From Georgia Tea Company

Oolong tea from Taiwan. Formosa, meaning ‘beautiful’ was what the Portuguese explorers called this island. The oolong tea grown here continues to be called as such. The intense pungency and exquisite bouquet of Formosa Oolong tea is regarded to be the finest in the world.

I had three rather pleasant steeps of this tea this afternoon/evening using my huge mug. I don’t think that I’ve had a plain “Formosa” oolong. I tried doing some research (i.e. I looked at two sites and then gave up), but I came up no more wise. My brain just sort of glazes over when I start trying to figure out locales/types of oolongs. I was really feeling impressed with myself when I could go “oh, that’s gotta be a Wuyi.” And then I visited Life in Teacup’s site and my head ’sploded a little.

All this is to say I can’t really grade this as an oolong. It has a great peachy smell both with the dry leaf and steeped cup. I got hints of “planty” oolongishness (as opposed to “veggie” or “earthy”). It’s a really pleasant tea but I prefer a bit more “oomph.” I’m quite curious to try it iced. NE

I like Georgia tea company’s teas but wish they sent their teas in sealed bags instead of fold over tops but guess that’s O.k. I just put them into my tea containers. When you open the bag this tea has a really nice peachy smell. I was worried about steeping it for 4 minutes that it might become bitter but it had no bitterness at all. Very smooth tea plain and then the next cup I added a few pieces of rock sugar and that brought out more peach flavor. Just a nice, pleasant, mellow cuppa. I ordered more of this to try this summer iced.
