Description:

Four Seasons Oolong tea comes from a locally certified biological tea farm* in the Alpine Tea Zones of Taiwan, which reach heights of over 1,000 meters above sea level.  The high altitude helps the tea plants and their leaves gradually grow to become strong and healthy. This oolong tea is slightly oxidized below 25 percent and endures a light roasting process that works to preserve the natural antioxidants while, at the same time, adding earthy flavors. During the brewing process, the whole leaves unfurl to release a fresh, floral, and mellow aroma. t tastes delicious and soothing with a fruity, medium tea body.

 * Grown without synthetic chemical substances and without genetically engineered seeds.

Oolong tea is semi-fermented with a range of 10-70% oxidation. Oolong tea is the most intricate and complex tea to manufacture. The characteristics of oolong teas are somewhere between that of green and black teas. Oolong tea provides a wide-range of choices of styles, aromas, and flavors. Their classic leaf shapes are ball-rolled, strip-style or open-leaf.
