Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea originating from the Wuyi Mountains and Anxi district of the Fujian Province, with a history going back over centuries. Made from the leaves, stems and buds of the Camellia sinensis plant, Oolong teas are in a class of their own, being neither green nor black teas, but somewhere in between. The characteristics of a particular Oolong depend on how long the leaves have been allowed to oxidize, creating a diverse range of flavours.
Oolong teas are reputed to offer a vast range of health-giving benefits. As well as being a source of vitamins and minerals, they contain antioxidants such as polyphenols, that can play an important role in the prevention of some of today's common illnesses, such as heart disease and diabetes. They also help protect against free-radical damage. Regular consumption of Oolong tea is thought to help with weight loss by speeding up metabolism. It is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and been linked to improvements in skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis. It contains the amino acid, theanine, thought to promote feelings of calm and relaxation, and is also believed to be beneficial in increasing bone mineral density and strengthening tooth enamel.
