Oolong is neither a black or a green tea as it falls into its own unique category. An oolong may end up with more black tea characteristics or more green tea characteristics depending on the direction the tea master takes in the processing of the tea.
Oolong tea is frequently described as partially oxidized tea with oxidization levels that may vary from less than ten percent (more like green tea) to as high as eighty percent (much closer to black tea).
Oolong tea is also hand-crafted into more unique shapes than other tea types. These artisanal shaping techniques depend on the traditional methods used by the tea master and are most commonly rolled, twisted or curled into tight balls or wiry strands.
Our oolong loose leaf teas are carefully selected and hand-crafted by tea masters. We micro-blend and package small batches assuring you get the best loose leaf tea from each harvest.
At The Spice & Tea Shoppe we never compromise on quality and strive to offer you only the best loose leaf tea because we feel you deserve it.
