Organic Oolong Tea ....

Oolong refers to a category of semi-oxidized teas that can only be made from certain types of tea bush varietals growing in specific geographical regions. The production methods of oolong tea are only known to a few of the tea cultivation regions in the world... 
Oolongs too are made from leaves of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis. What sets it apart from the blacks or whites or greens is the single step of oxidation. Oolongs fit between black and green teas by being partially oxidized. The intention of the oolong maker is to partially oxidize the leaf, utilizing special withering, bruising, rolling, oxidation and repeated roasting techniques to fix the aroma and color of oolong. The result is a tea that on the scale of leaf oxidation and infusion color is somewhere between green and black tea. Depending on the duration of oxidation, season, regional style, tea bush varietal and roast degree, the resulting infusion colors of oolong teas range from lightly oxidized bright green or golden, to more heavily oxidized hues of amber-orange, to reddish and heavily roasted dark coffee-brown.

The oolong teas have caught the interest of tea drinkers for health reasons. It’s thought to be beneficial to health for its antioxidant properties, as much or more than the average black.
