The flavors of Fujian with this green Oolong tea
The consumption of Oolong teas continues to grow around the world. Oolong tea leaves are grown in China and Taiwan. They undergo a process of oxidation more or less advanced depending on the type of tea desired: low oxidation for an Oolong reminiscent of green tea and high fermentation for an Oolong close to black tea. Our Chinese green Oolong comes from the Fujian mountains. The leaves are rolled to preserve the flavors and benefits. This tea is slightly oxidized, which gives it a fresh taste and floral notes. It produces a smooth and light colored infusion with a low theine content for a light cup.
Benefits and virtues of green oolong tea
Teas with low oxidation, such as white tea or Oolong, better preserve the beneficial effects of the plant. The production method of our tea allows it to preserve its polyphenol content. These antioxidants offer multiple health benefits. Indeed, they fight against the oxidation of your cells, accompany you in your weight loss and help you maintain a good health. Moreover, our organic Tie Guan Yin contains little caffeine, so its consumption is possible for the most sensitive tea drinkers.
