Oolong tea (also spelled wulong tea or wu long tea)
is a semi-oxidized tea. Taiwan produces the best
oolong tea in the world thanks to a mature tea culture and ideal growing conditions.
The best Taiwan oolong tea is grown in the mountains of central Taiwan. Growing
conditions are ideal - high mountains in a subtropical climate create the cool humid
conditions that oolong tea thrives on.
The Beauty Of Taiwan Oolong Tea
Oolong tea from Taiwan is also known as Imperial Formosa Oolong.
The first Europeans to visit Taiwan were Portuguese sailors, who were so impressed by the beauty of Taiwan that they called it Isla Formosa.
This translates as "Beautiful Island" and although Taiwan is now a bustling modern
country, the tea growing areas of the island are prime examples of its natural beauty.
Most of the oolong tea produced in Taiwan is for local consumption. The Taiwanese
are discriminating tea drinkers who demand the best.
Tea competitions are
held on a regular basis and winners can receive extraordinary prices for their crop.
