Pronounced wu-lung tea, Oolong tea is prepared from camellia plant buds, stems, and leaves. Oolong tea is a magical elixir known to benefit our mental and physical health, as well as our metabolism. Rose oolong, also known as "beauty tea”, is particularly noteworthy for its striking colour and aroma.

When oolong tea is combined with fresh rose petals, the advantages are multiplied, making it a complete health and beauty ritual for us. With its floral and mellow flavour, it will quickly rub off on you. Oolong (wu lung) tea was developed in the Beiyun district of Phoenix Mountain in Fujian Province during the Tang era. In China, it is still widely farmed and processed, and it plays an important role in their tea culture.

It is recommended that you drink one cup of this tea after lunch every day to enhance your metabolism, and the best thing is that it tastes great. Rose petals nicely balance out the bitterness of the oolong tea, and together they make a great everyday mix. For a fun evening with friends, serve this magical elixir with pancakes, crepes, and cupcakes.
