Oolong tea

Organic oolong tea leaves are picked by hand, and then laid out to wither in the sun. Next, they’re moved indoors to rest, before being placed in large baskets. The baskets are shaken to break the leaf edges – releasing their sap, and encouraging fermentation.

Once this step is complete, the organic oolong tea leaves are left to ferment a bit more. Then, they’re roasted in large iron pans to halt the fermentation process. While the leaves are still hot, they are rolled to produce their distinctive shape. Finally, they are dried in baskets over a layer of hot charcoal.

The result is a semi-fermented tea that sits somewhere between organic black tea and organic green tea in its flavour and colour.
