Oolong tea is known as the "champagne" of teas. It's partially oxidized, making it a tea somewhere between black and green tea. Taste the elegance and complexity of premium oolong tea. We have a superb selection of Monkey Picked Oolong Tea, Taiwanese oolong tea or Formosa oolong tea, Chinese oolong tea, Indian oolong tea, and several more!
Oolong teas have a withering and oxidation process much shorter than black teas but longer than green teas. They share some taste and characteristics of both black and green teas. The oolong process adds complexity and time to this type, often reflected in the price. Formosa Oolong, a popular and traditional type of tea from Taiwan, reflects leaves dried in the sun versus heated sheds and produces remarkably vibrant aroma. Oolongs are known for their sweet almost honey-like flavors, but also for their richness. Most oolong tea can be brewed for many infusions, maintaining unique flavors in each infusion. Some oolongs are more delicate than others and require less than boiling water, ranging from 180 to 190 degrees Fahrenheit.
We offer a variety of highest quality, loose leaf oolong teas from around the world. Each has its own flavor characteristics, aroma, and coloring. Oolongs are best prepared, served and enjoyed in the Chinese tradition of tea, Gong Fu style. Using gaiwans or Yixing teapots and the chinese tea accoutrements adds to the enjoyment of the delicate and complex nature of oolong tea.
