Black & Oolong Tea

Black teas can be malty, floral, smoky, brisk, fragrant and full-bodied. They are wonderful with the addition of sugar, honey, lemon, cream and milk. While black teas have more caffeine than green or white teas, they still have less than coffee.

 

Oolong is only partially oxidized after the fresh leaves are plucked and withered. Before the leaves are fully cured, a quick drying preserves the flavor and aroma of the green leaf and combines them with black tea characteristics that arise from the partial curing. Oolong has slightly less caffeine levels than black tea, but slightly more than green teas.
