Oolong tea from Taiwan. Formosa, meaning 'beautiful' was what the Dutch explorers called this island. The oolong tea grown here continues to be called as such. The intense pungency and exquisite bouquet of Formosa Oolong tea is regarded to be the finest in the world. Our 'Oolong Symphony no. 8,' comprised of large 'choicest' grade copper-red leaves with beautiful tips of silver is a wonderful introduction to this variety.
