OOLONG – WHITE DOWNY

OOLONG TEA / 乌龙茶 wūlóng chá / 青茶, qīngchá

Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea. The length of the oxidation time differentiates between the green and black teas which are semi-fermented.

For Oolong tea, the tea leaves must begin to wilt in the sun after picking. The leaves are always slightly rubbed and shaken so that the escaping juice reacts with the oxygen in the air. For black tea the process takes longer. Classically, the oxidation is halted by heating in iron pans.

Depending on the oxidation duration the Oolong grade tends more to green tea or black tea…

Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea (Camellia sinensis) produced through a unique process including withering under the strong sun and oxidation before curling and twisting. Most oolong teas, especially those of fine quality, involve unique tea plant cultivars that are exclusively used for particular varieties. The degree of oxidation can range from 8 to 85%, depending on the variety and production style. Oolong is especially popular with tea connoisseurs of south China, as is the Fujian preparation process known as the Gongfu tea ceremony…

FUJIAN/WHITE DOWNY

The Oolong tradition comes from Fujian Province on China’s south-east coast, and the province is still a leading producer of Oolong Tea.

White Downy – recognizable by the white cold-fluff of the flower which identifies this quality spring tea.

1st) Tea of good Smell
2nd) Tea of good Taste
