Formosa Oolong Poppy Tea originates from Taiwan. The name "Poppy" refers not to the ingredients of this Tea, but to its fine grade. It's a Tea grading system in line with China's, which often uses names of flowers and birds. This particular Tea, however, is one of the best. Malty notes first strike the palate upon the very first sip of Formosa Oolong Poppy Tea, followed by scrumptious herbaceous undertones.
It makes for a great start to any day, and will have you going back for more just as soon as you've drained your morning cup! Best of all, there are health benefits to be had from frequently consuming this Tea. According to the latest scientific research, Oolong Tea, when combined with a healthy and active lifestyle, can support the immune system, improve digestion, boost the metabolism and even reduce the risks of developing type-2 diabetes.

According to countless Tea Connoisseurs around the world, when it comes to Oolong Tea - one should choose a Formosan Oolong! Formosa was the original name of Taiwan first used by Portuguese sailors in 1517, meaning "beautiful island". During the Chinese Qing Dynasty (1644-1912), many Tea planters moved from mainland China to Formosa to start life afresh, which in turn gave rise to a new Formosan Tea Industry.
In 1866, a British trader named John Dodd began championing Formosan Teas on the world market, and in time the industry grew larger from his efforts. The next boom came about from the Japanese occupation of Formosa, which saw large-scale industrialisation sweep across the island; once humble family-owned farms transformed into fully functioning Tea factories, and Formosa became a big player in the world of Tea.
Today, Taiwan has maintained its reputation and, in fact, increased it significantly. Taiwanese Oolong Teas such as our Formosa Oolong Poppy Tea continue to be immensely popular - why not find out why today?
