Oolong tea is a traditional Chinese tea called ‘Wu-long’ meaning ‘black dragon tea’. Mainly produced in Fujian and Taiwan, it is known for its unique and distinctive characteristics.
Oolong tea is a complex tea that has a variety of leaf and crafting style, creating a broad range of flavors and aroma. It is a semi-oxidized tea, falling in between a black and a green tea. The natural oils of the tea leaves are released by shaking the leaves and the leaves are left to partially oxidise. Oxidisation levels range between 10% - 80% and therefore Oolongs have a wide variety of flavors ranging from floral, butter, nuts, burnt sugar and chocolate.
