Oolong tea: unique story

This tea does not come from India, China or Japan, but from the island of Taiwan. Thousands of years ago, the tea leaves were folded there in such a way that they resembled small kites. In Taiwan (formerly Formosa), people christened the tea "wu long", which means "black dragon". And over time, the term “oolong” developed from “wu long”. In addition to Taiwan, Indonesia, Nepal and China are now also producing very good Oolong tea. In our online shop you can order Oolong as a tea bag or as loose tea, all varieties have different degrees of intensity in taste and rely on the finest secondary aromas such as almonds and hazelnuts, collards and roasted walnuts, sweet almonds and honey or floral fruits. Only here and that does a slightly bitter note shimmer through, which rounds off the aroma and makes it perfect. Do not pour boiling water over oolong tea, but let it cool down to 85 to 90 degrees for a few minutes.
