Amidst the hustle of skyscraper cities and modern Chinese culture, many villages still retain much of their traditional customs by living a simple life and upholding a reverence for the beauty of nature. They capture the loveliness of their landscapes through painting and ceramics and the production of tea, developing flavours which reflect the scenery of their natural world.
The delicate, dark-green buds of this high-grade gunpowder leaf are from the Zhejiang region, famous for their green tea production. The dry leaf produces the aroma of a clear sea breeze over a lush, grassy landscape, and the resulting brew releases a refreshing infusion of oceanic flavours and crisp snow peas. The mouth feel is supple and silky with a long gentle after taste of watercress and soft florals.
Cloud & Mist tea benefits health and improves the functionality of many systems in the body. As green tea is not oxidized, its buds and leaves preserve much of their original nutrients. Catechins boost the ability to defend against free radicals, decreasing the appearance of aging on the skin. They also inhibit the growth of bacterial infections, improving the immune system. Hypolipidemics also work to lower the amount of bad cholesterol in the body while increasing good cholesterol, contributing to cardiovascular health. Boosting the metabolic rate, green tea also aids weight loss.
