Oolongs Teas are unique due to processing. They are semi-fermented and fall between un-fermented green tea and fermented black tea in intensity.The leaves are formed into one of two styles. Some are rolled into long curly leaves, while others are 'wrap-curled' into small beads, each with a tail. The former style is the more traditional of the two.

Murchie's Oolong Tea Bars - made from leaves that are more lightly oxidized than traditional Shui Hsien and briefer roasting, resulting in a more floral cup. The bars are simply made from compacted leaves. This is a very old method once used to transport tea as bars or bricks did not take up as much room.
Delicate and refreshing, this semi-fermented Oolong tea has a lovely ripe peach overtone and a fragrance comparable to that of Jasmine. The leaves of this mild soothing brew can support multiple infusions, making it perfect for Gongfu style preparation.
