Oolong Tea

Oolong teas (a.k.a. Wu-Long tea) are not fully oxidized, and this processing imparts a lighter body than black teas. Often characterized by their beautiful, large leaves, loose-leaf Oolong teas are suitable for multiple infusions, and are ideal for the Gong Fu method of steeping tea. Stimulating flavor notes make Oolongs a great afternoon choice.
Choose from our wide variety of selections from the following regions: Formosa (Taiwan), China, Tanzania, Japan, Vietnam and New Zealand.
