What is oolong tea?

Oolong cha (in Chinese: 乌龙茶) is a type of Chinese tea with an oxidation level between that of green and black tea leaves. The dry leaf appearance of this tea, also pronounced as ‘wulong’ by the Chinese, can have colours that vary from green to almost black, depending on the oxidation level.

Anxi’s famous Tieguanyin, for example, is green and as a flavour that is closer to a green tea with a thicker soup and characteristic floral aroma. In contrast, Wuyi mountain’s famous Dahongpao is dark, and steeps an intense and ‘rocky’ flavour due to the mineral rich soil in that region. The intensity of this dark oolong is closer to a black tea.

The origin of oolong

It’s not clear where the term ‘oolong’ actually originates from. When literally translated, it means ‘dark dragon’ in Chinese. Some expert say, it’s because of the dark curly leaves resembles a black dragon.

Health benefits of oolong tea

For the health fanatics out there, we’ve also gathered some information regarding oolong tea benefits.

Caffeine: Wulong is naturally low in caffeine. Like other types of tea, it contains caffeine at about 3% of its dry weight, translating to between 30 mg and 90 mg per 8 oz (250 ml) cup, while coffee has 150 - 200 mg per cup. Hence, it’s a good alternative beverage to high sugar drinks while still giving you the extra pick-up you may need. Scientific studies find that tea with its stimulant qualities helps increase alertness and improves response speed, which altogether lead to better performance for athletes during sports.

Diet & weight loss: Can I lose weight by drinking oolong tea? a Chinese study in 1998 in which 102 females participated, shows that continuous consumption of oolong tea for six weeks resulted in a reduction of body weight. Thought it’s not a miracle drink, it’s a good beverage to complement a healthy diet program. To optimally benefit from the health effects, it’s the best to drink it half an hour after meals, which supports digestion. Avoid it in the evening, to avoid any side effects of caffeine.

Skin: Your skin is constantly exposed to free radicals which cause dark spots and wrinkles as well as accelerating aging. Oolong tea has antioxidants which has the ability to destroy free radicals. A 2004 research, conducted by Dr. Kenichi Yanagimoto from the University of California, showed that only 15 days of consumption of oolong tea had an incredible 50% reduction in free radicals.
