A Taster’s Choice of Flavor
I am always contipated. No matter how often I eat fruits and vegetables, I don’t move. This is true even with my mother and even my mother’s mother, so I guess it was passed on to me. Alot of my friends advice me though to drink Oolong tea. Oolong tea leaves produce a sort of blue-green tea, while green tea leaves produce a more fragrant, heady green tea. These are different from the more common black tea leaves, which produce the customary appearance of a black tea with a customary fragrance. The taste and fragrance many western people associate with tea comes from the more common black tea leaves.
Pure green tea, uncut by other substances, has a strong floral fragrance and is not a fragrance people usually expect when ordering tea. In recent times, green tea has become popular for its anti-oxidant properties which are thought to protect the body’s cells from free radicals, harmful cell by-products of living.
Oolong tea is more similar in taste and fragrance to black tea and is often the type of tea served in oriental restaurants. Gentle and soothing to the taste, it can provide a satisfying and relaxing end to meals and gatherings, and is often served at that time.
They say that green tea and oolong tea can help increase metabolism and aids in digestion. I better get going then and try these. It’s worth a shot!
