Light Oolong Tea Sample Pack
Light oolongs undergo short fermentation times and are most similar to green tea, although a little more complex. Our light oolong collection will greet you with fresh, floral, and somewhat creamy flavors.
Making oolong tea requires some of the most artisanal and sophisticated skills. Oolong tea artisans are much like boutique winemakers. Oolong tea can only be made from certain types of tea bushes growing in specific geographical regions. The production methods of oolong are known only to a few tea cultivation regions in the world. Experts categorize and understand oolong by its region, age, bush varietal, and season of harvest. Just like wine.
Try these four excellent light oolongs to discover your favorite.
