Description

The gardens of the Eastern coast of Taiwan don't receive pesticides, in order to facilitate the multiplication of
Jacobiasca formosana Paoli, small leafhoppers who devour the leaves. To protect themselves against these insects, the trees produce amino acids, giving a honey flavour to the tea. Then follow an almost 100% oxidization.This "organic" technic is being mastered better and better and offers a liquor that has the slightly acid taste and light astringence typical of red teas, but balanced with some mellowness and roundness.

 

Tea and health

Red teas (often called "black teas" in Western countries) don't have the positive reputation of green, white or oolong teas in terms of health benefits, but they nevertheless have interesting properties. They contain powerful carbohydrates (polysaccharides) which slow blood sugar absorption and can help in cases of diabetes or in a weight loss diet. The antioxidants present in red teas may also play a positive role in weight loss, along the other benefits they offer, such as helping decreasing the risks of cardiovascular diseases. They relax the muscles of bronchioles, thus helping regulate and enhance breathing.  Drinking red tea is also said to help bring cortisol (the "stress" hormone) levels back to normal more quickly and might even help recover sooner after a workout. Red teas have a reputation of containing an important amount of caffeine, but they still have less caffeine than coffee. So, drinking red teas offers caffeine's benefits - alertness, concentration... - but without its more negative effects.
