The Chinese revere Dragons and they have great symbolism in the east. We think this fabulous Dragons Eye Oolong Tea is a drink to be admired and revered. It's a tea that sits somewhere between a black and a green tea and is mad of the finest Oolomg tea available. It's aromas and tastes are exotic and tropical with notes of safflower, stone fruits like peaches or apricots skilfully mixed with the smoky taste of the finest oolong tea.
This is truly a tea of outstanding quality for The Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen and one that should always be drunk on the Game of Thrones!
Benefits of drinking Oolong Tea
Oolong Tea is different to Green or Black tea in that it is only semi oxidised. This means it spends a certain amount of time in the strong sun where it withers and twists but does not go the full dark colour of black tea. The flavours vary widely depending on where the tea is cultivated and the length of time of firing the leaves.
Oolong tea may not be the first tea that springs to your mind when talking teas and is not as popular as green or black tea, but it has many similar health benefits. Some of the many benefits include
- Oolong tea may help prevent diabetes because the polyphenol antioxidants are thought to increase insulin sensitivity and reduce blood sugar
- It's thought that Oolong Tea increases your metabolism and decreases the amount of fat absorbed from your diet and as a binus the enzymes will help your body use stored fat for energy!
In addition, it may boost your metabolism, decrease your risk of developing type 2 diabetes and protect against certain types of cancer.
At the end of the day, oolong tea is an incredibly healthy and tasty addition to your lifestyle. Give it a try — you won't be disappointed.
