The Benefits of Drinking Oolong Passion:Ã‚Â
Oolong tea, sometimes written as wu long or wulong,Ã‚Â means Ã¢â‚¬Å“black dragon teaÃ¢â‚¬Â. Other descriptions are Ã¢â‚¬Å“blue teaÃ¢â‚¬Â or semi fermented tea. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s neither black or green tea, but rather, it falls into its own category. It represents true artisan mastery of processing tea. Both China and Taiwan are claimed as origins of Oolong tea. Taiwan boasts the most famous oolongs as they are traditionally less oxidized and greener in color than Chinese Oolong. Oolong Tea represents only 2% of the world tea.Ã‚Â
Oolong is produced by allowing the tea to wither under the sun and oxidize before curling and twisting. The oxidation can range from 8%-80% depending on the variety and production.Ã‚Â

What Does Oolong Passion taste like?Ã‚Â
A light perfumey taste with hints of fresh cut grass and has a well rounded green flavor. The blood orange peel and passion fruit powder allow for a sweet and citrus flavor to come through giving this time a bright summery taste that can be enjoyed year round. Oolong has characteristics that are very similar to both black and green tea. This leads to a delightful flavor profile.
Ã‚Â Due to the varied levels of oxidation around the world, oolong teas can have dramatically varied flavor profiles. Oolong teas that have been oxidized for longer, have a more robust, woodsy and earthy notes. While tea that has been oxidized for a shorter amount of time is sweeter and has a more floral flavor profile.Ã‚Â
