Formosa Oolong is a darker style oolong tea from Taiwan, formerly known as Formosa (which means 'beautiful', given by the Portuguese explorers of the island). Deep raisiny and ripe fruit aroma, autumn 'leafy' notes. Lingering sweet flavor and smooth, refreshingly fruity astringency. This Formosa Oolong is easy to prepare and remains a lovely introduction to Taiwanese tea. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      I like a good oolong tea but this one was a little too strong for me

      This is a nice, darker Oolong tea. A little astringent, I think I'll appreciate this tea more as I continue to brew additional cups.

      Nice more oxidized oolong with a smooth and somewhat nutty flavor

      I found this oolong almost bitter to my taste, but I can tell that it's a solid oolong and just not light enough for my taste--I regifted it.

      I enjoyed this oolong tea a lot. I usually get it hot in the morning and cold in the afternoon depending on my mood

      A nice and flavorful oolong, a bit more oxidized than I prefer though, but that's just my personal preference and nothing to the actual flavor. It was still an enjoyable cup.

      Very much a fall tea. Nice and earthy with a touch of fruitiness.

      I love this tea so much! It puts me in mind of the lovely, earth teas served after a meal at a nice restaurant

      Smells a bit like tabacco, tastes like buttered mashed potatoes

      Simple, smooth, roasty flavor. Not my typical cup of tea, but very nice!

      A nicely robust oolong. Good clean flavor and smooth finish.
