    First time trying English Tea Store's Formosa Oolong Estate Loose Leaf Tea? Try our Sample Size of 1 ounce.

    The Formosa Oolong Estate Tea blend from English Tea Store is smooth and slightly sweet with a touch of dryness. Oolong teas are semi fermented compared to Green Tea (unfermented) and Black Tea ( fully fermented).

    After rolling, the tea is allowed to ferment only until the edges of the leaves start to turn brown. The tea is then fired which arrests the fermenting process and captures the interesting character associated with Oolong tea. In Taiwan, producing oolong tea involves highly specialized skills in the control of the withering, oxidation and firing. A slight variance in any of these gives each variety a distinctive aroma, flavor, color and finish.

      Strong and woody.

      I brewed this the first time, and my immediate response from the color, aroma and taste was the soaking water/ aroma of dried porcini mushrooms that had been reconstituted. It was very earthy and woody, so if you like those nuances, this tea may be for you. I did a second brew from the spent leaves which was lighter and smoother, but still had the earthiness to it. Leaves a little more chopped up than others I've tried, and I did use the tea strainer, but still found some powder in the bottom of the cup. I was glad to be able to sample first,a wonderful offering of ETS, as this was not one of my favorites.
