Oolong is a very special tea, produced in the Taiwanese mountains. After plucking, the teas are fermented by approximately 50% and then wilted in the sun. Frequent turning of the tea in bamboo baskets while drying allows the oolong to develop a mild aroma and a large, curled leaf. This tea exudes a leather-like aroma and the brew is dark, bold, and robust. After steeping, the still green leaf centre with the fermented leaf edges becomes clearly visible.
