Study Shows Oolong’s Potential in Fighting Breast Cancer

Oh, my favorite tea can help me and many others. This is exciting news for people who have a history of breast cancer in their family and women in general because of 250,000 new diagnoses per year in just the United States. Oolong has been known to be very complex tea that is semi-oxidized (they are between green teas and black teas).  The complexity might be the reason it helps breast cancer. They tend to be one of the more expensive teas, but are also known as multiple steeping teas. The article was really good and like how they say that even though oolongs are oxidized 2- 80% (though I know of red oolongs tend to be oxidized more) most Chinese and Taiwanese oolongs are oxidized 15-50% shows the preference in greener oolongs.

I have stated before and will state again there is not one tea that is better to drink for health, it depends on the health issue and also what tea you will actually drink. If you are only drinking for health than it depends on your ailment or prevention for drinking tea. You can buy high-quality loose leaf oolong teas form me here.

I enjoy getting my updates from the World Tea News and have subscribed to them for about 15 years.
