Oolongs are full-bodied teas with a fragrant flavor and fruity, sweet aroma. Most Oolong teas come from China and Taiwan, where the finest varieties are still handmade following the traditional manufacturing process.
Health Benefits: Studies show that oolong tea, rich in antioxidants, promotes healthy teeth, skin and bones and can help to lower cholesterol, protect against heart disease and aid in digestion and weight loss. Since oolong tea contains a significant amount of polyphenol (known as tannin), it is believed to account for the lower risk of cancer in tea drinkers because of its ability to help DNA cells to accurately reproduce.
