Oolong Tea

Oolong Tea is a semi fermented White Tea that is used for weight loss and to aid a variety of ailments. They have been rolled so that the juices of the leaf start to ferment on contact with the air. Oolong Tea, also known as Wu Long or Wu Yi Long have a very delicate colour and flavour and are thought to aid weight loss by stimulating your metabolism and suppressing your appetite.

Grown high in the pristine mountain air of the Himalayans, this remarkable semi-fermented Nepal tea combines the characteristics of a high-grown Darjeeling and a soulful Oolong. The oxidation process of this entirely handmade Oolong has been carefully monitored by the estate manager and stopped at about 40%, just at the peak of its aromatic bouquet.

Health Benefits: Studies show that oolong tea, rich in antioxidants, promotes healthy teeth, skin and bones and can help to lower cholesterol, protect against heart disease and aid in digestion and weight loss. Since oolong tea contains a significant amount of polyphenol (known as tannin), it is believed to account for the lower risk of cancer in tea drinkers because of its ability to help DNA cells to accurately reproduce.
