Properties and benefits of oolong tea blue

A few lines above we have commented that one of the main features of this tea is that its leaves turn a bluish color after passing through the oxidation process. But, why is it different from other types of tea that are left in brown or dark green? Mainly because it only suffers a 20% oxidation, but also because it begins to draw nothing more to be collected. This also gives you certain properties that are not found in other teas. We're going to talk about all of this.

We will begin, therefore, by the process of making this tea. You could say that this is very similar to that of black tea, but the difference lies in the time of the oxidation, since the tea blue is very much lower than that of the first. Hence, their flavor is mild and fruity, and its colour is not as intense as the black tea, but is more orange in some varieties, even light yellow, becoming closer to that of white tea.

In fact, its flavor might remind some varieties of white tea. In addition, with this type of tea, it also saves a similarity in the degree of caffeine, since that is much lower than that of black tea or red tea, although some varieties do have something more of the amount the green tea.
