Oolong or Wulong teas are the most time-consuming teas to create. They utilize all of the five basic steps of tea production: plucking, withering, rolling, oxidizing and firing. These teas are anywhere from 8% to 80% oxidized. Over the course of many hours (sometimes days), what is created is a beautiful layering or "painting" of aroma and flavor. Oolongs typically have a much more complex flavor than Green or White teas, with very smooth, soft astringency and rich in floral or fruity flavors.
