Oolong tea is an essential beverage in China and Taiwan. There are four varieties of tea in Chinese culture – black, green, white and oolong, all derived from the camellia sinensis plant. What distinguishes Oolong from other teas is that it is technically neither black nor green - the colours come from the processing stages of withering, drying and fermenting.

 

Black tea is the most heavily processed. It is fully oxidised, which results in its characteristic dark colouration. The longer the oxidation time, the more strong and bitter the tea. Oxidisation also increases caffeine content. Green tea is barely oxidised, preserving the original green leaf colour and flavour.

 

Oolong is partially oxidised and comes in several styles based on the amount of oxidation, which varies from anywhere from 8% to 80%. It takes on more green tea features when oxidation is low or more black tea features with higher oxidation.

 

Rolling of Oolong tea to give it shape is another traditional feature of Oolong tea. It is rolled either into thin strands or round balls depending on the tea master.

 

Oolong Tea is revered in Chinese tea culture. It is traditionally drunk at blessing ceremonies guided by a tea master, with an elaborate formal ritual around how it is prepared, served and drunk. Of course, Oolong is also enjoyed outside of ceremonial events. It pairs well with many Asian foods or can be enjoyed alone as a top-notch alternative to your regular cuppa. Its robust but not overpowering flavour works excellently as an iced tea too.

 

Spice Zen’s Oolong Leaf Tea hails from China’s Wuyi Mountains, a region known for its lighter, easier-drinking Oolong style. The dark brown, semi-oxidised leaves produce a full-bodied, deep brew with hints of smokiness, an earthy, nutty aroma and perceptible fruity notes. It is rolled into broad strands and small quantities release abundant flavour.

 

Brewing Instructions: For best results, brew 1 teaspoon per cup for 3-5 minutes in water at 88 degrees Celsius.

Organic Ingredients: Oolong leaf tea.
