In the build-up to Valentine's Day everybody's attention turns to roses. Actually, these beautiful flowers seem to be close to our emotions throughout the year. We actually love them most during the summer months, where we can hear the clinking of glasses as the rose ice tea is served and the taste is simply adored by all at the party. It is no wonder roses are loved.
Rose Oolong tea is often described in Chinese medicine as the tea of beauty. It’s usually sipped after having a soothing beauty treatment. Like most teas, Rose Oolong is high in antioxidants. It is known for improving the complexion and clearing acne. It is also rich in Vitamin C, which can boost the immune system and fight the common cold. It is said that the alkaloid content found in organic Oolong tea benefits not only physical energy but also mental energy by increasing the production of serotonin.
Rose Oolong can also enhance your fitness routine as it boosts your metabolism and burns body fat over a sustained period. This process is carried out by the Polyphenolic compounds present in Oolong tea, which activate enzymes that are involved in metabolizing fat cells in the body. Oolong tea also has a low-calorie content. This is perfect for achieving that summer beach body. We’ll certainly drink to that.
So let's just recap, Rose Oolong tea improves your skin, controls weight loss and makes you feel great. On a hot summer's day, Rose Oolong tea will also make you feel refreshed and revived. So rather than reaching for a cold drink packed full of calories to quench your thirst, we recommend Rose Oolong as the perfect tonic for summer.
Rose Oolong tea is best served in the afternoon or mid-evening and it pairs well with quite a number of your favourite desserts such as pancakes, crepes, and pastries. Rose Oolong is currently our tea of the month for March. Our Rose Oolong tea is sourced from Darjeeling and has medium caffeine content. It is best enjoyed after brewing the tea without milk or honey. Click here to learn more.
