Fans of oolong tea are clamoring to get Imperial Formosa oolong tea. Because oolong teas in general are fairly rare, many people want to look to other sources to find their favorite oolong.

Oolong teas are produced in China, where oolong tea originated, Taiwan, and a small amount is produced in the Darjeeling region of India. Creating oolong tea is a labor intensive process that cannot be managed by large scale tea gardens that produce tea in a mechanized fashion. This is why oolong teas can be rare and harder to find than some other teas.

To produce oolong tea the gardener plucks the Chinese Flower Tea leaves early in the day by hand as they are ready. This may mean several pluckings over several days, as it is critical that the leaves be plucked at their exact time of readiness.

Next the leaves are spread out in the sun or in sheds to wither. They must be observed so that they are moved when the moisture is appropriately removed.

Next, the leaves are shaken to slightly bruise the edges. This bruising causes the oxidation process to begin.

The tea artisan then wraps the leaves in cloth, forming a ball. The leaves will be tumbled regularly during the remainder of the oxidation period in order to ensure that the oxidation process is even. Some oolong teas will be tumbled every hour during the oxidation period.
