Oolong tea is processed to create tea with characteristics of both green and black tea, with an obvious sweet and nutty aroma. The tea is withered in the strong sun, before twisting, curling, and drying.
Brewing Instructions: 195 degrees for 4-5 minutes
History: Oolong was discovered in the Wuyi province of China in the 16th century, and was often pressed into tea bricks or tea cakes. Americans in the 18th century purchased tea from this region in this form, which preserved it for travel. When tea cakes fell out of fashion and loose tea was preferred, the more modern form of oolong was produced.
Options: Select from the drop down if you prefer a 3 oz loose leaf tea tin or 20 Pillow Sachet Teabags. Both options come sealed in a signature matte black tea tin.
