Formosa Aged Wuyi Oolong 2000 is a very rare find in Taiwan. Wuyi Oolong refers to the tea tree variety, not the location. Wuyi Tea Tree was first introduced to Taiwan 2 centuries ago. With development of new varieties, Wuyi Tea Tree is getting smaller areas in Taiwan. Compare to other new developed varieties such as “Jinxuan” or “Cuiyu”, Wuyi produces darker oolong with riper characters, and may contain a bit more caffeine.
Aged oolong is re-roasted every few years, and stored in clay pots to enhance aging. This aging process produces the unique ripe fruit and roasted rice aromas. It is mild in caffeine and smooth for your stomach.
