Origin: Zhangzhou, Fujian, China
Ingredients: Jade colored leaves (hand made into small, rolled up), then soaked in organic honey
Taste: Delightfully sweet honey flavoured and aroma

Health Benefits: Tie Guan Yin tea is the premium form of Chinese Oolong teas. Being lightly fermented, these teas are high amino acids, vitamins, polyphenols and antioxidants. These combine into a tea that reduces cholesterol and helps reduce hardening of the arteries, and so can help reduce risks of heart attacks. The antioxidants it contains can also help guard against some forms of cancer, and also help fight the affects of aging and bacterial infections. Apart from the health benefits of Oolong tea, the honey used in this tea is also a completely unprocessed organic honey, collected from flowers in the forest in the area around where the tea is grown.
