The Organic Jian-young Oolong Tea is a traditional Chinese tea which can be sweet and fruity with honey aromas or woody and thick with roasted aromas or even green and fresh with bouquet aromas. This range of aromas depends on the style of production and the topography of the area the tea is grown.
This spectacular Oolong tea is made in a very intricate and precise way. It has to be bruised for just the right amount and the browning of the leaves has to be exact. This process has to be repeated many times to ensure it's basic but important steps are achieved.
The enjoyable aroma of this Jiangyong tea is only eclipsed by the delicious sipping and tasting that ensues.
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.
