Oolong Teas

Welcome To Our Oolong Tea Offerings!

Oolong tea is referred to as a “semi-fermented” tea and is principally manufactured in China and Taiwan (Formosa). After plucking, this type of tea is allowed to wilt in direct sunlight and is then shaken in bamboo baskets to lightly bruise the leaf.

The chemicals in the leaf react with the air, producing a reddish leaf color. After a desired amount of time, the leaf is fired and the fermentation process is halted.

These steps create the unique appearance and flavor of the two different types of oolong teas. China oolong teas are allowed to ferment for a shorter period of time and are therefore lighter in taste and appearance than the oolong teas produced in Formosan estates.
