Oolong Tea


Oolongs are a difficult tea to define. From the Chinese word wulong, named "Black Dragon" for its long, spiraled coils (as one theory goes), is a partially-oxidized category that not only takes years of precision and craftsmanship to master, but also has the largest spectrum of flavors due to its broad definition. They can be light, floral, and sweet like candied fruit, like some green Baozhongs can be; they can be dark, savory, and honeyed like caramelized nuts, like some roasted Tieguanyins can be. Ever-surprising in their depth and complexity, oolongs are an incredible testament to their terroir and the time invested in their processing.
