Oolong - Semi-Fermented Tea

Oolong, in addition to being an excellent companion for moments of relaxation, has unique effects on the human body. It helps lower blood pressure and thanks to antioxidants and zinc protects the heart.

Oolong tea is a traditional Chinese tea and it originates from the province of Fuijan in China. The tea is obtained from the leaves, buds and branches of the Camellia Sinensis plant. This is the same plant that is used to make green tea, but the difference is in the way the tea is processed. Oolong tea can be consumed in China, Taiwan, Japan and India.

Oolong tea is made from the same plant from which green and black tea is made. However, oolong leaves are processed through oxidation, in which tea leaves are exposed to air. This causes the leaves to ferment and oxidize over time, giving the leaves taste, color, etc. Oolong teas are often formed into tightly rolled balls that gradually develop as the tea is soaked, making them suitable for multiple infusions.

Like black or green teas, oolong tea can be enjoyed hot or iced; temperature does not affect all the amazing health benefits. When making tea, let it brew for a full five minutes for maximum effectiveness.
