ORGANIC OOLONG TEA
Formosa Oolong is a darker style oolong 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.

I'm fairly new to the world of oolong teas and I really like this -- very smooth, fruity, notes of honey...it's good! I mixed this with some Assam and Lapsang Souchong teas to make a Russian Caravan-style blend and it came out great.
The dry tea smells like sweet cranberries. The liquor is dark reddish brown with a pleasant earthy mineral scent. The flavor is minerally with sweet fruity notes. This is a mild tea for how dark it is. Flavorful, but not overpowering and a perfect complement to a light meal. It reminds me of a classic Christmas tea without the spice.
