Loose Leaf Chinese Oolong Tea

Tea production in Fujian province is concentrated in two regions: the Wuyi Mountains and Anxi County (Pheonix Mountains). Both are major historical centers of oolong tea production in China. Oolong tea developed in Fujian province, historically it can be traced back 1,000 years to an traditional form of tribute tea made for the Emperor and Royal Family called Beiyuan tea – compressed cakes of “wax tea” or lacha. Beiyuan tea was the earliest known tribute tea produced during the Song Dynasty (960–1279AD) however its origins date back to the earlier Tang Dynasty (618-907AD). There are a few versions of how Wulong tea received its name. The most likely naming origin was that the dragon, in Chinese mythology, is closely associated with the phoenix thus a new tea for the Royal Family would also need an esteemed name thus dragon (Long). It has been said that the oolong tea is dark, long and curly. Wu is a word that denotes the color black thus the tea being called Black Dragon Tea (Wulong – oolong). The reality may never be known. Oolong tea is a semi-oxidized type of tea that fills the gap between green tea (non-oxidized) and black tea (fully oxidized). Oxidation levels of oolong tea range from roughly 10% (very green) to 70% (heavily oxidized). Oolong teas are generally considered to be the most complex type of tea, combining qualities of both green tea and black teas, creating a very different experience. While the finest green tea and black teas are made from young, tender buds and one or two leaves, oolong teas undergo more mechanical stress during processing and more mature leaves are often used (3 or 4 leaves and a bud). The processing of oolong tea consists of 5 main steps: Withering & bruising – First Firing (Roasting) – Rolling – Second Firing (Drying) – Sorting & Grading.

Oolong Tea is a semi fermented tea that is combined with the goodness of green tea (non-fermented or lightly fermented) and black tea (fully fermented). It not only gives you a clear and delightful fragrance of green tea but also the refreshing and strong lingering after taste of black tea.

Golden Ocean Brand Oolong tea is produced in Fujian Province. It has a tight and strong shape accompanied by an oily brown-green colour which combines with a strong fresh taste. The tea offers you an excellent and lasting aroma similar to the aroma of an orchid.


Use a Yixing (purple clay) tea pot - this is the best way to enjoy this tea. Put 10 grams into a tea pot. Use water at 100°C (212°F). Let steep for 1 minute for the first time. Increase the steeping time for each subsequent brewing. It is good for up to 5 infusions. It is important not to steep too long or over brew.

Using Tea cup: 1-2 teaspoons per 6oz (180ml) cup. Use water at 100°C (212°F). Let steep for 3-4 minutes before drinking. Do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once water level is low – add more water, and so on, until the tea flavour is exhausted. Note - It is important to have the correct temperature as if the water is too hot then sugars degrade and if too cold the protein content does not extract properly.
