History

 

The Wu Long tea, also known as blue-green or semi-oxidized tea, occupies a unique position midway between green and red teas. Similar to red teas, the initial stage involves withering, followed by rolling and oxidation, with alternating cycles until the desired degree of semi-oxidation is achieved. This oxidation process happen in a controlled environment devoid of light, at a warm temperature. This semioxidation process categorizes Wu Long teas into four distinct families based on their oxidation levels: 5 to 15%, 20 to 30%, 30 to 40%, and 60 to 70%. Subsequently, many Wu Long teas undergo roasting to enhance their toasted flavor profiles. The finest Wu Long teas hail from the provinces of Fujian, Guangdong, and Taiwan, where specialized techniques have been honed to perfection over generations. One noteworthy variant is Milky Oolong tea, also known as Jin Xuan, named after the cultivar TTES12. Developed in 1980 by the Tea Research & Extension Station in Taiwan, this tea stands out for its unique production process. Characterized by pickled leaves and semi-oxidized characteristics, the leaves undergo steaming over milk, imparting a distinctive creamy flavor profile.

Wu Long literally translate to 'black dragon'. Legend has it that one day a tea farmer was walking in his garden in Fujian looking for some new flavor. Immersed in his thoughts he saw a black snake emerging from the depths of a tea tree, Believing it to be a sign, he sampled the leaves and thus birthed the first Wu Long. While this tale may be steeped in legend, Brindi and I were not going to pass on such occasion to bring the red dragon spirit back into the brewery and embrace its myth and culture.
