Oolong Tea

In the tea world there are the green tea drinkers and the black tea drinkers. Green tea is best for health and a fresher flavor says one side. The other side insists that black tea is packed with antioxidants and that smokiness is superior. Oolong teas are the peacemakers that combine the distinctive qualities of both green and black tea. A middle ground everyone can agree on.

Out of stock

Oolong teas are teas that have been bruised right after picking and then allowed to oxidize and dry. The tea is then quickly fired, often in a hot wok, to give it a light toastiness. The result is a tea that lies somewhere between the brightness of green tea and the full-bodied flavor of black tea.

Spice Jungle’s loose leaf oolong tea leaves smell like the air in Joshua Tree, lingering of dry wood and ancient stone. The taste is mellow and sweet. It’s an inviting caramel-colored cup that is best enjoyed unadulterated by milk or honey (though a slip of dried orange peel can be quite a treat in wintertime).
