This longtime favorite Chinese tea blended with jasmine blossoms comes from Fujian Province. It's lightly oxidized and easy to drink. This green tea will make a wonderfully fragrant addition to your afternoon tea meal.

Steep like a tea professional and never use boiling water on green tea. 165-175F is the optimal temperature.

Green tea contains substances called polyphenols, which scientists think contribute to its anticancer activity. Laboratory studies of one polyphenol, catechin epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), show that it may interfere with several processes involved in cell replication, causing tumor cell death. It also might slow the formation of blood vessels around tumors.

Epigallocatechin (ECG), another polyphenol, stops leukemic cells from multiplying in laboratory studies. As an antioxidant, green tea may repair cell damage, but whether it can prevent cancer is uncertain. It is also unknown how it might help protect the heart, but it reduces LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and increases HDL (“good”) cholesterol.

Tannins present in green tea generally have antibacterial properties.
