Formosa Oolong or Taiwanese Oolong is any oolong (烏龍茶) tea that is grown and produced in Taiwan. Taiwan is also known as Formosa from the Portuguese “Ilha Formosa”, meaning “beautiful island”. Taiwan does not produce a very high volume of tea, but its teas are well-represented in specialty tea stores and are well-known among tea connoisseurs. The vast majority of tea produced in Taiwan is consumed in Taiwan. Taiwan has a strong tea culture, and the Taiwanese tea market is considered highly demanding; Taiwan imports some of the highest-quality oolong teas from other countries.
