Description

Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea (Camellia sinensis) produced through a unique process including withering the plant under the strong sun and oxidation before curling and twisting. Most oolong teas, especially those of fine quality, involve unique tea plant cultivars that are exclusively used for particular varieties. The degree of oxidation can range from 8 to 85%,

The taste of oolong is sweet and fruity with honey aromas, green and fresh with bouquet aromas.

The name oolong tea came into the English language from the Chinese name (Chinese: 烏龍茶), meaning "black dragon".

The oolong variant of Darjeeling tea has two distinct types: clonal and China. The China type is more similar to Taiwan oolong and the clonal type is totally different from it.

Darjeeling oolong is lighter than usual Darjeeling black tea during first flush, as it is semioxidized. The cup looks light orange and infusion remains greenish yellow. Darjeeling oolong in second flush is more accepted worldwide. It is more thick in cup and dark orange in liquor with distinct muscatel flavours. This oolong has distinct flowery or spicy taste, so is not as well accepted as Darjeeling oolong worldwide.

Not all Darjeeling gardens are qualified to produce Darjeeling oolong.

Darjeeling oolong teas are made from finely plucked leaves, usually two leaves and a bud, and are withered naturally in sun and air. The withered leaves get hand-rolled and pan-fired at certain temperatures. This can also be done in machine: withered in trough, lightly rolled in a rolling machine and fired at 220 °C in a quality dryer with faster run-through, depending on the leaves used.

Oolong in general contains caffeine. Though the caffeine content in tea vary based on terroir, when the leaf is plucked, and the production processes.

Health benefits

Consuming oolong tea may help eczema and other inflammatory skin conditions including psoriasis.

The increase in fat oxidation is amazing! Drinking oolong tea can actually tell your body to burn fat for energy! Scientists then speculated that caffeine combined with EGCGs worked together to increase fat oxidation.

A Japanese study, conducted in 2003, went one step further
 comparing the benefits of oolong tea and green tea on weight reduction. These results indicate that after consuming oolong tea you will expend more energy than if you were to drink green tea or water and that it can last up to two hours
