Our light roast oolong tea, also known as green oolong tea, is lightly oxidized and minimally roasted, resulting in a unique flavor profile that is delicate and fresh. The tea leaves are typically harvested from the Camellia sinensis tea plant and undergo minimal processing.
The tea has a light golden color and a floral, fruity aroma. It has a smooth and subtle taste, with notes of fresh vegetation and a slight sweetness. Light roast oolong tea is often described as having a “grassy” or “vegetal” flavor that is reminiscent of springtime.
Because light roast oolong tea is lightly oxidized and minimally roasted, it is higher in antioxidants and lower in caffeine than darker oolong teas. It is often enjoyed without any additional flavorings or sweeteners and can be brewed using hot water and a teapot or infuser.
Overall, light roast oolong tea is a refreshing and delicate tea that is perfect for those who prefer a lighter, more subtle flavor profile.
Organic tea is grown and processed without the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, or other chemicals. Our tea farmers use natural methods to enhance the soil, control pests, and maintain the health of their tea plants, which can result in a healthier and more sustainable product.
To ensure that tea is truly organic, look for certifications from reputable organizations, such as the USDA Organic seal, which confirms that the tea meets strict standards for organic farming and processing. Our tea is tested and certified by the Tse-Xin Organic certification company of Taiwan, a USDA-recognized certifier.
