Oolong tea is one of the most popular types of tea - and the Four Seasons Oolong is a unique variety of this tea. With Spring here, we decided that it would be a great time to highlight one of our favourite teas. In this blog post, we will discuss the health benefits and taste of our Four Seasons Oolong tea and why it is an excellent choice for tea enthusiasts from all over the world.
What is Four Seasons Oolong Tea?
Four Seasons Oolong Tea, also known as 四季春 (Sìjìchūn) in Chinese, is a type of oolong tea that is grown in the mountains of Taiwan. It is called "Four Seasons" because it can be harvested all year round. Unlike other types of tea, Four Seasons Oolong is grown at lower altitudes, which means that it has a more delicate profile, less caffeine content, and has a lighter flavour.
Health Benefits of Four Seasons Oolong Tea
Like other types of tea, the Four Seasons Oolong has many health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, which help to protect the body from free radicals that can cause cell damage. It also contains a small amount of caffeine (compared to other teas and coffee), which can help to improve mental alertness and reduce fatigue. Studies have also shown that oolong tea can help to lower blood sugar levels and improve heart health.
Taste and Aroma of Our Four Seasons Oolong Tea
The Four Seasons Oolong has a unique taste and aroma that sets it apart from other types of tea. It has a floral and fruity aroma, with a sweet and slightly nutty taste. The tea is also slightly creamy, with a smooth and refreshing finish. Because Four Seasons Oolong is a lighter tea, it is perfect for those who prefer a less intense flavour - or those who are new to drinking Oolong tea.
