Oolong Tea is a wide-ranging tea with complex flavor and sweet fragrance. It is the most difficult type of tea to manufacture with many steps often over several days. After the leaves become pliable from withering, they are gently rolled or twisted to release leaf juices and begin oxidization. At the appropriate time they are lightly heated, arresting further oxidation. These consecutive steps are repeated nonstop for up to 48 hours. Oxidation levels are usually between 20%-90%. One could say oolongs “walk the middle path” between green and black tea.

Loose leaf tea is sold by the ounce. If you want more than one ounce, simply increase the number.
