Oolong tea (a.k.a Wu-long tea) is a semi-fermented tea that undergoes partial oxidation leaving it in between black and green teas. It gets its name from its leaf shape, which looks like a Chinese dragon or wu-long. Oolong flavor profiles range from floral to toasty, and have a lovely smooth character. Oolongs may be steeped multiple times, allowing one to experience different nuances with each steep. Try one of our lovely loose leaf oolong teas today!
