Oolong Tea

Oolong tea is semi-oxidized, having an oxidation level between unoxidized green tea and fully oxidized black tea. The making of oolong tea takes longer and is more complex than other classes of tea. There are four types of oolong tea, Taiwan Oolong, Tie Guan Yin or Iron Goddess of Mercy, Wuyi Rock Oolong and Phoenix Dan Cong Oolong. Oolong teas are usually named after its leaf varietal. The distinguishing aspect of oolong tea is its wide spectrum of strong fragrances and rich flavors. Each type has a distinct aroma and tasting profile. 

Traditionally, oolong teas are all roasted or baked over a charcoal fire. We focused mostly on Wuyi Rock Oolong or Yan Cha and Phoenix Dan Cong or Single Grove oolong. Wuyi Rock Oolong are from Wuyi Mountains. The tea from the Wuyi mountain area are called Zhen Yan, meaning True Rock. It has a robust flavor and mineral mouth feel that is known as "Rock Bone, Floral Fragrance." It is the most sought after oolong tea among Chinese oolong tea connoisseurs. Phoenix Dan Cong is exceptional for its dynamic floral fragrance, and as such each one is named after its unique fragrance. It is one of the most beloved oolongs in the world.
