Organic DUO Oolong: Ginger Orange Oolong and Ginseng Oolong
Tea lovers with discerning palates savor the complex notes of our premium oolong teas. Harvested in the province of Hunan, China, where the finest teas have been cultivated through the ages, an oolong’s flavor and caffeine content can vary widely, depending upon the level of oxidation used in processing. Green oolongs, which have undergone the least oxidation, are lighter in color and boast natural floral notes, whereas darker oolongs have deeper color and are frequently characterized by fruit and chocolate tones.
Ginger Orange Oolong Tea
Delicious either hot or iced, our medium-bodied Chinese oolong is augmented with the sweet essence of orange and enhanced by highly aromatic, dried orange peel. We’ve further underscored this delicate flavor with a hint of ginger to yield a taste sensation that warms the heart and soothes the soul. Both oolong tea and ginger are prized in Asian and Arabic herbal traditions as potent digestive aids. Recent research confirms their efficacy.
Ginseng Oolong Tea
We’ve enhanced our lightly oxidized, Chinese green oolong tea with ginseng, an herb highly prized in traditional Chinese medicine—and confirmed by modern scientific research—for the role it plays in assisting the body to restore itself to health without side effects. Ginseng is pleasantly invigorating with a brisk, spicy aroma that yields an explosion of flavor.
Ginger relieves nausea and may also be effective in lowering cholesterol. Ginseng supports the body’s defenses against colds and flu and encourages the elimination of harmful free radicals throughout the body. Oolong teas have demonstrated the potential to increase metabolism, aid digestion, promote weight loss and soothe the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.*
