Helps to fight Cancer - Tastes Great!
April 6, 2015
According to "The Moss Report":
One important hint, however, was the distribution of catechins in the five tea types
(dragonwell, gunpowder, jasmine pearl, sencha, and gykuro) analyzed and their
constituent chemicals. For me, this solved the riddle of which tea to buy. While other
green tea types varied widely in catechin content, one tea type was uniformly rich in
antioxidants. This was dragonwell (Chinese= Longjing) from Hangzhou in Zhejiang
province. This is a famous variety of tea in China.
"In the CUNY test, samples of dragonwell tea contained from 86 to 175 milligrams per kilogram (mg/kg) of catechins. By contrast, jasmine tea (although delicious to drink) sometimes contained as little as 21 mg/kg. If you are drinking green tea not just for the flavor but for its health-promoting qualities, there is a danger that jasmine tea might miss the desired goal."
It is delicious too!
