Oolong tea is also known as Wu Long tea. It has long been valued in China for its health boosting properties and aid to digestion. Our certified organic Oolong Tea is in the traditional style, rolled into long curly leaves. It is easy to see why the name means “Black Dragon Tea”!
Oolong Tea is from the same plant as both green and black tea. A unique process results in this semi-oxidised leaf, which is somewhere between green and black tea in both flavour and caffeine levels.
Like green tea, it is extremely high in anti-oxidants. Flavour is clear, fragrant and fresh, without the ‘grassy’ note sometimes found in green tea.

Brewing Tips – Oolong Tea
Use water just below boiling point, about 80 – 90 degrees.
Infuse one teaspoon of leaves per cup in a teapot, plunger or in-cup infuser. Let steep for 2 minutes to ensure the best flavour – strain and serve.
We suggest that Oolong tea is not left to steep too long (only 2-3 minutes) as it might develop a bitter taste if over steeped. However, experiment to find the timing that you prefer.
