Description

Moragalla Ceylon Oolong Tea comes from one of the oldest estates in Ceylon (present-day Sri Lanka). It has a surprisingly malty taste almost reminiscent of Black Tea. This flavour occurs due to the unique and extraordinary processing of this particular Oolong Tea. Its oxidation levels are higher than that of many other Oolong Teas. The result is, put simply, exquisite.

Moragalla Ceylon Oolong Tea, like many similar beverages, can improve one's health and wellbeing in a multitude of ways. The latest research suggests that it can, among other qualities, boost the metabolism of fat cells. This, in turn, enables the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently, which ultimately leads to weight loss. Furthermore, this brew can improve digestion and cardiovascular health, as well as reduce the risks of diabetes.

Ceylon Moragalla Tea Estate

The Sri Lankan Moragalla Estate lies in the Southwest of the "Island of Tea". The Tea Garden is in the coastal district of Galle close to the town of Kadugannawa. It was established in 1870 as a low-level estate with altitudes varying from 40 to 60 metres.

The atmosphere has a high salt content that affects the soil, adding a unique quality to the final Tea production. Workers pick the Tea by hand and include the freshest two leaves and buds, as well as more mature leaves. This likewise contributes significantly to the exceptional quality of Moragalla Ceylon Oolong Tea.

Why Choose Oolong Tea?

Did you know that less than 2% of Tea drinkers choose Oolong Tea? Here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, we think it's time that changed. But why make the switch?

In many ways, Oolong Tea is the 'middle-ground' between Green Tea and Black Tea. However, in the west, practically no one has heard of it! Indeed, only recently has this delicious beverage started getting the recognition it deserves.

Despite this, Oolong Tea has mysterious origins. While historians agree that it originates from the Fujian province of China, there is considerable debate as to how or even why. The likelihood is that we'll never know for sure. But that doesn't change our love for Oolong Tea, particularly our Moragalla Ceylon Oolong Tea.

Benefits of Moragalla Ceylon Oolong Tea

Most famously, Oolong Tea has a close association with the improvement of the digestive system. Studies suggest that this is because Oolong Tea helps to alkalise the digestive tract. This is especially beneficial to those with acid reflux and ulcer problems as it leads to reduced inflammation. Less known is the fact that Oolong Tea is also slightly antiseptic.

This means it can clear bad bacteria in the stomach. Ultimately, many choose to drink Oolong Tea either before or during a large, fatty meal for these reasons. It is no real wonder, then, that the name "Chinese Restaurant Tea" has stuck!

  7. Wasn't to my taste unfortunately, but it was a free sample so not complaining! It had an odd taste - can't describe it - possibly would have been better without milk.
