Product Description


    Oolong tea gets its name from the Chinese wu-lung, which means, "Black dragon" and it represents a cross between green and black tea. Gaining more and more popularity in the US, once you try it, Formosa Oolong tea might quite possibly turn out to be your new favorite! Loaded with potential health benefits this is a beautiful tea with full, refreshing, fruity-sweet aromas and flavors to match. Like many things in the world, Oolong tea was discovered by accident. A Chinese gardener was getting ready to prepare his tea when a deer distracted him. He killed and prepared the deer and forgot all about his tea leaves. The next day when he rediscovered them, he thought they might have gone bad since they had started to change color, but he decided to finish the process anyway. After all the preparations were made, he sat to have his tea and realized that this was a much more flavorful and aromatic tea that what he had been drinking...and Oolong was born.

    Formosa Oolong teas are produced in Taiwan, next to China, and they produce the largest quantity of Oolong in the world. Leaves are plucked as the sun rises and then are laid out to wither in the hot sun. The leaves may be intentionally bruised slightly to stimulate the fermentation process. Tea artisans that are waiting for the perfect blend of red and green leaves watch over them carefully. The leaves are then dried, expertly graded and passed through strict quality control for packaging.

    Formosa Oolong teas have a long list of potential health benefits because they are only partially fermented and remain essentially in their natural state. Oolong tea leaves are full of antioxidants and polyphenols that, when drank daily, may protect you from serious illnesses such as cancer and heart disease.

    Formosa Oolong tea is also an excellent addition to your weight loss program. The combination of antioxidants and caffeine has been shown to speed up your metabolism without making you jittery the way other caffeinated beverages can. Formosa Oolong tea is an amazingly delicious beverage that is incredibly delicious served either hot or over ice. You can drink it throughout the day and know that you are benefiting your body with hydration, antioxidants and polyphenols. The eastern world has known the benefits of Formosa Oolong for generations and that may explain why the numbers of people who suffer from disease are staggeringly different than in the US.

    Formosa Oolong is like taking your medicine with a spoon full of sugar! Give your body something refreshing and rejuvenating with essential benefits your body needs all while enjoying a simple cup of tea.

    This gourmet tea is in loose-leaf form.
