Oolong tea has a full bodied, woody flavor with sweet, earthy tones. This is the only tea that actually improves by steeping the tea more than one time. Save your bag to enjoy several cups.
Oolong Tea Health Benefits #1:
Act as antioxidants.
A 2003 study conducted by Kenichi Yanagimoto compares green tea, oolong tea and black tea for their antioxidant activities.
He found green tea to be the most potent antioxidant, followed by oolong tea, then black tea.
Green tea blocked oxidation by almost 100% over 40 days.
Oolong tea blocked oxidation by 50% over 15 days.
Oolong Tea Health Benefits #2:
Promote weight loss.
Oolong tea has a reputation for weight loss, and rightly so.
Scientific studies have found that it does so by increasing metabolism, burning fat and blocking dietary fat absorption.
Oolong Tea Health Benefits #3:
Promote heart health.
Oolong tea is good for the heart in several ways.
A 2007 American study found that it reduces blood concentrations of triglycerides (the most common form of fat that exists in the body) by a whopping 80% compared to rats on normal diet.
Another 2001 Japanese study found that it reduces cholesterol after 1 month of regular drinking.
A 2004 Japanese study conducted by Osaka City University found that oolong tea increases plasma adiponectin levels.
Low levels of plasma adiponectin are associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus and coronary artery disease (CAD).
The study concluded that oolong tea may have beneficial effects on the progression of atherosclerosis in patients with CAD.

DIRECTIONS: Use 6 oz of water for each tea bag. Pour hot water over tea and steep for 5 minutes. Covering the cup with a saucer during steeping will retain the most nutrients. Never boil botanicals. Steep longer if desired, or reuse tea bag for a second cup. Sweeten to taste with honey or stevia if desired. Garnish with orange, lemon, or a stevia leaf.
