Oolong tea in Chinese means "wu","black" and "lung" dragon and comes from camilla sinensis, the same plant that produces black tea and green tea and it is only partially oxidized in the manufacturing process. The flavor of oolong teas is typically not as robust as blacks or as subtle as greens, but has its own extremely fragrant and intriguing tones. Oolongs are often compared to the taste and aroma of fresh flowers or fresh fruit. Furthermore, oolongs can be steeped several times, with each successive infusion having its own distinctive taste and fragrance. Their delicate taste makes oolong teas ideal for casual drinking while also making them suitable for drinking with a meal. These teas have a lower level of caffeine, as it is the lower, older leaves that are used.
