Oolongs is considered a semi-fermented tea meaning it is somewhere between a black and green tea.
The making of oolong tea is regarded as a precious art that requires years of training.
From the nursing of a seedling, to planting, to nourishing the bushes, to properly selecting the best time to pluck the leaves, the husbandry of the tea farmer is a legacy passed down from many generations.
It is felt that only the application of years of dedicated study and practice, can provide the exceptional quality oolong teas.
Oolong means semi fermented. After rolling, the tea is allowed to ferment only until the edges of the leaves start to turn brown.
The tea is then fired which arrests the fermenting process and captures the interesting character associated with Oolong tea.
A slight variance in any of the process gives each variety a distinctive aroma, flavour, colour and finish.
