Description

Wulong Toppest is our finest, indeed ‘toppest’, quality Oolong Tea. It comes from the Wuji mountain range of the Fujian province in China, boasting an exceptional reputation in terms of its flavour and profile. We pack it fresh to order here at our Pluckley-based factory, nestled within the stunning vistas of the Kentish countryside. Why not try it today?

If you need more of an incentive, it’s worth recognising that frequently drinking Wulong Toppest Tea might offer Oolong Tea benefits.

According to scientific evidence, Oolong Benefits can aid digestion, support the immune system and even boost the metabolism of fat cells - thus promoting weight loss. Pretty amazing for your new favourite brew, wouldn’t you agree?

The “In-Between” Tea

Oolong in all its shapes and sizes (including, of course, Wulong Toppest) has a vast multitude of noteworthy qualities. But did you know that some people call it the ‘in-between’ Tea? This refers to its processing, whereby it’s only partly oxidised. In other words, it sits somewhere between Green Tea and Black Tea in terms of its production.

Yet it’s important to note the term “somewhere”. This is because seldom do two Oolong Teas share the same oxidation levels. Some types undergo 8% oxidation while others can be oxidised up to 80%.

Less oxidation means its taste likely resembles Green Tea, while more oxidation almost certainly makes it akin to Black Tea.Wulong Toppest Tea, on the other hand, boasts a flavour considered totally unique!

Where did Oolong Tea Come From

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 Toppest Tea

As already mentioned, Wulong Toppest Tea can help you lose weight. But how, exactly, does this work? First off, it’s worth noting that every time you eat, enzymes in the body’s cells break down food and turn it into energy. Broady, metabolism is the process of food-energy conversion responsible for this.

The faster the metabolism runs, the easier it is for the body to burn calories. And the more calories burnt, the easier it is to drop those pesky pounds!

Providing you eat well and exercise frequently, this incredible infusion might be able to help the process along. This could mean the body burns fat quicker and more efficiently. In other words, it supports metabolism in its essential work.
