Try the original taste of our blue-green Oolong teas.
Contrary to black or green tea, blue-green or oolong teas are semi-oxidised teas. The principle consists of blocking the process at a given moment to obtain a particular taste and colour. Little-oxidised oolongs have a vegetal, floral flavour and are pale in colour. More fermented oolongs are darker with strong, appetizing flavours. There are a number of steps: picking, withering to eliminate water from the leaves, oxidation to develop flavours, dessication to stop the oxidation process, rolling to break up the cells and give characteristic shapes (twisted, crimpled like Bao Zhong, etc.), drying and roasting. Oolong teas provide the body many of the same benefits as green tea!
