What Is Taiwan Oolong Tea?

Taiwan oolong is also known as Formosa oolong; Formosa, the previous name of Taiwan, means "Beautiful" in Portuguese, as called by the first European explorers
the original oolong tea plants came from China; due to limited cross-cultivation, oolong tea plants in Taiwan are very pure with only seven or eight varieties
most Taiwan (Formosa) oolong teas are grown in high mountain regions; the cooler environment leads to slower growth and fewer crops meaning the tea is always in demand
in Taiwan, high mountain oolong teas are considered the best
the additional firing which oolong teas undergo, gives the Taiwan oolong teas a darker colour and stronger flavour
