About Blue Tea A Delicate Chinese Tea Made With Loose Leaf
Also known as Oolong tea – this tea has a great depth of flavour and is also really good for you. Like all tea it comes from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant. It sits in between Green tea and Black tea on the oxidisation chart. So if it is happy medium you are looking for … a balance of goodness and flavour, this is the tea for you…. Not as robust as black tea, but fuller in flavour then Green. Not as stuffed full of anti oxidants as Green Tea but retaining lots more of these than Black Tea. Blue tea still needs careful treatment – 80°C is hot enough thanks!
