Oolong Teas

Oolong Teas

Oolong teas, sometimes also known as blue teas, are partially oxidised teas, with the most known varieties originating from Taiwan and China. The name ‘oolong’ derives from the Chinese term for ‘black dragon teas’.

These teas are greatly appreciated by tea connoisseurs, due to their complex character and often distinct fruity, nutty and even floral flavours and aromas. Oolongs are somewhere between green and black teas and as such they often exhibit the delightful freshness of green teas and the enticing maturity of fully oxidised teas.
