Enjoy this succulent tea, especially palatable for those that do not enjoy the sharpness typical of green teas. Oolong tea is unique because of its partial fermentation which produces a diverse arrangement of both off-green and black leaves.
Produced through a unique process, including withering under the strong sun and oxidation, before curling and twisting, a legend of this tea's origin tells of a man named Wu Liang (later corrupted to Wu Long, or Oolong) who discovered oolong tea by accident when he was distracted by a deer after a hard day's tea-picking, and by the time he remembered to return to the tea it had already started to oxidize.
This tea is beautiful, tasty, full bodied, healthy and with a mildly smooth aftertaste. Highly recommended to those that enjoy the benefits of green tea but have a hard time with its lingering, semi bitter taste. Sure to appeal to the senses of both the black tea lover and the green tea lover.
