  • Also, most manufacturers offer few to no oolong teas. But, wholesale distributors usually carry several oolongs, for even more variety in selection.

What Defines Oolong?

  • Oolong tea falls “in between” black tea and green tea.
    • After all, black tea leaves fully oxidize (brown) and green tea leaves don’t oxidize at all.
  • Meanwhile, oolong teas oxidize partially.
    • This puts oolong in its own tea category.
  • How long the leaves oxidize is up to the manufacturer, though.
    • So, some oolongs taste more like black tea and some taste like green tea.
  • Oolong tea also has a traditional shape.
    • It usually has “rolled” or “curled” leaves, because the rolling helps it oxidize just enough.
