Oolong (wulong) are semi-oxidized teas classified between green and black tea. The production of this type of tea is more involved than any other, requiring many steps and great care. Their leaves range from bright green to brownish in color and are usually larger in appearance. Because of the leaf style Oolongs lend themselves to additional infusions and, until the leaves fully open, they may even yield more than six steepings. They produce a very aromatic beverage with an array of interesting flavors.
The greener Oolongs, that are not cut by rolling, are less oxidized than the traditional oolongs, but more so than green teas, and are referred to as Pouchong teas.
