What is Oolong tea? Oolong is somewhere between green tea and black tea in terms of oxidation. In Chinese culture, semi-oxidized oolong teas are knowns as qīngchá (blue-green tea). Several of its sub-varieties, including those produced in the Wuyi Mountains in the northern part of Fujian Province and the central mountains of Taiwan, are among the most famous Chinese teas.
Oolong tea tastes closer to green tea than black tea, as it lacks the sweet pink aroma of black tea. However, this tea lacks the distinctive plant notes typical of green tea. Oolong must be prepared with hard intensity to transform the bitter touch into a sweet taste.
Rosehips - during the 2nd World War, the military ingested the fruits of the rosehips as a natural way to obtain vitamin C. This is because these fruits contain a high amount of this vitamin, essential for strengthening the defences. Thus, they would be able to maintain immune system resistance in the face of the circumstances of the conflict. In addition to this function, vitamin C contributes to the normal formation of collagen, allowing, at the same time, the normal functioning of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, skin, gums and teeth. Even in the protection of cells against undesirable oxidations.
For centuries, this plant help to treat infections caused by rabid dog bites. You can try rose hips with hibiscus to obtain an excellent vitamin tisane.
Raspberry - this fruit is rich in vitamin C, fibre and antioxidants. Raspberry is believed to have originated in Asia Minor, having been consumed for thousands of years in various parts of the world. Highly resistant and heavily cultivated for over 450 years, the raspberry concentrates a large part of its current production in Europe, Ukraine, Hungary, Poland and Russia. Raspberry is considered a superfood that can contribute to the reinforcement of defences and the healing of the skin. In addition, it can promote satiety and delay cellular ageing.
