About Amber Oolong

Tightly Curled, Brown, Dry Leaves
Amber Oolong Select
from Upton Tea
Amber oolong is a style of oolong tea popular in Taiwan that is darker than jade oolong but still lighter than many oolongs. Different sources claim that the level of oxidation is about 20-40%. [1,2] These "oxidation percentages" are arbitrary and subjective estimates, not measurable values. Amber oolongs tend to have a robust, earthy flavor, but still have some of the greener character of the lighter oolongs.

Amber oolong is made of the same cultivar of tea plant as Tie Guan Yin oolong. [2]
