Tea is definitely one of the healthiest drink in the world… However, all teas are different, and some might offer more benefits than the others…

The oolong tea combines the qualities of dark and green teas, giving it quite a number of interesting health benefits…

And when we speak of oolong tea, Taiwan is famous for its high mountain oolongs, all grown at altitudes higher than 1000 meters. High altitude, unique climate and cool weather bring complex floral, light and sweet flavors, often lasting for up to 10 infusions…

Oolong tea is made from the Camellia sinensis plant leaves, the very same plant used to make green tea and black tea. The difference is in how the tea is processed….

All tea leaves contain certain enzymes, which produce a chemical reaction called oxidation. Oxidation is what turns the green tea leaves into a deep black color…

Green tea is not allowed to oxidize much, but black tea is allowed to oxidize until it turns black. Oolong tea is somewhere in between the two, meaning it is partially oxidized and which is responsible for oolong tea’s color and characteristic taste….

It has been said that sipping oolong tea offers benefits for heart health, diabetes prevention, bone health, and weight loss, possibly due to the antioxidants thearubigins, theaflavins, and EGCG.

It is pretty common knowledge that Taiwan’s oolong tea is bred by historical skills, from tea tree breeding and pastoral planting to process improvement… They also specialise in kneading tea balls with cloth balls, slow-firing roasting, and compacting the balls which is part of the “Taiwan-style oolong process”. It is unique in the world and deeply affects the development of tea making around the world.
