Formosa Red Oolong
More than any other country in the world, Taiwan is known for its rich variety of Oolong specialties. The Red Oolong got its name because of the more intense oxidation that gives it a dark red color. The traditional roasting unfolds soft flavors with hints of honey, caramel and cocoa.

Dark roasted Oolong from the "Garden of Taiwan"
Taitung is located in eastern Taiwan and is often referred to as the "Garden of Taiwan" because there is hardly any industry and few tall buildings in this region. Taitung is comparatively sparsely populated, so you will find many green spaces. Due to the many hours of sunshine, it can get very warm in the tea garden, which is 350m above sea level. This climate is well suited for more oxidised tea varieties such as Black tea or dark Oolong.
