Half fermented Taiwanese tea with a woody flavour.
Tea cultivation in Taiwan started in the early 18th century. As the weather in Taiwan is highly variable, tea quality may differ from season to season. Although the island is quite small, it is geographically varied with high steep mountains rising abruptly from low-lying coastal plains. The different weather patterns, temperature, altitudes and soil ultimately result in different appearance, aroma and flavour of the tea grown.
This particular brown oolong has a very specific woody and nutty taste.
