It is said that a farmer who was picking Camellia Sinensis tea saw a deer appear in his garden. To avoid a disaster on his plantation, he pursued the animal and forgot about the leaves he had just picked.
The next morning, he realised that the forgotten tea crop had changed colour and was releasing a pleasant aroma. He tried infusing the leaves, and thus created Oolong tea.
Due to the tone of oxidation between green and black, with bluish tints, Oolong tea is also called blue tea in France.

Transport & Storage
Oolong tea is called “blue tea” in several countries. This name refers to the bluish colour of the leaves when they are prepared and not to the colour of the infusion, as some people imagine.
Unlike other teas, the leaves are picked when they are more mature, up to the "fourth leaf" of the tea plant. To prevent the oxidation process of the top-quality organic Oolong tea from extending too far, it is vacuum-packed in the country of origin and that is how the characteristic blue colour is set.
In the Himalayas, there is an exceptional tea called "Himalayan FTGFOP1 Orange Hill 1st Flush BIO".
The harsh climate of the Himalayan Mountains gives this exceptional tea its special character. Careful handwork preserves the beautiful structure and allows the light tips of the leaves to shine through under the lightly baked, dark leaves.
Brewed to give a light yellow, clear cup with mild-nutty, slightly roasted flavor. Once brewed, you have a delicate, yellow-coloured cup with a floral note. Only a few kilos of this tea are produced every year.
