Organic Oolong Tea
Organic Oolong Tea
Oolong tea is a traditional Chinese and Taiwanese style tea with a long history. These teas typically come from China’s Fujian province - like Sechung Oolong or Wuyi Da Hong Pao Organic Oolong Tea - and many are also grown on the Taiwanese mountainside, like Dong Ding Organic Oolong Tea. These teas are among the most challenging to produce due to a rigorous production process that bruises the tea leaves to breakdown the plant's cell walls. This process releases the flavor and perfects the oxidation level. Often the quality and flavor of Oolong tea depends upon the skills of the crafter who produces it. Because we hand-select all of our tea, we approach this most coveted variety with care and attention.
Choose traditional or blends of Oolong tea. Watermelon organic Oolong tea blends an organic watermelon flavor with fresh fruits, while the Anxi organic Oolong tea is highly prized, rare and considered a healthy addition to any diet.
Derived from the Camellia sinensis plant, Oolong tea undergoes an oxidization level that exceeds green tes but falls below that of black teas. Oolong tea leaves may be rolled into long curls, or pressed into a balls as you find in Dong Ding Oolong.
How the leaves are processed impacts the taste of your favorite Oolong tea. Different processing can create a wide array of tastes. Some Oolong tea may be floral or fruity with notes of melon, while others can range from a cleaner, grassy taste, to a buttery or roasted flavor. Oolong is among the finest teas in the world.
When it comes to health, Oolong is well-known to boost the metabolism. It’s a perfect combination of catechins and caffeine that makes this beverage one to try when on a weight loss regimen. These antioxidant and stimulant characteristics are necessary to raise your metabolism, and can do so even hours after you drink it. It might be a perfect boost in the morning or an afternoon pick-up.
Weight management can be made easier by incorporating Oolong tea because its polyphenols can help block fat-building enzymes. Oolong tea additionally may evoke a relaxing sensation to ease stress and promote a euphoric effect. These mood enhancers come from a high concentration of oils, drawn from the leaves during the production process. Oolong is useful to sip when detoxifying the body from alcohol and cigarette use and is considered the champagne of teas by many!
