Another excellent green tea from Adagio Teas is White Monkey Green Tea. This is a real taste pleaser.
From the Fujian province of China, we receive White Monkey Green Tea. Although the color “white” is included in the name, it is in reality green tea.
The leaves of White Monkey Green Tea are large and white tipped. The leaves are covered in a fine silvery white down which led to the name of the tea. The climate and altitude of the Fujian province is perfect for producing the finest green tea. The tea leaves are carefully handpicked, gently steamed and dried. The tea is mild and delicate.
White Monkey Green Tea has a fresh sweet scent and a somewhat earthy taste. There is no hint of bitterness with this tea. One key to the proper brewing of White Monkey tea is the correct water temperature. It is important not to over-heat it.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF WHITE MONKEY GREEN TEA
As a green tea, White Monkey Green Tea is high in antioxidants. Antioxidants have been found effective in fighting disease and as an aid to slow the aging process. Many research studies have been done and there will be many more in the future as researchers attempt to confirm the extraordinary health benefits seen by those who drink green tea on a regular basis. Green tea may prove to be a fighter for one major health problem, cancer.
It is believed that the polyphenols in green tea fight cancer. One research study found that Japanese men have a lower than average rate of esophageal cancer in spite of the fact that 75% of these men smoke cigarettes. The only commonality was their consumption of large amounts of green tea.
High levels of antioxidants and polyphenols are found in White Monkey Green Tea making this a tea with excellent health benefits. This high quality green tea is only available from Adagio Teas.
