THE WULONG OOLONG TEA TRADITION
Oolong is one of the most popular of traditional Chinese teas. All green, white, oolong and black teas are made from the same tea plant, Camellia sinensis. Oolong is semi-oxidized, and falls between minimally oxidized green tea and more highly oxidized black tea. Oolong teas are called gingcha in Chinese, which translates as clear tea. They are high in beneficial polyphenol antioxidants. Wulong oolong tea was first discovered during the Ming Dynasty. It was originally produced in the Wuyi mountains in the Fujian province of China. It is thought that oolong tea was named after the Wuyi mountains. The tea grows in the mild climate and mist in the gaps of these mountains. These unique growing conditions and the partial oxidation processing methods produce oolong teas of special complexity and a roasted flavor without bitterness. Our tea is a high quality oolong tea, with a smooth, mellow and fragrant flavor and a warm golden color. This beneficial tea is good to drink everyday, hot or iced.
