Formosa Oolong Tea

Big Leaves. Oolong (also spelt Wulong, or Wu Long) is literally 'black dragon' tea. A semi-fermented tea, the leaves are wilted in direct sunlight, then shaken in bamboo baskets to lightly bruise the edges. Next, the leaves are spread out to dry until the surface of the leaf turns slightly yellow. Oolongs are always whole leaf teas, never broken by rolling. Both refreshing and delicious; its long leaves unfurl to deliver the most exquisite, rich flavour - with sweet chestnut undertones.

TASTE NOTES : Sweet Chestnut

ORIGIN : Taiwan

INGREDIENTS : Taiwan oolong tea

BREWING :  One teaspoon per cup. Boiling water is too fierce for this Oolong tea. So, for just-off the boil water ( 80c ), simply boil the kettle, let it sit for two to three minutes, then brew your tea, 2 - 4 mins, a little honey or sugar, with or without milk. The leaves are suitable for one re-steeping. 

NOTES : Originating in China and primarily produced in a few Chinese provinces and Taiwan, oolong is made from tea leaves that have been partially oxidised and twisted to produce a tea that is somewhere between more robust black tea and delicate green tea. Although it looks different to black, green and white teas, oolong comes from the same plant: the leaves of Camelia sinensis.
