Oolongs are semi-oxidized teas with a rich diversity. Unlike black tea which is fully oxidized and green tea that is completely unoxidized, oolong teas have anywhere from 12% to 80% oxidation. Generally speaking this can make an oolong as delicate as some green teas or as robust as a black. Further some oolongs go through the additional process of roasting which not only adds complex flavors to the tea, but also makes them suitable for aging. Over time the aging process improves the taste profile quite markedly.
Most of our oolongs come from organic tea farms in Taiwan. Although some may not have organic certification as they are from small family-run farms committed to sustainable growing practices. Quite fortunately, our oolong teas are curated by a Taiwanese tea master we have known for over 10 years. It is a great honor to offer teas personally selected by him!
