Oolong tea also known as Wulong helps with digestion, lowers cholesterol, and has weight loss benefits. Oolong tea has a nutty or floral aftertaste and soothing aroma. Oolong is a semi-fermented tea that's made from large leaves to produce a full-bodied taste. After being picked, the tea leaves are withered to remove moisture. The oolong leaves are then left to dry in the shade before the semi-fermentation process begins.
Oolong varieties include Formosa, Ti Kuan Yin, Wuyi and other handcrafted teas. Oolong teas are full bodied in flavor and aroma, ranging from green and floral to dark and roasted with many notes between thanks to a unique roasting process that can last from 12 to 36 continuous hours.
