What is Oolong Tea?

Just what is oolong tea you ask? Well, we are going to try to put it all together for you. First off, true oolong teas are amazing with their healing qualities and their ability to aid in weight loss and speed up your metabolsim. But maybe you already knew all of that.....

Oolong Tea - Where does it come from?

Oolong Tea The best and the most expensive of the oolongs originate from Wuyi cliff in the province of Fujian, China. It is grown in other areas as well, like the Guangdong province, and in some areas of Taiwan.

Oolong Tea - Oxidization

Oolong teas vary in quality and grade as do all teas. What makes an oolong is that it is 'partially' oxidized. The actual oxidization level can range from 10-70% depending on the quality of the oolong. Oolong typically tastes more like green tea than black tea, but it does not have the 'grassy taste' that you find with most green teas.

This is what makes oolong what it is. It is a cross between black tea, the portion that is oxidized, and green tea, which is not oxidized at all. So oolong is a blend or cross!

Of course it is impossible to stop oxidization at the exact level in each leaf as it is being processed so you get a range of oxidization depending on the tea.

Oolong - Serve it Strong

Oolongs are typically served quite strong and it has a very pleasing flavour. It is one of my favorite types of tea. It is important to brew oolong correctly. Find our article on Brewing Oolong Tea here.

Oolong, Wulong, WuYi?

Oolong is sold under several names, wulong is one of them, and some Wu-Yi teas as well.

The name oolong in chinese translates in english to Black Dragon Tea
