Interesting. This is very similar to the Formosa Oolong I had from Tea Emporium, only richer. Deeper even, like coffee… Brisk! but also refreshing in it’s fruitiness.
I agree with Azzrian, it’s rather clean and a dark oolong indeed! Big thank you for the sample Azzrian!
(sorry for the short review, again!! I just got home… it’s almost 11!)
This Formosa Oolong Estate Tea is best enjoyed as a full pot with company. Named after the region in which it was grown, Formosa translates to “beautiful”, and refers to the area now known as Taiwan.
This tea is slightly sweet and smooth, but toasty with a touch of dryness. Oolongs are described as manufactured with some oxidation, which makes them not quite a black tea, and not quite a green; but somewhere in between.
For the best brew, Formosa Oolong Estate Tea should steep in water that has been brought to a light boil (165-190° F) for 1-3 minutes.
