About Oolong Tea
Partially oxidized tea yielding a mild aromatic flavor between that of black and green tea, Oolong tea is commonly served as the house tea in Chinese restaurants in the US.
Combining elements of green and black tea processes, Oolong tea is semi-fermented. The processing of this tea keeps moisture within the leaves for a longer period of time than the green tea leaves. After wilting, the usually larger, older leaves are carefully rolled around on rattan trays in order to "bruise" their outer edge. The black outer and green inner parts of the leaf give this tea its characteristic qualities. The flavor is usually a light brown and can sometimes reveal a slight fruity taste. Quality Oolong teas have been brewed up to 10 times but produce a full body taste and aroma.
Oolong teas almost have no trace of bitterness and generally have a stronger aroma than almost any black or green tea. Like dark chocolate, oolong tea is rich in antioxidants known as polyphenols, which are good for cardiovascular health and an overall sense of well being. Oolongs are prized teas sought out for their unique character. Oolong teas are made by allowing the leaves to partially oxidize before and during drying. The flavor and aroma of tea varies with soil, climate, method of drying and storage, much as wine grapes vary.
Herbal remedies have been used for thousands of years, in all cultures. In this day and age Western Bulk Herbs and Spices should be regarded as an added element to present-day healthcare, and not as a replacement. Botanical herbs ( Teas ) emphasize harmony, support, and balance.
