Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea that is sought after for its unique taste and its amazing health benefits. It is produced from the camellia sinensis leaf, but through a unique process which involves wilting it under hot sun before twisting and rolling. The tea is fermented, or oxidised, to develop its unique aroma and body. There are many different cultivars and slight variations on the fermentation process, resulting in diverse flavours from light and fruity to woody and roasted with a hint of smokiness.
