A DOOR TO THE FINE FORMOSA OOLONG ,
NOW OPENS IN GERMANY .
Parallels between the tea tasting and the wine tasting are magnificent, they are both potable formations where tasters can have the sense of their terroir and origin; different aromatic and flavorful expressions developing from the age, region, elevation, and how it was artisanally processed. In the 19th Century, Oolong tea from Taiwan, the island holds its old name as Formosa, had even been praised as "Champagne of the Tea".
Oolong tea refers to a large range of semi-oxidized teas. Generally speaking, Tea tends to taste brighter and fresher when the oxidation level is low (Green tea: nearly non-oxidized); and by raising the oxidation, tea could become creamier and sweeter (Black tea: almost full-oxidized). Oolong tea is the spectrum of a rainbow in between Green and Black. It shares similar magical properties with wine in that many different notes and flavors can be discerned in a single sip.
