What is Oolong Tea?
Oolong Tea is partially oxidized teas which are hand-rolled into thin strands. The level of oxidation for Oolong teas falls somewhere between the oxidation levels of black and green tea. The artisanal rolling technique of Oolong teas is the main factor which plays around with the appearance, color of the liquor, and the uplifting aroma, resulting in various Oolong varieties. Oolong teas have an abundance of vitamins and minerals with just the right dose of detoxifying alkaloids- a gift of the partial roasting process.
Why is Oolong Tea Good for Health?
In addition to caffeine, Oolong teas also contain vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and beneificial polyphenols.These polyphenols are though to reduce blood sugar and regulate insulin levels. The antioxidants present in Oolong teas have may also help to decrease the risk of heart diseases and high blood pressure. In addition to this, the combination of caffeine and polyphenols found in oolong teas help increase the number of calories burnt by the body in a day. This aids in weight loss as well.
How many cups of Oolong tea is recommended?
For best results, we recommend drinking two cups of Oolong tea daily; one cup in the morning coupled with a balanced breakfast ; and another cup in the afternoon along with a healthy lunch. Remember, a cup of Oolong tea contains about half as much caffeine as a cup of green tea, and far less than that found in a regular cup of coffee. Hence, a cup of Oolong tea gives you a small dose of caffeine for mental alertness but without the unwanted jitters.
Where do you source your teas from?
We source our teas from over 150 renowned tea plantations and small individual farms in India. Within the country, we procure from 5 popular tea-producing regions, namely : Darjeeling, Assam, Nilgiri, Kangra, and Sikkim.
How are your teas packed?
After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Teas then pass through a final 10+ quality check points for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. They are then vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminium-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperatuere-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Upon recieving a consumer's order, we further pack the required quantity of tea in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centres located in various parts of the world.
This is a tea you let cool down right underneath your nose. Just the smell is revitalizing. I let it steep for 5 minutes and the flavor is strong and smooth. The bergamot is not too strong, and the citrus is at the right level. I don't think the oolong could even taste bitter. It has a honey undertone, or maybe that's what I imagine while I drink it. You won't need to add any sweetener. I don't feel like the caffeine level is too strong, I'll end the day with a cup without any sleep issues.
I will be buying again.
My mom is absolutely in love with Vahdam teas, and especially with this one, very soft and delicious - thank you so much for making this dream come true! Fresh, amazingly tasty teas, delivery to the other end of the world, all the VAHDAM company efforts in order to deliver the parcel in time are greatly appreciated! I am highly recommending VAHDAM to all the customers and to all my friends, and I wish to the company prosperity and many happy customers! :))
I like this tea very much. Leaves are fresh and taste is smooth, and it contains just right amount of bergamot flavor (unlike the tee I use locally). Tea review is subjective thing but here is some measure of tea success : my family started consuming double amount of tea cups lately
Earl grey is my favourite tea blend, and naturally, I've tried quite a few different ones. Ofcourse, the standard base tea in Earl Grey is black tea. Darjeeling black tea or Assam black tea can really make quite the difference. The quality and quantity of the bergamot oil is also a major factor. In some types of Earl Grey, like those 'double bergamot' Earl Greys, the natural sweetness of the tea is overpowered by the citrus aroma. While they do certainly smell better, the taste can be a bit on the bitter side. But while black tea is the standard base for Earl Grey, there are also Green and even White options available. This however was the first time I saw an Oolong Earl Grey. And honestly, this tea has completely blown me out of the water. It is everything I expect from the perfect cup of Earl Grey. The base oolong tea is clean, bright and sweet. It is on the heavier side of oxidation. I couldn't detect a heavy roasted flavour on this oolong, like some of the DaHongPao's and ShuiXian's I've tried. Just a little bit more nuttiness and less maltiness than your standard black tea. This flavour profile of nuts a,d dried fruits is only enhanced, not overpowered, by the citrusy aromatics of the bergamot oil used in this blend. You can tell they used a high quality oil for this blend, and that they did not use too much of it. Where the tea has more of a dried fruit sort of flavour, the bergamot oil really adds more of that orange freshness to the cup. The best part about this tea, is that you can play a bit with different temperatures and brewing times. I really enjoyed it at 1'30" of brewing at 85°C. This brought out just the taste I was looking for, and I could resteep up to 4 times. Love this tea and will certainly reorder!
This tea is the best Earl Grey I've had - oolong makes it so smooth and doesn't get bitter if brewed a bit too long. Really enjoy it. Repeat customer.
