From Granville Island Tea Co

Oolong teas are fermented only until the leaf edges turn brown and then gently fire dried to create a flavor and character that is unique to this style of processing. Formosa Oolong hails from Taiwan, source of the world’s finest oolong teas.

So continues my quest for the perfect dark formosa oolong. The dry tea has a spicy-ish smell to it. Brewed it has quite a pungent, almost woodsy sort of taste with a strong bakey flavour accompanying it. I noticed that it took on some fruity notes and taste a little bit sweeter as it cooled off.

The second steep (@3:30) has a sweeter, more developed fruity flavour and it tasted less bakey than the first round.

I’m still trying to figure out the brand name of the bulk 31-cent-an-ounce oolong I get at a local health food story. It behaves a lot like you have described above. If I discover it, I’ll pass along…


Cool, thanks. :)
