Legend has it that this Oolong from Fujian Province in China was a gift from Tie Guan Yin (铁观音), the Iron Goddess of Mercy, then picked by monkeys trained by monks. Still, this moderately fermented tea (30-50%) shines with its balanced taste, its sweetness and the harmony of its jasmine and slightly mineral notes.
Oolong tea or Wu Long (乌龙, literally black dragon) also called blue-green tea, is a tea of Chinese origin (in particular from Fujian and Taiwan) whose whole leaves have the particularity of being withered and slightly rolled to promote their oxidative fermentation (or oxidation). Halfway between green tea (unfermented) and black tea (completely fermented), oxidation will give the tea its characteristic dark color and develop a great complexity of new aromas.
