The best part of this tea is the sweet lasting taste it leaves in your mouth coupled with the blissful sweet flavor it leaves at the tip of your tongue and a rich fruit aroma at the end of your tongue.

Origins of Red Oolong

Over 200 years ago on the island of Formosa, also regarded as Taiwan tea development history, the natives after many years of laborious experiment and trials had developed a number of specialty teas, some of which include the popular twist-shape Pouchong tea, hemisphere-shape Pouchong tea, Oriental Beauty tea in addition to island oolong tea, black tea and green tea. These teas have gone on to become some of the world's most celebrated teas. Since 2008, a new kind of peculiar tea has been developed on the beautiful, pristine eastern coast of the Formosa Island and specially named the “Red Oolong.” Unlike other teas, the unique tea is ideal for either hot or cold brewing and its soup has an uncharacteristic orange color with a delicious taste to go along with.

Metaphorically speaking, if the twist-shape Wenshan Mountain Pouchong tea is a budding young girl, the Tung-Ting Oolong tea is a beautiful, elegant lady, the Tieguanyin tea is a strong, capable middle-aged man, while the Red Oolong tea is a gentle, modest, chivalrous man equipped with powerful Kongfu.

Features of the Red Oolong 

The major characteristics of this unique, sweet tasting tea are its ability to be served and enjoyed either brewed hot or cold. However, if you want to get the best of its sweet flavor, then perhaps you should try the cold brewing method. Red Oolong tea is produced using two-leaf sprout that is delicately handpicked and selected meticulously. Thereafter, the tea leaves are heavily withered and mixed. Similarly, the production technique used for making Black tea and the Red Oolong share some slight similarities. The sweet smelling aroma, unique orange color and delicious flavor of Red Oolong are very different from the traditional Pouchong tea that features a milder aroma.

  • Red Oolong has a hemisphere shape with a glossy, dark, red color. 
  • The tea soup is bright and clear. It has amber and orange color similar to the black tea soup but with a touch of Oolong flavor.  
  • Red oolong has a high degree of fermentation. It can be collected as Aged tea. 
  • The texture is thick and smooth with ripe fruit flavor. It is thickly-mellow and infusion-enduring. Red oolong tea is one of the few teas that you can completely enjoy when it is cold brewed.
