March Tea Tasting Event
"Oo-nbelievable" Oolongs!
Conducted by Many Rivers Staff
Saturday, March 21, 2 pmFree/By Donation

Rescheduled from February!

Made from the leaves, buds and stems of the Camellia sinensis plant, oolong teas are semi-oxidized, the category between non-oxidized green teas, and fully oxidized black teas, giving oolongs a broad range of tastes in between black and green tea. Once the leaves of oolong are plucked, and "bruised" so as to break the cell walls on parts of the leaf, which releases oil etc., the oxidation process can range anywhere from 10 to 85 percent, depending on the specific variety and aim of the artisan tea-maker. Oolongs are the only type of tea subject to such a broad range of fermentation. Some varieties and styles provide a darker and "woody" tasting cup, whereas other varieties produce a lighter, more floral tasting brew. Come and taste for yourself! Our tea tastings are fun, convivial events.
