Oolong Teas

 

 

 

Referred to as half (or more correctly) semi-oxidized, Oolong (Wulong) teas are made by combining elements of green and black tea processes. After often both outdoor and indoor withering, the usually larger, older leaves are carefully rolled around on rattan trays in order to “bruise” their outer edge. The black outer and green inner parts of the leaf give these teas their characteristic qualities. The liquor color ranges from a golden yellow to a deep coppery brown and can often reveal a slight fruity or floral tastes. Some high grade Oolong leaves can even be brewed up to 10 times.

Teas are available in bulk packaging or in "The Tea House" brand retail packages. Price is per lb.  Minimum quantity is 2 lbs. unless otherwise (*) indicated. Prices and availability are subject to change without notice. Custom blending available.
