They are 65% less likely to develop high blood pressure if they drink more than 2 cups a day.
How to steep Iron Man Oolong Tea?
Place 1-2 teaspoons of tea for every 225ml of water and boil your water at 95ºC (203ºF). Steep your leaves for one minute in the first and second brewing and then increase your steeping time and temperatures in the next ones. The most traditional way to enjoy Iron Buddha is using small “gongfu” tea cups, i.e. cups so small that the tea is finished in one small sip. These cups help discipline one to savor tea with patience, aka ‘gongfu’. Only drinking Iron Buddha Oolong slowly and patiently will one fully appreciate its unique flavors.
