Weight Loss with Oolong Tea

What Makes a Tea an Oolong Tea?
There are 3 main distinct types of tea which can be generally categorized as follows:
  1. Green Tea: is treated or boiled following picking to prevent the leaves from oxidizing and retaining their natural color.
  2. Black Tea: is left to oxidize following picking, that’s how it gets their distinctive color.
  3. Oolong Tea: the raw leaves are sun-wilted and then bruised, which exposes their juices to the air, so the leaves oxidize and start to turn brown like a cut fruit. They are allowed to oxidize only partially, giving them a rich, floral flavor. The tea is then dried fully; locking in the rich flavors that oolong tea is known to offer. Oolong’s unique drying process creates a tea that has many metabolic stimulating attributes.

Oolongs range from bright green and slightly fermented to dark-leafed and hearty. The greener varieties are less fermented. Oolong tea therefore comes in a wide range of tastes and aromas from teas very close in taste to green tea to those very close to black tea.

Health Benefits
