Oolongs are semi-oxidised teas, meaning that the time spent withering, rolling and oxidising is much shorter than in black tea production, resulting a light but full-bodied flavour. Originating in China’s Fujian province, Chinese tea professionals refer to Oolong Tea as ‘Blue-Green Tea’ because of the intriguing colour of the leaf. The production of authentic oolongs dates back to the end of the Ming dynasty and is restricted to a few regions of China and Taiwan where artisan production techniques are still used. The Newby oolong tea collection includes loose-leaf teas and tea bags, including the popular milk oolong as well as flavours including ginseng, each one produced in just a few regions of China and Taiwan where artisanal production techniques are still used.
