Taiwan produces the best oolong tea in the world. Its unique growing environment is due to both its geographical position and its mountainous terrain.

Oolong tea has been produced in Taiwan for more than 150 years. It was an important export commodity up until the 1980s, when oolong tea production switched to supply a growing demand from the domestic market. Taiwan oolong tea is now grown almost exclusively for tea lovers in Taiwan.
