If you want a tea that has the taste and aroma of both (black & green) then the clear choice for you is Oolong.
The oolong tea is in the middle. It is a marriage of classic black and green tea, which carries the taste, aroma and properties of both.
Oolong tea has high nutritional value because it is rich in antioxidants and it also contains vital minerals and vitamins such as calcium manganese, copper, carotin, selenium, and potassium, Vitamin A, B, C, E and K.

Aroma & Taste
Like green tea, light oolongs taste fresh and bright, and can manifest snappy vegetal and sunny-sweet flavors.
Are smoother than black tea, less grassy than green tea, and have an orchid-like balance and harmony.
But a kick of oxidation tends to bring out more floral characteristics, a rich, buttery body that lingers on your palate, and a rounded, airy quality more complex than your typical green tea.
The taste is reminiscent of ripe fruit, flowers and rainforest.
Most oolong teas are best prepared at a water temperature of 185°-206°F / 85-96 °C, with a steep time of about 3-5 minutes.
These suggested temperatures may vary depending on the type of oolong as well as the oxidation present in the dry leaf.
Oolong teas can be re steeped multiple times and unlike most other tea types, oolongs will improve and transform with each re-steeping.
In most cases, the 4th or 5th steeping is often the best.
For optimum results, you may want to increase the steeping temperatures slightly after the first few flushes to unlock more flavor potential.
It is also suggested that you use about 1 tsp per 8oz cup for rolled oolongs and 1 tbsp per 8oz / 28.34gr cup for longleaf oolongs.
A Small Tip
Most people leave this step out whenever they make any type of tea, but it’s actually pretty important to the best cup of tea.
Tea should be enjoyed at exactly the proper temperature.
When hot water is poured into a cold cup it will begin to cool quickly, which doesn’t allow the blend to steep properly.
keep it in a cool & dry place.
