Formosa Oolong Orange Blossom
Formosa Oolong Orange Blossom is a light, delicate, brightly scented and highly refreshing Oolong tea, infused with the sweet, subtle aroma of orange blossoms.
This is a tea to lift the spirits on a soggy afternoon or refresh and revive in the heat of the dog days of summer. With its delightful and happy fruit flavours, it is perfect as a mid-afternoon energy boost.
Formosa, now called Taiwan, is the world’s greatest producer of Oolong (or Wu-long) teas. These delicious, biscuity, toasty, semi-fermented teas are half-way between black and green tea. The leaves are bruised and exposed to the air to oxidise for a short while, then baked to arrest the process. This produces a delicate tea but one that is full of flavour.
The Oolong character is well-suited to the soft citrus flavours of the orange blossoms. The result is one of the most successful marriages of the tea world.
Steeping Times: Formosa Oolong Orange Blossom is a tea that prefers a rather light infusion. Use one teaspoon per person. Pour on fresh water that has been boiled and then allowed to cool for 30 seconds. Leave about 3-5 minutes to infuse. Best enjoyed without milk or sugar. You can re-steep the leaves 2 or 3 more times.
