Brewing instructions
Description

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.

4, Infuse for 2 to 3 minutes. Any longer and you risk creating a bitter taste.

How to Serve: We recommend serving it without any additions to fully appreciate its extraordinary taste.

Tasting Notes: Embrace quintessentially “Oolong” flavours with grassy overtones.

Formosa Oolong Tea Benefits

There is a multitude of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants playing a significant role in promoting Formosa Oolong Tea health benefits.

These include (but are not limited to) fluoride, manganese, potassium, sodium, quercetin, magnesium, niacin, myricetin and kaempferol. Such a combination of properties can help in aiding digestion, boosting immunity and even enabling weight loss.

Formosa Oolong Tea Weight Loss

How, you might ask, can Oolong Formosa Tea benefits reduce the size of your waistline? They boost the metabolism of fat cells. Metabolism is where your body converts the fuel in your food into energy, which is then used to power near enough everything you do.

By increasing its capacity, you can burn fat quicker and more efficiently, leading to periods of exercising producing better, more noticeable results.
