Oolong Teas

The name Oolong comes from the Chinese ‘Wu’ (black) and ‘Lung’ (dragon).  Oolong leaves are semi-oxidised (25-75%), which means that it sits in between Green and Black teas and can take on tastes varying from light and delicate to floral and full flavoured. They are most commonly produced in Taiwan.

Oolong tea leaves undergo processes that include withering under strong sun and partial oxidation which determines the degree of colour in the leaf and flavour profile. The leaves are then shaped, rolled or twisted before dried. 

Oolong contains many health benefits due to the high levels of tea polyphenol antioxidants, minerals and vitamins and amino acids.
