Description



Harvested in April 2014, this tea is produced following an artisanal processing which requires much skill and patience. The second leaves of the tree are used to make this tea, named after their shape evoking "melon slices". This exceptional Chinese green tea, offering a clear liquor, is better prepared in a zhong cup (Chinese tea-cup with a lid) or in a small porcelain teapot.

 

Tea and health

Recent books and studies seem to prove that green tea plays an essential role, not only in preventing, but also in treating cardiovascular diseases and some types of cancer. In his books, David Servan-Schreiber has stressed the presence in green tea of a catechin, the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This powerful antioxidant is capable of neutralizing the reactive oxygen species and the free radicals heavily involved in aging and in chronic degenerative diseases. Researches have shown that  the EGCG may have beneficial effects against numerous illnesses, like atherosclerosis, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases or overweight. In Chinese traditional medicine, it is recommended for intellectual work, to reduce fatigue by stimulating the nervous system, to lower body temperature, enhance eyesight, reinforce the immune system, help digestion... It is important to underline that the green tea that is evoked here is of good quality and, of course, straight, plain green tea!
