About Formosa Oolong

Tea Type : Oolong Tea

Considered by many tea drinkers to be among the most complete tea drinking experiences, Oolong presents the perfect balance between green and black teas. Working directly with the growers Tea Forté has procured this lightly-oxidized, warm and woody variety with exceptionally fragrant and floral flavor, presenting richness and intensity. After plucking, the loose leaves were grouped into bamboo baskets carefully fermented and then wilted in the sun. Frequent turning of the tea in the baskets during the drying process allowed for the Oolong to develop a floral aroma with large, wild curly leaves.

Formosa is another name for the island of Taiwan. Ihla Formosa means "beautiful island" in Portuguese.

It is not typical to add dairy or sweetener to oolong teas. Oolong teas are enjoyed throughout the day. The nutty flavor of our Formosa Oolong pairs well with berries and soft cheeses.

Steeping instructions

1. Heat water to 195˚F.
2. Place tea in cup and pour water over the leaves.
3. Steep for 2-4 minutes.
4. Enjoy!

For loose leaf iced teas, use 2 tsp per 8oz glass.

    Nutty oolong

    Love the nutty flavor yet not too strong like black tea. I’ll be looking for the loose tea canister.

    Best tea bag tea

    I'm a heavy tea drinker. I often make pots of tea using loose leafs, but in a pinch, I resort to using tea bag. The Formosa Oolong tea bags from Tea Forte are in a class by themselves. This stuff is good :)

    Smooth and delicious!

    One of my favorite teas, I have so many from Tea Forte! A lovely smooth taste, never over powering. And always love the convenience of the darling triangle pouches. I carry a couple in my handbag to use when eating out, then I just ask for hot water.

    Residual Pleasure Lasts for Oo(so)Long

    This delightful tea tickles the senses on a plethora of levels. It has a comforting, yet sophisticated taste that enhances the entire experience. It is just right in potency, and balances a dynamic flavor with centuries old traditional palate pleasing. It is viewed as a respite either mid-day, or late evening. Incredible!

    Mild tasting

    I love the pyramid teas. They elevate the tea-drinking experience. However, I am used to drinking strong Oolong, with a hint of bitterness to it. This oolong is very mild, with no complexity at all. I prefer the jasmine green tra profile much better.

    Rich yet soothing

    Tea Fortses Formosa Oolong is one of my favorite teas. It has become my everyday tea with its rich yet soothing taste. I usually buy the loose tea for home and the pyramids for work. Love them both. A very reliable tea.
