Oolong Tea

Oolong was discovered in the Wuyi province of China in the sixteenth century and was often pressed into tea bricks or tea cakes. Americans in the eighteenth century purchased tea from this region in this form, which preserved it for travel. When cakes fell out of fashion and loose tea was preferred, the more modern form of oolong was produced. Oolong tea is processed to create tea with characteristics of both green and black tea, with an obvious sweet and nutty aroma. The tea is withered in the strong sun, before twisting, curling and drying. Tin contains 20 tea bags.
