This loose leaf, high grown tea, also known as Bai Hao Oolong, is picked when the leaves are young and the buds are just beginning to unfurl. After being picked, these leaves are fermented and then wilted in the sun, where they are turned in bamboo baskets throughout the drying process. The result is a lovely smooth tea, with great flavours and wild aromas.
The leaves of Oolong Silvertip Fancy tea are exposed to a specific level of humidity and temperature during the fermentation process that triggers the oxidation process and gives the tea its unique flavour profile, a delicate balance of sweet and floral notes with a hint of nuttiness.
Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea originating from the Wuyi Mountains and Anxi district of the Fujian Province, with a history going back over centuries. The characteristics of a particular Oolong depend on how long the leaves have been allowed to oxidize, creating a diverse range of flavours. Teas that undergo 10-45% oxidation are more like green teas, with fresh and delicate flavours and aromas, whereas those further oxidized by 40-70% become more like black teas.
