Overview of Formosa Oolong

This type of semi-oxidized tea from Formosa is known for its unique appearance and taste. Produced from carefully selected leaves, Formosa Oolong’s dark brown and noticeably twisted leaves produce a vibrant amber cup of tea. This tea has a distinctively sweet peach flavor and fruity aroma when brewed.

Our Formosa Oolong tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a point just short of boiling (190-200° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Formosa Oolong tea should be steeped for 3-4 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!

Boxed Bags

I love the Formosa Oolong - it was being sold in a coffee shop near my place of work, and I decided to buy a supply for home. It arrived today - I purchased the loose leaf tin and two packages of the bags (25 count). I am surprised to see that both of the 25 count boxes arrived with only 20 bags in the package........hoping that they are going to rectify this problem and take a look at their distributtor. The only reason I counted the bags was because visually it just did not look like 25.

MTW's Formosa Oolong is a classic tea. I have enjoyed it many mornings. It is, in my book, superior to a number of fancy oolongs that cost much more.
