Not only does it taste great, but research also suggests that Ti Kuan Yin Oolong has slimming properties that can successfully support a weight-loss program. In fact, many people drink this tea to replace high-calorie drinks and high-caffeine coffees to help with their diet. This Oolong tea is a tasty zero-calorie organic drink with high antioxidants and natural oolong flavours. It has a mid-level of caffeine, so it won’t spike your system. It’s something you can sip all day.
Drink your slimming Oolong hot or cold
For hot brewed tea, brew your Ti Kuan Yin Oolong tea at 90°C/194°F or higher. It has a natural sweetness and orchid like floral notes. It is great both hot as well as iced. Make a cold brew by placing some leaves in room temperature water for a few hours. It will brew a mellow flavour, with slow extraction and fewer tannins, resulting in less bitterness. The Oolong leaf is semi-oxidised. Semi-oxidised tea means that in terms of colour and flavour it falls roughly mid-way between black and green teas.
