Tie Guan Yin or Iron Goddess is probably the best known Chinese high-grade Oolongs. A light, semi-fermented, whole-leaf tea that is low in caffeine, high in antioxidants and particularly beneficial around meal times. The fresh, earthy flavour carries a lingering aroma, as well as subtle undertones of florals and fruits.

Health Benefits
Over the past several decades, thousands of studies have been published that have identified and quantified many bioactive compounds in the leaves of the tea (Camellia sinensis) plant that are used to make green, black, white and oolong tea. Some studies have been conducted that reveal the mechanisms of actions by which specific tea compounds may elicit health benefits and show how these diverse elements in tea work synergistically to promote health when consumed as a plant-based beverage. The extensive tea research includes laboratory, animal studies, observational studies of large populations and randomised clinical trials.
The benefits of tea are often attributed to the phenolic compounds (some of which act as antioxidants). Numerous studies with the major catechins in tea, namely epicatechins in green tea and the theaflavins and thearubinigins in black tea, show that these compounds are at least partially digested, create many bioactive metabolites and sometimes pass through the body intact whereby they provide health benefits.
-
The research suggests that the health benefits of tea are wide-ranging and include, but are not limited to the following:
  • General nutrition
  • Significant levels of calcium, zinc, Vitamins B1, B2, B6 and folic acid
  • Antioxidant protection to protect the body against free radical damage
  • Cancer protection
  • Weight loss
  • Increasing mental alertness whilst at the same time inducing a sense of calm on the nervous system - contains l-theanine
