formosa teas collectionFormosa is the name given to Taiwan in the 16th century by Portuguese explorers who found it to be a 'beautiful island' and named it thusly. The lovely, fragrant teas grown there still retain this eloquent name from long ago. Taiwan is held in high esteem by the fine tea world for its complex, fragrant high mountain oolongs. They range from deeply roasted to very lightly oxidized and offer a vast range of palate experiences: rich mineral notes, complex fruitiness and ethereal floral essences. Set contains 9 oz. of loose tea.
