OOLONG TEA PAIRINGS…

Organic Oolong Tea Sampler

‘Phoenix Supreme’ Oolong tea is picked from bushes that grow on the Wudong peak of Phoenix Mountain in Guarngdong Province, China.

It is made in small batches by and expert tea master and gathered twice a year, between April and May, and October and November.

It has a fragrant fruity aroma and a smooth, very refreshing flavour.

Oolongs can range in character between green and black teas, many can be paired with food along the same lines as their green or black counterparts. For instance, greener oolongs tend to go well with scallops, lobster and other sweet rich foods, while darker oolongs compliment somewhat stronger-flavored foods such as duck and grilled meats.

Not a green tea fan? Well the good news is that you don’t need to drink this to help with weight loss as they have now found that ‘Oolong’ tea helps even more.

A Chinese study showed that if we drink oolong tea for six weeks it will help with weight loss. In fact the data confirmed that a component other than just caffeine was responsible for promoting the preferential use of fat as an energy source.

A further Japanese study compared the benefits of oolong tea and green tea on weight loss. The results were that after drinking oolong tea you will use more energy than if you were drinking green tea or water and that it can last up to two hours.

For the best results they suggest you have a cup of oolong around 30 minutes to 1 hour before you do any form of exercise or walk, and drink it in the afternoon to help late afternoon sweet cravings and energy slumps.
