Oolong tea is a traditional tea cultivar from China that is produced in a distinct process that requires the leaves to oxidize in strong sunlight before being either curled or twisted for use. Prepare oolong tea by steeping 2 teaspoons of tea leaves into 1 cup of hot, but not boiling water (200-205°F). Steeping time varies from 3 to 10 minutes depending on desires for strength. High-quality oolong tea can be steeped up to five times; and unlike other teas, it improves in flavor and smell with continued steeping. It is considered that the third and fourth times the same tea bundle is steeped possesses the best qualities.
