Formosa Amber Oolong

  • 800

Tasting Notes: ripe stone fruit, honey, roasted nut

Description: Formosa Oolongs are known for their ripe fruit astringency, soft roasted notes, and smooth flavor. Soft hints of deep raisin and plum, with an autumn leaf note, linger with each sip.

From the mountains of central Taiwan, this handcrafted baked oolong is a good choice for those that love a classic darker style Taiwan oolong tea at an affordable price. An Amber Oolong is named for when a tea is baked to draw out intricate layers of rich flavor from the tea leaf.  Not only does it enhance the floral and fruit notes of a fine oolong, but it also creates an unmistakable toasty flavor.

Formosa Oolongs are from the country of Taiwan which was formerly known as Formosa. The island of Taiwan was named Formosa, translated to 'beautiful', by Portuguese sailors exploring the island in the 1500's.
