What is Oolong Tea?
Let’s face it, not all would be fond of Oolong tea. It is a traditional Chinese tea, and since it is very uncommon in the West, it doesn’t have an English name counterpart. It falls somewhere between green and black tea in terms of oxidation level. You can have this by withering the leaves under the sun. After letting them oxidize, you can now heat them up to halt the process. And there you have it! Oolong tea with complex flavors that can range from sweet and floral to earthy and smoky. This flavor goes with the tanginess and slightly acidic flavor of peach.
Ingredients of Peach Oolong Tea
Oolong tea is a great choice to experiment it can almost go with anything, especially with the tropical flavor of peach. To create peach oolong tea at your home, be sure to prepare the following ingredients:
