Oolong Tea

Oolong Tea

Oolong tea is a type of tea that is sometimes called 'wulong' (also pronounced 'oolong') or 'black dragon' tea.

Oolong teas are semi-oxidized teas. They are sometimes called 'semi-fermented teas,' though this moniker is considered to be less technically correct than semi-oxidized teas. After the tea leaves are picked, they are rolled and allowed to oxidize. Oxidation produces the floral notes that characterize many oolongs.

After oxidation and partial shaping, oolongs are heated to halt oxidation and carefully shaped one last time. Beyond this basic heating, many oolongs are roasted. The roasting process can give oolongs darker aromas and flavors, akin to ripe fruits (especially stone fruits), nuts, roasted grains, caramel, coffee or chocolate.

  1. Darjeeling "Single Estate" Autumn Oolong Tea

    Darjeeling "Single Estate" Autumn Oolong Tea - 3.53 oz

    This Darjeeling Oolong tea is a certified tea direct from the Darjeeling district in West Bengal, India.
    Because it is semi oxidized, Darjeeling Oolong is lighter than a usual Darjeeling first flush black tea. The cup looks light orange and the infusion remains green. Darjeeling Oolong autumn flush is more "thick in cup" and dark orange in liquor with distinct muscatel flavors.
    Not all Darjeeling gardens are qualified to produce Darjeeling Oolong. Altitudes 3000 ft. above sea level are required and the average growing temperatures should remain between 5 and 20 °C throughout the season. Lower elevation Darjeeling gardens can produce teas of similar appearance, but the flavor differs greatly from the main characteristics of oolong tea.
    Darjeeling Oolong teas are made from finely plucked leaves, usually two leaves and a bud, and are sometimes withered naturally in the sun and air. The plucked withered leaves are then hand-rolled and pan-fired at specific temperatures to finish.
