WHAT IT IS The difference between regular green tea and oolong teas is the additional temperature treatment used to attain a special smoky, complex flavor. Green tea leaves are rolled, curled or twisted – and then baked, roasted and infused with the natural strawberry flavor.
FLAVOR NOTES The natural oxidation and roasting of oolong tea yields a complex taste that many compare to milk or cream. To create this Strawberrry Oolong Tea, tea leaves are infused with the natural strawberry extract. This results in a subtle, fruity aroma and flavor – which becomes even more pronounced when the tea is chilled.
BACKGROUND Oolong Tea became popular in ancient China during the Tang Dynasty (618 – 907 A.D.). This special way to treat green tea was devised to fill the gap between green and black tea, combining the health benefits of green tea and taste complexity of black tea.
