Oolong, in its original language, it translates to black dragon, its dark, greyish colour comes from the oxidation of tealeaves. The unique tasting notes of Oolong are the product of semi-oxidation, the oxidation process is paused manually before the leaves are considered fully oxidized. Its flavours lie somewhere in between green tea and black tea, offering astringent fragrant, yet smooth in texture.
The production of Oolong tea includes, plucking, withering, oxidation, fixing, shaping, and drying and roasting; each step is essential to the making of Oolong tea.
