Product Description

Tea: Formosa Oolong

Formosa is the old Portugese name for this Asian island nation and is famous for its Oolong teas. Oolong teas first originated from Taiwan and now they are produced extensively on mainland China and elsewhere.

Oolong teas are typically part-fermented. This means that they are partially oxidised between the stages of being a green tea and a black tea which affects the flavour.

The flavour is soft, fruity and wonderfully moreish.

We recommend brewing this Formosa Oolong tea for 3 minutes at 80C.


As with coffee, we source our tea through established relationships with individual farms, cooperatives and trusted partners. Although our business started with coffee, we introduced tea in the 1980s and spent a lot of time developing our selection and creating our very own blends.

Sustainability is an equally important factor in the tea growing process, both to our business and the wider tea industry. The most important part of the entire tea process is that the coffee farmers, their families and their communities all benefit from our relationships. Specifically, we work with tea estates which care for the local environment, work hard to combat climate change and support the workers and their families.
