At our shop, we've often received a question about what Oolong tea is. Let me explain quickly.
Oolong is partially oxidized tea with a bolder flavor than green tea yet milder than black. Oolong contains a mixture of green and black tea polyphenols: catechins (green tea) and theaflavins (black tea). Oolong also provides caffeine and may promote weight loss.
We are promoting 20% off our Tie Kwan Yin. It is a classic Oolong tea that is harvested in Fujian, China. A long time ago, they said Wei Yin, a poor farmer, passed a stone temple of Bodhisattva Kwan Yin (aka. Goddess of Mercy) every day. The temple was not in good shape. Despite how tired he was, he decided to use his spare time to improve the temple. As he slept one day, Bodhisatta Kwan Yin was in his dream and told him to visit a cave behind the temple. With his vivid memory, after he woke up and went to the location, he found a single tea shoot. That's how this tea name came about. Our Tie Kwan Yin has a light and floral roast. It can be re-steeped a few more times.
