Additionally, it might have the ability to promote weight loss by boosting the metabolism of fat cells. As such, there is nothing not to like with Wulong Choice Chinese Oolong Tea.

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!

Today, Wulong Choice Chinese Oolong Tea is one of our most popular Oolongs. Why not try it for yourself? You won’t be disappointed by its delectable taste and amazing Oolong Tea benefits! Go on - treat yourself and indulge in this heavenly brew!

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.

  1. I like this because although its a cheaper tea, it has a lot of flavour and I like to buy it in larger quantities for the tea caddie and use it as an every day tea.
