What is Oolong Tea?
The Oolong China tea is fermented longer than green tea, but shorter than black tea. Therefore, the oolong is also referred to as semi-fermented, or as the golden center of China tea. For the Oolong tea, the picked tea leaves are spread out in the sun to wilt. After a resting phase in the closed space, the oxidation takes place. To this end, the tea leaves are rubbed repeatedly by hand and shaken, so that the juice can escape and oxidize with oxygen. In the case of manual production of oolong, the oxidation process is controlled by heating the tea leaves in iron pans. It is up to the skill of the Teemanufaktur to achieve the perfect timing at Oolong manufacture. Depending on the length of the fermentation process, the taste of Oolong tea tends to be green tea or black tea. Its origin is the Oolong tea in the highlands of tea culture China in the province of Fujian, Chao'an and Guangdong. But also Oolong teas from the oolong gardens in Thaiwan (Luku, Hsinchu, Miaoli, Pinglin and Nantouzu) are among the best Oolong varieties in the world. Only recently have Oolong teas and Oolong tea blends from Kenya, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia and India, which partly differ from the original Oolong tea flavor.
How is Oolong made?
Both the classic Oolong tea and the Oolong tea mixtures can be poured several times. In China the Oolong tea is very elaborately prepared at the traditional tea ceremony. But also with the simple brewing method the Oolong tea develops its complete flavor bouquet. The optimal container for the Oolong China Tea is a clay pot, so that the tea can breathe. For a cup of tea, about three grams of oolong tea leaves (one teaspoon) are needed. The best tea aroma was when using natural mineral water with low water hardness. The water temperature should be between 85 and 95 degrees Celsius for infusion of Oolong China Tea. The hotter the water, the more intense the aroma of Oolong teas develops. This also applies to the brewing time. It is optimal for the first two infusions at 20 to 30 seconds and then extends per infusion by five seconds. Oolong tea lovers like to experiment with water temperature and brew time to discover the individual flavor diversity of the Oolong tea and the Oolong tea blends.
