Black Oolong is a high-oxidized oolong produced in the East Rift Vally, TaiDong, the eastern part of Taiwan.
Teas that are cultivated in this region tend to naturally taste bitter and astringent when they are low-oxidized due to the high temperature and low altitude of its growing environment. Black Oolong was developed by Taiwan's national Tea Research Institute, the TRES, under the cooperation with the local farmers to specifically target this problem. By raising the oxidization level close to black tea, Black Oolong loses some of its floral notes, but usually contains more aromatic ripe fruit notes and tastes less astringent; the sweetness of black tea has wonderfully mixed with the freshness of oolong and further results in aromas similar to Rosé or herbal liquor in the Black Oolong.
