About Formosa Oolong Tea
During the 14th Century, Portuguese sailors dubbed what we today know as Taiwan as “Formosa”, which means “beautiful island”. Located 100 miles from the southeast coast of mainland China, it started producing Tea in only the mid-19th Century. This coincided with Chinese Qing dynasty rule (1644-1912 CE), a time of great political upheaval.
A British merchant and entrepreneur named John Dodd (1839-1907) essentially kick-started the Formosan (now Taiwanese) Tea Industry during the 1860s. He transported Tea bushes from the Chinese Fujian province to Taiwan with his associate, Li Chunsheng.
Together, John Dodd and Li Chunsheng persuaded local farmers to increase the cultivation of Tea by providing financial support.
The Chinese Civil War (1927-1936 & 1946-1950) created a controversy that still persists regarding the political status of the island. Despite this uncertainty, Taiwan has continued with widespread Oolong Leaf Tea production.
