Jade Oolong Tea is a type of Loose Leaf Oolong Tea from the Nantou district of Taiwan. It is what some might describe as an “in-between” Tea due to its oxidation levels being the middle-ground between Green and Black Tea.
Also noteworthy is the fact that it comes with Oolong Tea benefits. We pack it fresh to order, thereby ensuring quality and consistency with every cuppa brewed.
What is Jade Oolong Tea?
Taiwan (formerly called Formosa) has produced Tea for many hundreds of years. Our Jade Oolong Tea, in particular, is one of the most popular varieties created there. It grows at high altitudes, its name deriving from the stunning colour of the leaf.
Casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike flock to it for such a reason - as well as, of course, for its flavour. But what does Jade Oolong Tea taste like?
What Does Jade Oolong Tea Taste Like?
It’s all fair and well discussing the rich history and culture surrounding Jade Oolong Tea. However, what most people want to know, ultimately, is what it provides to their palate.
These tightly-rolled Oolong Tea leaves, when brewed, have a distinctly creamy, almost buttery note. Smooth and balanced from start to finish, they likewise boast floral and fruity undertones - a true delight!
Jade Oolong Tea Caffeine Content
Another factor worth exploring is Jade Oolong Tea’s caffeine content. This stimulating chemical compound famously provides an energy boost upon consumption.
Oolong Tea, regardless of the specific variety, is semi-oxidised and experiences only a relatively short period of fermentation. The nickname, “in-between” Tea, as a result, applies here, too: An average cuppa has around 35-mg of caffeine.
Jade Oolong Tea Brewing Instructions
1, Put Tea leaves into a Tea Infuser or Filter (both available here).
2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug.
3, Boil fresh water and allow it to cool to temperatures between 80 and 90°C.
4, Jade Oolong Tea brewing times vary depending on personal preferences. However, we recommend infusing for 2 to 3 minutes. Any longer and you risk creating a bitter taste.
How to Serve: Best served without accompaniments.
Tasting Notes: Enjoy creamy, buttery notes with floral and fruity undertones.
Jade Oolong Tea Benefits
Did you know that less than 2% of the world’s Tea drinkers choose Oolong? It’s a shame, in many respects, and not least because of the potential of Jade Oolong Tea health benefits.
Perhaps best known is its ability to support digestion. The reason is its capacity to alkalise the gastrointestinal tract while reducing inflammation, which especially helps those with acid reflux and ulcer problems.
But that’s not all on offer. Indeed it is but the beginning. In a 2001 study, 54% of participants found their skin had improved dramatically after six months of drinking this remarkable beverage daily.
There is also the possibility of it boosting the metabolism of fat cells, thus promoting weight loss. Additionally, preliminary evidence indicates that it reduces the risk of developing type-2 diabetes.
