With continuous sold-out sales in its weekly Farmer’s Market held at the capitol park, the production of Oolong Tea in the province got another major boost after the Provincial Government of Misamis Oriental allocated at least P4 million for the herbal plant’s processing facility in Barangay Kalagonoy, Gingoog City.
The herbal tea comes from the Oolong plant that grows at the foothills of Mt. Balatukan. Watch this short video below.
According to Organicfacts.net, the health benefits of oolong tea include its ability to reduce chronic health conditions such as heart diseases, inflammatory disorders, and high cholesterol levels while providing vital antioxidants and promoting superior bone structure, robust skin, and good dental health. Oolong tea is fragrant with a pleasant aroma and has a fruity flavor. Despite its caffeine content, it is still a relaxing drink. Details in the link below.
