In history the Chinese drinking tea dates back about 4,000 years. The Chinese found the techniques to create oolong tea by fermenting, infusing tea with scent – flowers, fruit, and herbs.
The popular teas from China are: scented teas, oolong (Wu’long) and Green. The tea is brewed into small cup so that the taste can be enjoyed.
