The oolong tea originated from China, but like many other teas, India did not lag behind in the goodness of tea. Himalayan Oolong tea and many oolong teas in India are quite different from each other. In fact, the same pluck of oolong rolled, curled, and twisted can taste completely different from each other.
Oolong tea has a variety of flavors frequently compared to that of the different flavors of wines. Many wine tasters have gone on to taste the variations in oolong flavors and declared the taste notes to be like the different taste notes of the same wine. Oolong teas are a class by themselves and fall into the category of Speciality teas.
A wulong plucking is not possible until a new sprig has ended its new growth. The Chinese refer to this point as the ya zhu; Indian tea makers call this the bhanji stage of growth. In the case of Wulong tea, the plucking standard can include up to four or five leaves. ( See Blog post on Ayurveda Speciality Teas).
Just like wine competitions in France, New Zealand & Australia, there are oolong competitions across Asia to honor the artisanship of oolong tea producers. The contestants compete with each other to uphold the importance, history, and culture of oolong tea and its craftsmanship more than for the cash rewards.

Ingredients: Himalayan Oolong tea
Method /Process of making Himalayan Oolong tea
The preparation of oolong tea depends on the type of tea you are buying. Different types of teas require different brewing temperatures and steeping time.
You will need
- Fresh hot spring water at 85 degrees
- 1 teaspoon of Himalayan oolong tea
- A clean cup or glass
- A spoon
- Honey is optional and better than sugar due to its anti-bacterial properties
The steeping temperature can vary. Generally, a time range for 4-5 minutes (or 3-4 minutes if you prefer lighter) at a temperature of 85 degrees is ideal.
1. Use a teaspoon of loose leaf for 150ml water, adjust the ratio according to the amount of tea you’re making
2. Figure out the best steeping time, by tasting at different steep timings. If you prefer you may taste your Himalayan oolong tea in between to figure out the flavor and taste notes that work best for you.
3. You can steep Himalayan oolong tea 2-3 times or more provided you don’t over-steep your tea.
How to store Himalayan Oolong tea
The more oxidized the tea is, the longer its shelf time or storage time. Himalayan oolong tea can be stored up to 24 months
Store your oolong tea in a cold and dark place away from items like spices and coffee that could leach their flavors in the tea. It is also a good idea to store your tea in an opaque and airtight jar.
A word of caution
Any tea taken in excess of that 3 cups is likely to be harmful to you. Drinking more than 4 cups of oolong tea per day can cause side effects due to the caffeine present and can range anywhere from headaches, vomiting, diarrhea to heartburn. Too much tea can also lead to high blood pressure due to caffeine.
Store your tea in a cool dark place between 15-18 degrees celsius.
