Oolong tea is widely regarded by tea connoisseurs as one of the world’s greatest teas. With its fresh, unadulterated taste and floral integrity, it provides the purest and most absolute of tea drinking experiences. Tea Forte have worked with Taiwan’s tea harvesters to procure a superior grade of Oolong, which they’ve named Formosa (the former name of Taiwan). The leaves are plucked, dried and turned in the sun, until they acquire a warm and woody personality. Steeped the right amount, they emit a creamy aroma with hints of apricot and osmathus, and each sip is fresh as spring blossoms, with hints of mango, apricot and peach. Oolong tea doesn’t get much greener or more exquisite than this.
