Renowned for its health-giving qualities, oolong essentially falls between black and green teas on the spectrum of tea varieties. It can have more black tea or green tea characteristics, depending upon how the tea master processes it.

Oolong is unique in that it is often referred to as partially oxidized tea, because it’s made by oxidizing the Camellia sinensis leaves for a while, but not as long as black tea leaves. The amount of oxidation, however, can vary widely—from 8 to 80 percent.

Originally from China, oolong only represents about 2 percent of the world’s teas. Yet the plethora of potential health benefits from combining green and black tea qualities makes it a prized variety.

Oolong tea leaves are rolled, twisted or curled into tight balls or thin strands. The final flavor can be subtly altered by the tea master during the rolling process.

Oolong teas are all too often overlooked—yet they can offer some of the most diverse and electrifying flavor profiles out there. They’re primarily grown in concentrated areas of China and Taiwan, but the regions vary greatly in terms of climate and growth conditions, creating a broad diversity of tastes. The oolong teas we carry range from floral to robust.

High Mountain (Gaoshan): These are varieties of oolong that have been grown in Taiwan at the highest elevations—above 3,300 feet. They grow more slowly than other oolongs and are typically seasonal teas, because they are harvested by hand twice each year. The leaves gathered in October are known as winter Gaoshan, while those plucked in June are called spring Gaoshan. High Mountain oolong varieties are Alishan, Wu She, and Yu Shan.

Iron Goddess of Mercy: (Ti Kuan Yin): This is arguably the most famous Chinese tea, grown in the high mountainous region of the southern Fujian province. The reason it is termed “monkey picked” is because legend states that monks trained monkeys to harvest the leaves. This tea was only brewed for the emperors of China at one point in time. Today, you can enjoy its exquisite flavor.

Traditionally, the leaves of a batch of this tea came from a single bush, which is where the tea gets its name. Each bush produces a different flavor, so each batch of tea yields a unique taste. However, today, Phoenix tea is also used to refer to any oolong produced in Guangdong province. Either way, Phoenix teas are famous for their aromas of flowers and fruits, as well as their natural flavors. Watch them steeping: The dried leaves slowly unfurl to create a curly appearance.

The caffeine content of oolong teas falls somewhere between green and black tea. A lightly oxidized oolong tea is more similar to a green tea and may have a lower caffeine content, while a highly oxidized oolong tea may have a higher caffeine content, similar to black tea. The caffeination also varies depending on the cultivation process.
