Tea Review: Formosa Oolong (Harney & Sons)

Formosa Oolong
Harney & Sons
Type:  Oolong
Origin:  Taiwan
Product Description:  Formosa Oolong is the style of brown oolong that generations of Americans have loved, especially for its toasty flavor. Don’t worry about the stems; the tea is traditionally made this way in Taiwan.

Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of oats, wood, and peaches.

The copper red infusion has a sweet and tart aroma of baked peaches and green vine.  The taste is moderately astringent with notes of fruit, wood, and nut shells with a long dry finish.

The first infusion provides the best results.
