Oolong, which means black dragon in Chinese, refers to a partly fermented tea made from the Camellia sinensis plant, where the fermentation process is interrupted before completion. The freshly picked tea leaves are left outside in the sun to dry. At a certain point after they begin to wither and oxidise, this process is interrupted by quickly roasting them at high temperatures. The result is a quality tea of heavenly flavour and character in look and taste, it is somewhere between a green tea and a black tea. The colour of the cup varies between bright yellow and orange.
