Imperial Formosa Oolong is an exquisitely delicate and fragrant tea, traditionally drunk by Taiwanese Buddhist monks in the evening and perfect for the quiet moments at the end of the day.
It takes its name from the original name of Taiwan, Formosa, meaning 'beautiful island' and it is a tea fit for true connoisseurs. Highly prized, it is ranked as one of the best teas in the world. It is made by extremely skillful processing from oolong leaves, creating a flavour that falls half way between a black and a green tea. Its floral, lingering sweetness comes from a process of repeatedly bruising and shaking the leaves. This Taiwanese Oolong is slightly sweeter than traditional Chinese varieties.
Imperial Formosa Oolong is a tea to take your time over, to fully appreciate its complex fragrant sweetness and malty floral taste with hints of fruit and spice.
