Fancy Formosa Oolong has an aroma and a taste like no other tea. The long twisted leaves, a mixture of brown, black and red with bits of green and silver, turn a rich copper color as they steep. As you sip, you will discover delicate but luxuriant flavor notes of fresh peaches and a hint of spice with no astringency and no bitterness. This lightness and fruitiness is very surprising to those who usually associate oolong tea with the dark dull tea often served in Chinese restaurants.

The production of top quality oolong tea is very labor-intensive. After being plucked, fresh shoots are spread on a flat bamboo basket and withered under sunlight for up to an hour. The leaves are then withered at room temperature on a clean surface for six to eight hours. Once an hour, the leaves are gently agitated by hand which greatly accelerates the production of flavor compounds. The edges of the leaves turn red and the moisture content drops. The leaves are then pan-fired for 15 minutes at a high temperature which inactivates the leaf enzymes and stops the fermentation process. Finally the leaves are rolled and dried.

Best Oolong

This is the one for a great Chinese meal. It has a nice floral - apricot aroma. I brew it at 190 deg F for 3 minutes and use 6 teaspoons for a 20 oz. teapot. Try it and you will never go back to the muddy oolong that you get at the typical Chinese restaurant. Well worth the price.

I enjoyed this tea for its scent, light color and subtle flavor. I ran out of it too soon. I give it 4 stars only because one other oolong is my all time favorite

Excellent Oolong

I have tasted oolong teas in southeast Asia and numerous American high class Chinese restaurants. This tea matches the best and is the highlight of a Chinese-style meal at home.
