What is Oolong tea?
Oolong Tea also called by the Chinese blue or blue green tea by reference to its leaf which oscillates blue and green when the leaf is infused. Oolong Tea is a tea that is semi-fermented, the fermentation was interrupted during the process. For Oolong tea, more ripe leaves are used, which therefore contain less tannins and theines. Our selection of Oolong comes from Fujian.
We will let the leaves wilt in the sun for a few hours, then we will put them in the shade, to start the fermentation process.
The next step is sweating, it is a very important step for the Oolong, in a room maintained at a temperature at 25 ° c with a humidity level varying between 85% and 90%, the leaves will be brewed. This is where the aromas will express themselves. The degree of fermentation will depend mainly on the desired sweating. In China the fermentation is around 10 to 15%. This allows for very light, vegetable and slightly woody flavors. To stop the fermentation we will practice a roasting which will stop the enzymatic reaction, responsible for the fermentation. it is the same operation operation that one operates for green tea.
