The origin of Oolong tea can be traced back to the Fujian province of China. The flavour of these teas can range from fresh and green with a floral aroma, to thick and woody with a toasty aroma. In between is a variety of fruity and sweet oolongs with a honey-like aroma. Another popular region for Oolong production is the island of Taiwan, also known as ‘Formosa’, with the best of the teas being produced in the Taiwanese Alpine region.
