Drink Me: Tea Embassy, Fancy Formosa Oolong

A few weeks ago I decided it was time to try a new tea provider and I placed an order with Tea Embassy. I ordered several selections, but today I’ll be reviewing the Fancy Formosa Oolong.

From the website, Fancy Formosa Oolong contains white-tipped oolong from Taiwan.

It is available in a variety of sizes: 1oz for $6.00, 2oz for $12.00, 4oz for $24.00, 8oz for $48.00 and 1lb for $96.00.

When I opened the package, I got a delicious aroma.  I’ve mentioned before that I love oolongs because, in my opinion, they tend to be the smoothest teas.  This tea was delightful.  It was a strong tea, but not quite as bitter as some black teas.  With a bit of sugar, it was sweet and full bodied with just a hint of peach and apricot flavors at the end. This is the perfect morning or afternoon tea, especially with a jam-filled cookie.
