Taiwanese Formosa Oolong
Oolong is a specialty, which had originally been produced in the Taiwanese mountains. After plucking, the teas are pre-fermented by approximately 50% and then wilted in the sun. Frequent turning of the tea in bamboo baskets during the drying process allows the Oolong to develop a mild aroma and a large, wildly curled leaf. After steeping, the still green leaf center with the fermented leaf edges becomes clearly visible. It is very light in the cup and has a very flowery and spicy taste.
