Oolong tea is popularly grown and consumed in Taiwan where there is an immensely strong tea culture. With intriguing names like 凍頂 (Dong Ding) or “Frozen Summit” and 東方美人茶 (Dong fang Mei ren) or “Oriental Beauty”, the types of oolong produced by the mountainous island are just as varied as its terrain and soil. The Taiwanese method of production differs a little from China, but generally, the making of oolong tea requires sunning and oxidation before fermentation and roasting.
