Oolong means semi fermented. They are manufactured very similar to black teas, but are given a much shorter withering period, a light roll (according to the type of oolong being made), and then allowed to ferment only until the edges of the leaf's start to turn brown. The tea is then fired which arrests the fermenting process and captures the interesting character associated with Oolong tea. Se Chung Oolong has a shorter fermentation time than other Oolongs from Fujian province resulting in more subtle Oolong character. There are delicate notes of Ti Kuan Yin style flavor combined with a slight herbaceous green character. This is why this particular tea is sought after - delicate flavor notes of a top Oolong combined with green tea characters.
