Description of Oolong Tea:
“The raw leaves are sun-wilted and then bruised, which exposes their juices to the air, so the leaves oxidise and start to turn brown like a cut fruit. They are allowed to oxidise only partially, giving them a rich, floral flavour. 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.” [Source]
Tea has now replaced coffee and espresso in my diet. My favorite variety happens to be the Golden Oolong made by Teas’ Tea. I order it from Amazon via Amazon Prime, and it ends up being roughly $2.00 per bottle delivered. Equal to the cost of a cup of coffee, half the cost of an espresso drink.
Reasons I like Golden Oolong:
- Smooth taste, not bitter
- 1/3 the caffeine in coffee
Amazon ships boxes of Golden Oolong in packs of 12 bottles. Shipping is free if you have Amazon Prime, and free if your order is $25 or over. I’m not sure how long they can afford to keep shipping 15lb boxes of tea, but until they raise the price, I will keep ordering.
