Oolong teas can be some of the most intriguing and complex of all brews. To produce oolong, the leaves are left to wilt naturally, but the moisture content is reduced until only the outer edges of the leaves have dried. When the desired oxidation is reached and the edges of the leaves are a golden brown, the leaf is then heated to stop the oxidation process and rolled to form its shape. This exceptional Chinese oolong is scented with naturally sweet, juicy oranges. If you are ready for a new twist on a classic, try this orange-scented oolong!
When flavoring ligher Oolongs, care must be taken so that the ingredients do not overpower the tea. The subtle hint of oolong, which pairs nicely with the orange flavor, is a product of the shorter fermentation period common to this type of tea. Like most teas, Oolong tea derives many of its health benefits from the powerful punch of antioxidants that are found within the tea. Oolong is said to be a helpful aid to weight loss.
