Formosa Guihua Oolong is based on Dongding Oolong blends with Sweet Osmanthus flowers. The actual process of blending is roasting. Tea masters add hand-picked Sweet Osmanthus flowers in to tea leaves and roast together. After roasting, Sweet Osmanthus aroma is fully extracted into tea leaves, the tea leaves are separated from the flowers, only some tiny flowers remaining in the tea leaves. The separated flowers are sent to make lower graded Guihua Oolong; this is why the top grading Guihua Oolong always come with fewer flowers in the tea leaves.
Our Formosa Guihua Oolong releases charming floral aroma with the delicate taste of Oolong, is one of the popular floral Oolong, and also a beauty drink in Chinese tea culture for centuries.
