Oolong is a specialty tea originally produced in Taiwanese mountains. After plucking, the teas are pre-fermented to approximately 50%, then wilted in the sun. Frequent turning of the tea in bamboo baskets during the drying process allows the Oolong to develop a mild aroma and a large, curled leaf. After steeping, the still-green leaf centre and fermented leaf edges become clearly visible. It is very light in the cup and has a very flowery and spicy taste.
