Oolong Pouchong Tea is a Taiwanese treasure of exceptional character and charm. It’s the product of traditional Formosa (present-day Taiwan) processing methods, resulting in a rough, fleshy leaf Tea with a dark-green colour not unlike other Oolongs.
What makes it unique is its taste, best described as caramelly with distinct notes of almond.
Ultimately, Oolong Pouchong is as sweet as it is tempting. We pack it fresh to order here at our Pluckley-based factory, nestled within the captivating vistas of the Kentish countryside. This is our way of guaranteeing not only quality but also consistency.
If that isn’t enough, it’s worth noting that Oolong Pouchong Tea comes with remarkable health benefits. This is according to the latest scientific research, recognising this infusion’s ability to improve life in small yet significant ways. Namely, this nutritious delight can aid digestion, support the immune system and promote weight loss. Pretty neat for your morning cuppa, wouldn’t you agree?
Formosa Oolong Tea Origins
Taiwan finds itself approximately 100 miles from the southwest coast of mainland China. It has produced several types of Tea, though particularly Oolong Tea, since the 19th century.
This coincided with Chinese Qing dynasty rule (1644-1912 CE), a time of great political upheaval. Still, with the help of a British merchant and entrepreneur named John Dodd, Taiwan’s Tea industry went on to become a huge success.
During the 1860s, Mr Dodd transported Tea bushes from the Chinese Fujian province to Taiwan with his associate, Li Chunsheng. Together, they persuaded local farmers to increase the cultivation of Tea by providing financial support.
This, in turn, gave rise to the establishment of numerous plantations and factories in and around the Formosan capital of Taipei.
Today, Oolong Tea, including Oolong Pouchong Tea, is one of the most famous exports from Taiwan. We stock many, although this particular beverage remains ever-popular among our customers. Why not find out what it has to offer? You won’t be disappointed!
