A slight variance in any of these gives each variety a distinctive aroma, flavor, color and finish.

The best Oolongs to come from Taiwan (Formosa) where the character of short-fired oolongs has been described as peach like with a refreshing fruity herbaceous character whereas long-fired oolongs take on bakey notes with rich amber liquids. This tea falls into the latter category.
