Oolong tea is between a green and black tea. The production
of valuable oolong requires time, tradition, and careful craftsmanship.
Several sub-varieties of oolong, including those produced in the Wuyi
Mountains of northern Fujian and in the central mountains of Taiwan,
are among the most famous Chinese teas. Different varieties of oolong
are processed differently, but the leaves are formed into two distinct
styles. Some are rolled into long curly leaves (plank rolled), while the
others are ‘wrap-curled’ into small beads each with a tail.
