More about Oolong Tea

Oolong teas have always been taken seriously by those who are serious about tea. They are partially or semi-oxidized teas. Depending on the production methods used, oolong teas fall into two categories - dark open leafed or greener balled. Both offer a beautiful fresh and complex tea drinking experience.

The darker Oolongs can be infused several times, giving a soft, fruity, pale amber liquor with a honeyed character. The greener oolongs give a very pale amber-green liquor and have a wonderful fragrant character comparable to narcissus or hyacinth. Both can be infused several times. Oolongs are traditionally manufactured in China and Taiwan although other countries have now also started production.
