Description

Taiwanese tea growers have perfected the art of producing spectacular Oolong tea and nowhere more so than in the Fomosa region, so naturally that is where our Oolong was sourced. This Formosa Oolong has been long-fired to give it a smooth, baked flavor with hints of sweetness. It will produce a rich amber cup and a wonderully distinctive aroma.

This Oolong is named after John Dodd, a scottish merchant who introduced tea seedlings to the Formosa region in the 19th century, established his own processing factory then distributed high quality Formosan Oolong to the world.
