Brewing instructions
Description

Vietnam Tung Ting Oolong Tea is a type of Oolong Tea. It comes from the Lam Dong province of southern Vietnam near Bao Loc, manufactured using methods similar to Taiwan (formerly Formosa).

This involves picking the leaves and laying them out in the open sun to dry. Next, it undergoes rolling in bamboo baskets, thus kickstarting oxidation, before being dried using low temperatures.

Like any Type of Oolong Tea, this delectable beverage is semi-fermented. Many indeed describe it as the “in-between” Tea due to its processing being somewhere between Green Tea and Black Tea.

When brewed, Vietnam Tung Ting Oolong boasts a vibrant green liquor with a fine, flowery, sweet scent and flavour. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory.

Facts About Tea From Vietnam

  • Tea, regardless of the type, has played a significant role in Vietnamese culture for centuries.
  • Its consumption is a fairly informal affair - unlike Japan, the home of the Japanese Tea Ceremony.
  • Despite its age-old association with Vietnamese society, Tea production only began in the country in the 1880s. This was when French colonists began establishing plantations.
  • According to recent statistics, Vietnam is the fifth largest Tea producer in the world, creating an estimated 260,000 tonnes every year.
  • Loose Leaf Green Tea is the most common type made - thus making our Vietnam Tung Ting Oolong somewhat of a rarity.

Does Vietnam Tung Ting Oolong Contain Caffeine?

Caffeine, as most will know already, is a stimulating chemical compound. It exists in around 60 plants, including, of course, Camellia sinensis (Tea).

However, the specific caffeine amount differs depending on the type of Tea chosen. Oolong, as a rule of thumb, contains 35-37 mg per 8-oz cup, which should be enough to get you out of bed in the morning. Still, most pick this infusion because of its great taste!

Vietnam Tung Ting Oolong Tea Health Benefits

Our diets play a significant role in the health of our skin. Choosing Vietnam Tung Ting Oolong, then, is an excellent choice because, according to research, it can offer a helping hand.

In a 2001 study, 54% of participants found that their skin had improved dramatically after six months of drinking this beverage daily. Additionally, and perhaps even more remarkably, it might reduce diabetes risks.

The preliminary (emphasis on “preliminary”) research supporting this, conducted in 2003, saw test subjects drink Oolong Tea alongside conventional hypoglycemic drugs.

The results showed a dramatic improvement in balanced blood sugar levels, thus preventing sudden drops and spikes. Until we know more, however, we do not endorse Vietnam Tung Ting Oolong for this reason.

  2. This Tea is not cheap, but it has become my favourite (I've always had Champagne tastes but a Beer income!), togtehr with the Monkey-picked. It's my favourite early morning tea - usually enjoyed in bed at about 5 am!

  7. Leaf shape is good, for its price it is very good indeed. Sequential frontal, mid and after flavours shape it's profile well, and for a Vietnamese tea it has a very good character.

  8. A lovely green oolong. Light, rich tea biscuit scent. Light, clean floral taste. Has a calming effect. Excellent value. I really like this tea (my wife prefers the Monkey Picked Oolong).
