There are certain estates which specialize in the production of oolong tea. The curly appearance and the rich aromas of the leaves are the result of hundreds years of experience. The leaves must undergo the controlled oxidization and several drying stages, before the experts decide for their final form.
The leaves are handpicked and undergo the heating stage to avoid oxidization. It is this process that helps them keep their green color and develop their taste. The tea leaves are then rolled or pressed to take their final form. Depending on the season, the climate and the soil, green tea leaves can give liquor that leaves slight bitterness, powerful marine or plant notes in the mouth.
The leaves turn almost black, when wet, due to the procedure of fermentation which reaches the level of 85%, in conditions of controlled temperature and humidity. Whole leaves undergo the procedure of drying during which they develop their final aromas and give high quality black tea, cut leaves are used to fill tea sachets.
The young, immature leaves and buds of the plant Camellia Sinensis are handpicked and forwarded to dry naturally, as quality leaves are not subject to fermentation.

THE PERFECT CUP OF TEA
The most important part of this procedure is for someone to choose the type of tea he needs. Salveotea offers loose tea leaves, or herbal tea blends, with rich aroma and taste for a special experience each time. We put the quantity of the tea we want (2-4gr/cup) in the teapot.
The water we use, is equally important. It should be clear with no foreign material or any odor. We put a lot of water in the boiler and when it boils, we wait until it reaches the right temperature for our tea. We then pour the water all over the tea leaves in the teapot. We let it stand for 4-8‘ depending on how strong we want the tea to be.
The tea leaves should be removed from the teapot, or if the teapot comes with its own built in filter, we serve the tea in every cup. The correct procedure is to have already heat the cups with a little warm water, so the temperature of the tea does not fall easily.
We add the sweetener of our choice, taking care not to turn a healthy drink into a regular sweet. A little brown sugar or a little honey is fine.
