Description

The "Dragon well tea" is undeniably the most famous of Chinese teas. It grows on the mountains surrounding the city of Hangzhou, around the West Lake. The characteristic flat shape of its leaves derives from the method used to heat them, the Long Jing being a "pan-fried" tea. Its yellow green infusion offers a soft aroma and a silky and slighty sweet liquor, lingering, with some notes of chesnuts.

 

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 dusease 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!
