Se Chung Oolong has a shorter fermentation time than other Oolongs from Fujian province. Light color tending in a yellowish cup. With delicate exotic flavor notes of a top Oolong combined with green tea characters, this particular tea is much sought after. The defining moment for Se Chung Oolong is purported to have occurred in Fujian Province during the Ching dynasty. An elderly monk who was suffering from a ‘cold sickness’ was unable to be cured by the local doctors. It was known there was a tea maker whose special teas made people well again. The tea maker was summoned to bring his tea to the sick monk. The legend does not tell what became of the monk, nor for that matter what became of the tea maker, but the style of oolong has persisted through the decades and has become on of the predominant oolongs in China – noted for superb flavor and affordable price. The perfect afternoon tea, it should never be taken with milk, lemon or sugar.
