Enjoy The Pure Goodness of Chinese Teas

Tea may be the first Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) used by Chinese people in ancient times. Herbs are a foundational part of traditional Chinese medicine, especially in the form of tea. Made from an infusion of hot water and one or more herbal ingredients, these teas can include dried flowers, fruits, roots, leaves, seeds, and even minerals. Ingredients are recommended based on your health goals and needs. The effects of these teas can range from boosting your immune system to treating active conditions.

Tea drinking can have many significant benefits for our physical health via its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immuno-regulatory, anticancer, cardiovascular-protective, anti-diabetic, and anti-obesity activities. More than 700 different kinds of components and 27 mineral elements can be found in tea. Depending on the age of the leaves, the extent of oxidation, post-harvest treatment, and quality of the final product, different teas posses their own unique qualities and benefits.

Pue'rh Tea

Pue'rh teas are any of the varieties of darker teas made from leaves that have gone through a unique process. The freshly picked leaves are exposed to humidity and oxygen for an extended period of time, even longer than that of black teas. Pue'rh is a fermented tea that can aid with digestion and is loaded with polyphenols meaning it can aid with cleansing toxins and free radicals. Pue'rh also contains a very diverse makeup of bacteria to support gut health.

Oolong Tea

Oolong tea combines the qualities of dark and green teas, giving it several purported health benefits. It is made by using a unique process of withering the leaves of the Camilla Sinensis Tea Bush using a special drying and oxidation process. During the oxidation process, catechins are converted into potent antioxidants and impart many different health benefits. Oolong and black teas, are valued for their deep, rich flavors.

Green Tea

Green Teas are only slightly fermented so that all-important raw materials are preserved in the tea. The health-promoting properties of green teas are largely attributed to a class of polyphenolic compounds, including but not limited to the family of catechins. Catechins are natural antioxidants that contribute to a number of reported biological activities such as protection against cancer and cardiovascular disease, antimicrobial and antiviral properties, and modulation of obesity and insulin resistance.
