China Oolong Tea

Oolong tea is somewhat intermediate between green and black tea. The finishing technique is that of green tea, but the preparation involves fermentation like black tea – it is a semi-fermented tea.

It therefore has characteristics of both green and black tea: the fresh and clear flavor of green tea and the thick and luscious fragrance of black tea.

Chinese Oolong tea comes mainly from Fujian, and Guangdong, and is also grown in Taiwan. Fujian has been the hometown of tea since early times.
