Oolong Tea

Processing

Oolong tea originates from the Camellia sinensis plant. These tea leaves are purposefully bruised by shaking after they are picked.  The Chinese oolong tea is fermented at a lower degree and results in a lighter oolong. However, the Taiwanese oolong tea is fermented at a higher degree, giving them a stronger oolong flavor. 

Caffeine level

One cup of oolong tea has 10-15% of the caffeine in a cup of coffee.

Taste

Oolong is commonly brewed to be strong. It tastes bitter but leaves a sweet aftertaste.

Type

Monkey Picked Oolong Tea
Jasmine Oolong Tea
Sweet Oolong Revolution
