oolong tea

Ciclo Vita Pu'er Sogno Sinensis

This is the tea category with the widest variety, and the most complicated processing. Oolong teas are found in various degrees of oxidation, from 8 to 85%, creating a very wide spectrum of flavors, which can be further diversified by the addition of other processes such as roasting. In the original denomination the term “qing cha” (blue tea, or green water, there are many interpretations) was used for a degree of oxidation lower than 60%, while for higher oxidation the term “oolong” was used, which translates in “black dragon”.
