Oolong teas are allowed to oxidize to varying degrees between green (no oxidation) and black (full oxidation). This is a medium grade Formosa Oolong (Taiwan was formerly known as Formosa), the type commonly served in many Chinese restaurants. The large, coarse leaves used to create this tea have been allowed to oxidize almost halfway and brew a smooth, mellow, fairly dark cup with light notes of earth, barley, and notes.
Recommended brewing: 3-4 minutes at 190- 209°F (87-98°C).
