Oolong Formosa Tea is a Specialty Tea from the vast mountains of Taiwan. It is our House Oolong, which, when brewed, has a mild aroma with traditionally grassy flavours.
The large, wild, curly leaves undergo fermentation and oxidation to approximately 50%. We take pride in packing Formosa Oolong Tea fresh to order, thereby ensuring the refreshing taste of quality.
Formosa Oolong Tea History
During the 14th century, Portuguese sailors dubbed present-day Taiwan “Formosa.” The term means “beautiful island.” It lies 100 miles from the southeast coast of mainland China.
However, despite its close proximity to the original home of Tea, it only started production in the mid-19th century. This coincided with the Chinese Qing Dynasty (1644-1912), a time of great political upheaval.
Thousands upon thousands of Chinese immigrants, many of whom had experience in the Tea industry, moved to Formosa. Their expertise became vital to the island’s economy as an increasing number of plantations and factories opened near the capital, Taipei. Oolong Formosa Tea is today one of the most popular varieties to come from Taiwan. But does it contain caffeine?
Formosa Oolong Tea Caffeine
Caffeine is a stimulating chemical compound that needs little introduction. When it comes to Formosa Oolong Tea caffeine, you can expect around 35-mg per serving.
This is more than Green Tea but less than Black Tea, which is why some people call Oolong the “in-between” Tea. Whether you’re here for its great taste, fascinating history or its Formosa Oolong Tea benefits, you’ve chosen well.
How to Make Oolong Formosa Tea
1, Put your Oolong Tea leaves into a Tea Infuser or Filter.
2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a mug or cup.
3, Boil fresh water and allow it to cool to temperatures between 80 and 90°C.
