A nice tea,
Very delicate flavour,
Works well served gong-fu style, during multiple infusions the flavour went from a woody earthiness to a slight persimmon-esque flavour.
Although I prefer the company’s Tie Guan Yin to this.
Formosa Oolong Tea is grown in strictly controlled conditions in Taiwan (formerly Formosa).
It is said that the pickers of this tea must take hot baths twice daily and are given special foods to eat, to prevent the body and breath from hurting the delicate leaves!
