Plant Story

 

Oolong tea, literally meaning ‘black dragon tea’, is a traditional Chinese tea produced through a uniqueprocess. It involves withering the plant under a strong sun and oxidizing before curling and twistingleaves. This semi-fermented or semi-oxidized tea has a unique taste that is quite distinct from thetraditional black or green teas. As green tea is fermented to oolong and then to black tea, polyphenolcompounds including catechins are polymerized into a variety of theaflavins, which result in differentbiological activities of those teas.

Recently, the effects of oolong tea extract on skin whitening have been reported. The oolong teaextract inhibited tyrosinase activity in vitro, and repressed intracellular tyrosinase at the mRNA level.Also, it eventually showed inhibition of pigmentation induced by UVB in guinea pigs. Phenolic acids orcatechol derivatives of the tea seem to inhibit tyrosinase activity to regulate melanogenesis.
