What makes the Oolong Tea from Our Brainstorming Bonbon so Special?

One of the most special varieties of Chinese tea in our Bonbons is Oolong. Here we outline what makes Oolong so unique.

Oolong tea – used in Tea Plays' 'Brainstorming' Bonbon – is semi-fermented black tea. Oolong is known in China for its special aroma and is made only with particular varieties of tea plant and only in certain regions of the country. Oolong tea is also known for the time-consuming process needed to make it.

Rotating: A special operation unique to the processing of Oolong tea

Friction between people is stressful – friction between tea leaves helps to make Oolong! Rotating is only used in Oolong tea processing. It causes friction between the leaves and changes the cellular organization at the edge of the leaves. It allows a limited amount of fermentation to happen. This period is the most important step in forming the Oolong fragrance – it is also when the special color appears, with the green leaves beginning to take on red hue.

Fragrance: The soul of Oolong tea

Among Oolong teas groups, Minnan, Minbei, Fenghuang-Dancong and Taiwan Oolong tea are most favored by Chinese consumers. In our Tea Bonbons, we chose Fenghuang-Dancong for you – this variety is famous for its unique way of changing fragrance as it infuses. It has had a great worldwide reputation since the mid-19th century. The best teas labeled Fenghuang-Dancong are recognizable by their strong scents of flowers, fruit and honey.

Health benefits: Why do we drink Oolong tea?

Similar to other teas, Oolong tea contains a lot of stimulants. Thanks to its semi-fermented nature it has the functions of both unfermented tea and fermented tea. We hope that our Bonbons can help you in the following ways:

Anti-fatigue:

Oolong can't do your day job for you – but it can help you stay lively while you do it! Past studies have shown that Oolong tea can help decrease symptoms of excessive tiredness such as headache and eyestrain. Useful as a way of keeping focus while you face the daily grind, Oolong tea can also bring relaxation even as it helps make you perkier.

Beauty:

Oolong tea won't give you eternal youth – but it can help you hang on to yours a little longer! It has the benefits of anti-oxidation (anti-aging), anti-hyperlipidemia (cholesterol control) and weight loss.
