Oolong tea from Taiwan. Formosa, meaning "beautiful" was what the Portuguese explorers called this island. The oolong tea grown here continues to be called as such. The intense pungency and exquisite bouquet of Formosa Oolong tea is regarded to be the finest in the world. Oolong Teas also known as Wu-long tea ( the new slimming tea that helps burn fat ) are picked by hand during the spring and winter months in Taiwan. Oolong tea is semi fermented which is one of the reasons it has such a unique character compared to Green Tea (unfermented) and Black Tea (fermented).
