Green Tea is considered to be one of the healthiest beverages on the market. Uncle Lee's Tea is providing you with the finest tea leaves for your enjoyment and health.
Oolong Tea (literally translated as "Black Dragon") is what is known as a partially oxidized green tea (camellia sinensis), and has some of the qualities of both green tea and black tea. Uncle Lee's Oolong Tea in Bulk consists of high quality oolong harvested from the Fujian Province in China. Because our Oolong is not baked as long as Dark Oolong, the steeped tea has a light golden hue, sweet flora aroma, fresh initial flavor, and a sweet floral aftertaste which lasts after the sip. The rich flavor and fragrant aroma of our oolong tea result from an oxidizing action called "withering". This process is done by tumbling the tea, or otherwise bruising the surface of the leaves. This allows the tea to soften, releasing enzymes that darken the tea leaves when exposed to air.
Oolong Tea is a world famous natural health drink that is loaded with antioxidants and thus, many health benefits. It is a natural fat emulsifier and has approximately 15 to 55 mg caffeine per cup depending on the strength of the brew.
The fresh water used to steep this tea should be about 185 to 195 degrees F or 85 to 90 degrees C. Use approximately one teaspoon (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 8 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes is recommended with more or less time depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The tea leaves should uncurl for full flavor. When preparing this tea, the leaves can be used multiple times, until the flavor of the tea is exhausted. Each canister of Uncle Lee's Green Oolong Tea will yield approximately 50 to 75 servings.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I've recently added green tea to my diet and this oolong is the perfect blend to enjoy after yoga or meditation-I'm very pleased with the subtle and mild taste of Uncle Lee's tea. Thanks, Lindy
I have been drinking this tea for a couple of years now and it helped me to kick my "20 oz. of coffee a morning" addiction. It's got a mild flavor and I love using the tea leaf rather than the tea bags. It just seems so much more flavorful. I used to order this somewhere else, but found that iherb.com has the best prices!

I have gotten hooked on Oolongs and Uncle Lee's is a very good every day tea. It is not too light or too heavy, a nice happy middle with a good "Oolong" flavor with a reasonable price. Oolongs can get pricy. I am re-ordering today.

This is my first time purchasing oolong tea. It seems like a good value. Is dried and sealed in a foil type bag.
