Unusual Green Tea

Many people the world over drink green teas for both the taste and their potential health benefits, now you can sample a rarely seen variety - Ye Cha Wang.

This is a very special tea for a very simple reason - no one grows it deliberately, it is a wild tea. It is for that reason that it is seldom seen for sale and is therefore totally organically grown.

Ye Cha Wang is from the same family as Green Teas. The benefits of green tea, oolong tea and others are fully recognised by Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is only relatively recently that Universities around the world are discovering the potential health benefits of green teas in particular. The reason that green teas are so good for you is that they are hardly processed and the helpful chemicals such as anti-oxidants and flavonoids are still intact and present in the leaves.

One of the benefits that green tea drinkers may expect is better digestion; an increased metabolism of nutrients in the body can also aid with slimming. The anti-oxidants in green teas like Ye Cha Wang help to combat the free radicals in the body and may help to reduce the occurrence of cancers and heart disease. Women green tea drinkers may also be interested to note that green teas may help to counteract osteoporosis.

Ye Cha Wang is found only in some high regions in the Hunan Province. The plants are not widespread and so its production is limited. No one knows precisely how or when locals began to harvest its leaves.

It has a very smooth taste, fresh palate and can be drunk during all day. We highly recommend this tea to tea drinkers who want to add a very "natural touch" to their summer heat. Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine recommend it be taken to reduce the likelihood of summer colds and related ailments.
