What is Wulong
Legend has it that Oolong Tea (also known as “Wulong”) first came into existence during the Chinese Song Dynasty (906-1279 CE). Around this time, Emperors were often gifted “Tribute Teas”, prompting one producer to go above and beyond with his royal present.
In an attempt to stand out from the crowd, workers from Beiyuan garden in Fujian created a dark Loose Leaf variety.
No Emperor had ever received such a gift, the norm being compressed Teacakes. However, the infusion proved a tremendous success! Eventually, it became known as Wulong, meaning “Black Dragon”, but this name eventually morphed into Oolong - or so the story goes.
Whether there is any truth to this tale remains a topic of significant debate. Whatever happened, we’re just glad that it did!

Health Benefits of Wulong Tea
In 2015, a meta-analysis found that drinking a cup of Tea a day (no matter the type) reduced the risks of developing cancer by 2%.
Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none. It’s essential to note, however, that The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company does not endorse this beverage for reduced cancer risks. Instead, we support ongoing research.
