Taiwan (formerly known as Formosa) is traditionally associated with the production of green teas, it is only recently that the country has branched out into exporting the semi fermented Oolong teas that are consumed and preferred by the internal market.
The word Oolong means ‘black dragon’ in Chinese and is used to describe the tea’s colour which is neither black or green. For Oolong teas, the leaves are partially oxidised before being rolled and twisted and then fired. This process results in a tea that is very complex with delicate notes ranging from stone fruit to wood depending on the length of the fermentation. This Oolong comes from the county of Nantou in the central highlands of Taiwan.
