Formosa Fame is what we named this elegant Alishan Oolong because Alishan Oolongs are probably one of the most famous teas for Taiwan, and Taiwan was first called "Ihla Formosa" by Portuguese sailors in the 16th Century meaning "beautiful island." And indeed this is a beautiful island along with the production of beautiful teas. For this Alishan Oolong we asked the producer to add our custom light roast to add an element of complexity and depth. This tea is grown in Taiwan's Ali Shan tea growing region at an altitude of 1500 meters and above.
