Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea. It is also known as wu lung or wūlóng which means Black Dragon.
Oolong is a semi-oxidized tea (typically between 8 and 85%). It combines the qualities of dark and green teas, giving it several interesting flavor characteristics. It is full bodied in flavor and aroma, but depending on the oxidation level it can range from green and floral to dark and roasted.
