type: oolong

origin: taiwan

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

Formosa Bai Hao is known by many names - Oriental Beauty, White Tip Oolong, Champagne oolong and Fancy Formosa Silver Tip, to name just a few. This heavily oxidized Taiwanese tea is one of the most prized oolongs in the world. Incredibly sweet, fruity and lush with a delicate warm spicy undertone. Striking and thought-provoking tea, perfect for multiple infusions. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      This is more oxidized than many oolongs so it closer to a black than a green. It has great flavor depth and allows for many steeps, each with a different note. I really like this one a lot.

      Formosa Bai Hao is unlike any other oolong in my collection (granted, my collection is very limited in both scope and size). It's the sweetest, tippiest, and most complex. I'm sad to say it's more complex a tea than I'm used to so I'm unable to give a better description. All I can say is that it's delicious and well worth the price.

      Nice mellow oolong. Definitely more on the side of black tea notes

      Smooth, toasty, and absolutely delicious. There's a slight spice warmth in it too, and it held up for 3 good steeps. I could absolutely drink this every day.

      A smooth, earthy oolong with a strong natural sweetness. I got more vegetal and hay like flavors, and not so much fruity or spicy as noted in the description.

      A smooth, simple oolong - delicious and good for multiple infusions! 😁

      This tea has a very smooth flavor and s small amount of leaves can go a long way.

      Really nice non-bitter tea. Would be refreshing on a summer day for just something plain.

      I put quite a bit of honey in mine, and it was decent. Without the honey I was not a fan at all.
