferment only until the edges of the leaves start to turn brown. The tea is then fired which arrests the fermenting process and captures the interesting character associated with Oolong tea. In Taiwan, producing oolong tea involves highly specialized skills in the control of the withering, oxidation and firing. A slight variance in any of these gives each variety a distinctive aroma, flavor, color and finish.

 

PREPARATION:

HOT TEA:

1. Put 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of Premium Formosa oolong for each 7-9 oz/200-260ml of water in the teapot.

2. Pour freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep 3-7 min.

3. Add Milk & Sugar to taste.

ICED TEA: (1L/QT):

1. 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of Premium Formosa oolong into a teapot.

2. Pour 315ml boiling water on tea. Steep 5 min.

3. Quarter fill serving pitcher with cold water Pour into pitcher straining the tea.

4. Add ice, top-up with cold water, garnish & sweeten to taste.

 

ADDITIONAL INFO:

It is worth noting that in Taiwan, the making of oolong tea is regarded as a precious art that requires years of training. From the nursing of a seedling, to planting, to nourishing the bushes, to properly selecting the best time to pluck the leaves, the husbandry of the tea farmer is a legacy passed down from many generations. It is felt that only the application of years of dedicated study and practice, combined with the unique character of Taiwan tealeaves, can provide the exceptional quality oolong teas that have made the island famous for its teas.

  8. JMPrice

    I am very picky about my oolong tea, and I have to say, this is some VERY GOOD QUALITY tea! I am so sick of all the fake and bitter oolong tea in the market, so I really can’t believe I am able to find freshly harvested Taiwanese oolong tea without having to travel all the way to Taiwan

  9. Nanette

    Very nice Taiwanese tea with full body flavor. Being a Taiwanese my expectations were high and this tea does not disappoint and I would definitely order again.

    I am a tea enthusiast and I like brewing loose teas. I did some research to find a decent oolong and I think this product is the best. The taste is smooth and mild, and as strong as Chinese oolong.

  12. Thomas Laronga

    This tea is as described. It has a very mild taste and light color. I reuse the leaves a couple of times and don’t notice a drop in the quality. I would buy again.

  13. barry

    Best oolong ive tried so far, I highly recommend. When brewed correctly, This tea is very flavorful and gives a lovely clear golden green color. Serve in glass cups.

  14. brepko

    Wow this tea is smooth. It is the best oolong I have ever had. Fantastic

  15. joyce Godfrey

    I like this tea. It’s relaxing and I don’t have to add much sugar to enjoy the taste. Might have to get a few more packs before I run out!

  16. Steph Bartle

    I was looking for cheap and good oolong tea :) I found it here. This is quite good, although I am not a tea aficionado. My favorite tea is oolong tea and I had tried it a few times in the past, however it is not so common that people serve it in restaurants or at their house. So I missed tasting this tea and just wanted to buy a cheap packet to see if I still loved it as much as I remembered. I did :) Get this tea.

  17. Suzanne

    Absolutely love this tea! It’s a must have at home! For those who are looking for a good Oolong tea, I think this one is truly good and ideal. It is perfect for the quality and the price. Oolong tea is the best tea for our health, and this one is worth every penny. I highly recommend it! Instead of snaking I just have some tea and you don’t even need extra sugar in the tea because it tastes perfectly fine by itself.

  18. redinthebed

    This is my favorite oolong tea and I can’t always get it locally. I drink it every day over ice with a little vanilla and stevia. Oolong is great for revving your metabolism.

  19. Robert

    I am very pleased with the flavor of this tea. I am drinking a cup in the morning and afternoon. I am sure that there is a health benefit as I am feeling great and my attitude is better as well (according to my wife)!
