Triple Leaf Tea's Ancient Chinese Medicinals
Traditional Chinese medicine began in approximately 2500 B.C. Recently, here in the West, people have discovered the value of this ancient system which focuses on aiding the body's own healing mechanisms through restoring harmony and balance. The Chinese system of herbology has been recorded in ancient texts which are studied and employed even today. This time tested knowledge has been passed on from generation to generation over the centuries.
Triple Leaf Tea comes from such a tradition. It is made in the U.S.A. by a Chinese American family-owned business. The company owner can remember stories of his own grandfather selling herbs and teas in his village in China. Today, these traditional Chinese herbal formulas are available to you. We wish you harmony and balance!
Cholesterid Tea - The Yunnan tuocha Tea Tradition
Tea from the tea plant, Camellia sinensis, helps to maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range. Yunnan tuocha tea, in particular, has been researched for its health promoting properties. The Chinese attribute special qualities and health benefits to Yunnan tuocha tea. Traditionally, this mild and delicious black tea was used to help promote healthy digestion, especially of fat, and balance health. Green, black and oolong teas, "cha", all are made from the tea plant, Camellia sinensis. Yunnan tuocha tea, however, is one of a few teas known as "pu-erh cha", made from an ancient subspecies of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis assamica. It is grown in the Yunnan province of southern China. "Tuo cha" means bowl-shaped tea. It refers to the method of shaping the pu-erh tea during drying. Experts recommend drinking three cups of this tea everyday. Enjoy it hot or iced. Drink it as is, or try adding lemon and your favorite sweetener. Also, drink any of Triple Leaf Tea's green or decaf green teas to help to maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.
