Almost exclusively produced in China and Formosa (Taiwan), oolong teas fall between the unfermented green teas and the fully fermented black teas. They are processed to be full-bodied teas and are therefore made from larger, more mature leaves.
Immediately upon plucking, the leaves are spread out in direct sunlight to wither. Known for their incredible weight loss abilities, Oolongs help burn fat, raise metabolism, and help suppress the appetite. Oolong teas can be steeped more than once, so don’t throw your leaves away till they have been fully awakened!
