It offers the particular oolong character of a tea. I brewed it in hot water for a short while and then poured off the water. It yielded a slightly sweet, toasty flavor. I infused it several times over and I was treated to a distinct aroma, color, and finish each time. I like this medium oolong with a smooth subtle taste

I love the Fine Tip Formosa Oolong tea. This Oolong variety is a combination of the green and black types and therefore has a distinct flavor and aroma making it so very special to tea drinkers. I prefer to brew it a little longer, as it brings out the inherent taste flavor and aroma of the tea. It is kind of strong in flavor, but taste awesome when blended with honey. The taste of honey with the tea gives it a taste that is almost addictive.

It has a distinct flavor. It can be infused several times over; each infusion gives a unique taste, different from the preceding infusion. Itís got a light, yet rich and lush taste. I recommend stepping it for about five to seven minutes in boiling hot water for best outcome. The delicious fruity flavor is a pleasure to sip and it also has a nice refreshing aroma. Another excellent recipe for it is ice tea made with ice, lemon and honey. Absolutely invigorating flavor.

The tea looks good enough to be tried. When put to a boil, a medium oolong is let off in red-brown color and you can get an aroma of black tea and earth. The taste of this tea is something like green and black. It is very smooth and delicious, along with some earthy notes beneath it. I also offered a few cups to my guests and they were quite pleased with the pleasant taste. When I had friends over, they also asked me the place where I got this tea from and I promptly replied the source. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.
