Oolong Loose Leaf Tea




Oolong tea is a type of tea that is semi-oxidized and twisted, curled or rolled into balls or thin strands. The shaping technique used varies depending on the tea master. What's interesting is that rolling plays a crucial role in the appearance, color, and aroma of the tea leaves. The darker oolongs tend to have a warm, toasty flavor while lighter ones have a more delicate taste.

According to research, oolong tea contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), one of the main components found in green tea that provides numerous benefits, including helping to prevent memory loss and cognitive decline. Drinking oolong tea regularly can be beneficial to your brain's health. 

Oolong tea is also known to help lower blood sugar levels, based on meta-analysis research. This can assist in reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, weight gain, and heart disease.

Other benefits of drinking oolong tea include boosting fat loss, strengthening bones, fighting cancerous cells, reducing stress, improving oral health, promoting a healthy gut, and enhancing liver function. Sip on this delightful, semi-oxidized tea and boost your health!


How many cups of tea can I steep from 1oz of loose leaf tea?

The number of 8oz cups you can steep from 1 oz of loose leaf tea varies depending on the type of tea and the strength of the brew desired, but a general guideline is that 1 oz of loose leaf tea can make approximately 10 to 15 cups of tea. Typically, 1 teaspoon of loose leaf tea (about 2-3 grams) is used per 8oz cup of water. Since 1 oz is approximately 28 grams, this means you can steep roughly 10 cups if you use 2.8 grams per cup, or closer to 14-15 cups if you use slightly less tea per cup. Multiple steepings of high-quality loose leaf teas can further increase the number of cups you can brew from the same leaves.
