Oolong Teas

China - Oolongs

Oolong teas from High Teas have complex flavours and rich aromas and they have more strength than Green Teas, but with less Caffeine than fully-fermented black teas. Our Oolong loose leaf tea is sourced from the finest tea plantations from China & Taiwan. The taste of Oolong tea can vary but is commonly a woody or flowery flavour.Oolong tea is also known to provide many health benefits such as a healthier immune system.

Oolong tea is also widely known as brown tea or wu long tea, and is a hybrid between green tea and black tea. All kinds of tea are made from the same plant variety, Camellia Sinensis. It is the production methods that differentiate black, green, white and oolong tea. White and Green teas are unfermented, Black teas are fully fermented, whilst Oolong teas are semi-fermented, giving them great complexity and flavour.

Oolong tea originated about 400 years ago and was first produced at Mount Wu Yi Shan in Fujian Province at the end of the Ming Dynasty.

Fujian Province has the ideal conditions for the cultivation of tea. In weather terms, the annual average temperature is 18 Celsius and there is a marked difference between morning and evening temperatures, with mountain mists forming readily on Mount W Yi Shan.

In China teas have always been associated with Herbal medicine, and drinking tea has been associated with soothing the mind and uplifting the spirits.
