The best Oolongs come from Taiwan (Formosa) where the character of short-fired oolongs has been described as peachlike with a refreshingly fruity, herbaceous character, whereas long-fired oolongs take on bakey notes with rich, amber liquids. This tea falls into the latter category of long-fired oolongs.
It is worth noting that in Taiwan, the making of oolong tea is regarded as a precious art that requires years of training. From the nursing of a seedling, to planting, to nourishing the bushes, to properly selecting the best time to pluck the leaves, the husbandry of the tea farmer is a legacy passed down for many generations. It is felt that only the application of years of dedicated study and practice, combined with the unique character of Taiwan tea leaves, can provide the exceptional-quality oolong teas that have made the island famous for its teas.
