Formosa Oolong Bay Jong is light green in color and brews a pale yellow-green cup. The large leaves unfold during brewing to show off the top two leaves and bud. The liquor is very aromatic and slightly floral. The flavor is delicate with no hint of astringency or bitterness. This tea is best enjoyed during quiet times when you can really appreciate its intricate flavor and aroma.

The production of top quality oolong tea is very labor-intensive. After being plucked, fresh shoots from the tea plants are spread on a flat bamboo basket and withered in sunlight for up to an hour. The leaves are then withered indoors at room temperature for six to eight hours. Once an hour the leaves are gently agitated by hand which greatly accelerates the production of flavor components. The leaves are then pan-fired for 15 minutes at high temperatures which inactivate the leaf enzymes and stop the oxidation process. Finally the leaves are rolled and dried.

The plants selected for oolong tea production are chosen for their strong flowery aroma and beautiful large leaves. The extraordinary quality of Formosa Oolong Bay Jong comes only from Yilan County in northeast Taiwan where the soil and climate are perfect for this type of tea. The tea estates here are situated at an elevation of over 3500 feet. The Bay Jong tea is produced in very small quantities and is available only during the early stages of the harvest. Teas harvested later in the year do not produce the same wonderful flavor.

Quite nice

I am enjoying this tea. Satisfying, not overwhelming. Remembering why I prefer oolong over most other types.

Beautiful and delicate Oolong

To be honest, when I first tried steeping this Oolong, almost nothing happened. The water was almost clear, and I thought that the tea had gone bad. I dumped the water out and started steeping again. This time, the bouquet of gardenia came from the steeping tea. The delicate flavor is reminiscent of freestone peach and mineral meeting with the gardenia makes for a quiet gem of a Taiwanese Oolong.

Probably my favorite oolong. So

Probably my favorite oolong. So sad that it's being discontinued!

Great tea

First reason for purchasing the tea, is that it brings back memories of a wonderful trip years ago to Taiwan, where we saw the tea growing in fields. This is the real thing. Quite likely most Asian restaurants do not serve a tea of the quality of the Formosa Oolong. A really great tea.
