OOLONG TEAS

Oolong tea leaves are semi-oxidized.  This means the leaves may be close to a green tea or almost fully oxidized like a black tea. As you can imagine, this classification of tea can have many different looks and flavor profiles. The leaves are often the larger leaves from the tea plant which allows for more nuances of flavors.  Many credit oolong teas for helping to weight loss and reducing cholesterol. To make Oolong, use 1 teaspoon of tea per cup.

Pour not-quite-boiling water over the tea and let steep 2-3 minutes. Please note that the tea leaves with higher oxidation should use boiling water bring out more flavor. Most oolong teas may be steeped multiple times.
