Formosa Aged Wuyi Oolong 2000 is a very rare find from Taiwan. Wuyi Tea Tree was first introduced to Taiwan 2 centuries ago. With developments of new varieties, Wuyi Tea Tree is getting smaller areas in Taiwan. Comparing to other new developed varieties such as Jinxuan or Cuiyu , Wuyi tea leaves produce darker oolong with riper characters, and may contain a more caffeine. Aged oolong is re-roasted every few years, and stored in clay pots to enhance aging. This aging process produces the unique ripe fruit and roasted rice aromas. It is mild in caffeine and smooth for your stomach.
How to store aged oolong? Store away from light, moisture, and odor. It is not necessary to keep in air-tight container, because it helps aging if the tea is exposed to some air. It improves aging to keep it in a clay canister
