Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea from the camellia plant. The same plant delivers different teas, depending on the part of the plant that's used. Different styles of oolong tea can vary widely in flavour. They can be sweet and fruity with honey aromas, or woody and thick with roasted aromas, or green and fresh with bouquet aromas. We recommend trying different ones and selecting the one that pairs best with your preferred chocolate.
