Oolong tea from Taiwan. When Portuguese explorers 1st discovered Taiwan they gave it the name Formosa, or “Beautiful Island” The oolong teas grown here continue to be called by this name. The least processed of Formosa oolongs are termed pouchong. This incredible pouchong is a lightly oxidized tea w/ large wavy, loosely twisted, dark green leaves. The dry leaf offers an aroma reminiscent of the 1st buds of spring rising from the wet earth. Proper brewing yields a brilliant, if pale, golden-green liquor and a taste that is mild and softly floral with medium body and no astringency. As the liquor cools your palate will be rewarded w/ a buttery sweet finish that lingers on the tongue.
3g/8oz 205 degree F water for 1-2 min. Good for multiple infusions.
