Today I am enjoying some China Oolong Tea. According to the label, Oolong tea is sourced primarily from the Fujian Province in China and was first produced at the end of the Ming dynasty, about 400 years ago. Oolong teas are created by shaking the tea leaves during the picking process and then pan firing to semi-ferment the tea. I confess that I never think that much about how all the different teas are made and found this very interesting.
Thank you to Elizabeth for hosting this fun event, and thank you to everyone who has stopped by to read my ramblings and leave me a comment or two. Wishing you all a happy, healthy and creative 2014!
