    oolong tea


    Oolong tea was first invented in Southern China by the people of Wu Yi Shan and it was named based on the shape of the dried leaves. Tea makers noted that the dried tea looked like a ‘Black Dragon’ and the name was born. It is considered the most complicated tea produced and requires great skill and experience to craft the enormous range of flavors, fragrances and liquor colors. In fact, while oolong is an oxidized tea considered to be between green and black tea, it can range in oxidation from 15%-75%. Oolong tea is grown in three regions of Southern China (Fujian, Guangdong and Taiwan) creating four distinct types: Rock Oolong, Chaozhou Dan Cong Oolong, Anxi Oolong and Taiwan Oolong.
