Oolong Tea

The Name Oolong tea came to the English language, from China, meaning "Black Dragon Tea". However, dragons are mythical creatures so I chose instead the Panda.  There are a few widely accepted origins of oolong, one theory is that it was first produced in the Wuyi Moutains during the Qing dynasty.

The leaves are traditionally oxidized by the sun, and no extra flavours are added. Leaving the tea leaves to dry in the sun causes them to curl and twist. I wanted to capture the soothing and calming taste of the natural green tea through the tranquility of the natural surroundings.
