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.

    Mild flavor

    Formosa Oolong makes a great cup of tea. It’s a very mild tea flavor. One that is very light but aromatic.

    An all day long tea

    I love coffee, but it does not love me and I needed an alternative option. Discovering Tea Forte's Formosa Oolong tea has been the perfect option; it is gentle on the tummy and easy on the taste buds.

    I am drinking this tea as I write this review, and I can say that it is smooth and flavorful, but does not taste to me like a typical oolong tea. If I were doing a blind taste test, I would guess this te to be a light bodied black tea, such as a good Darjeeling, or perhaps a Keemun (Chinese black). The aroma is an interesting mix of floral, mild spiciness and earthy. The color of the cup is a pleasing red-brown. I would reach for this tea if I am in the mood for a light, smooth black tea; but the caffeine content does seem more like an oolong tea (i.e. mild perk) when steeped at around 170 degrees F, for 1-2 minutes).
