High Mountain Beauty
On a recent trip to the Pacific Island of Taiwan, I was astounded by the ‘ageless beauty’ of the local women, who look, on average, 10 years younger than they should.
Determined to find out their ‘secret,’ I engaged in conversation with a local storeowner in the mountainous region of Alishan. Here, over the daily Taiwanese tea drinking ritual, she unveiled the mystery of their beauty – Oolong Tea!
Produced from the camellia sinensis plant, the tea is hand picked and hand processed. It contains large amounts of polyphenols, which in turn, fight free radicals responsible for age spots and wrinkles. By drinking only two cups a day, the skin will clarify and glow and the signs of aging diminish. Now, you’re going to love this – the tea also activates the enzyme responsible for dissolving triglycerides [fat deposits.] In fact, Oolong burns over 157% more fat than green tea!* Drink up girls!
