Health Benefits Of Organic Ming Ming Tea
Why don’t other Chinese teas have similar health-giving properties? Green, oolong, and black teas all come from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. What sets green tea apart is the way it is processed. Green tea leaves are steamed, which prevents the EGCG compound from being oxidized. By contrast, black and oolong tea leaves are made from fermented leaves, which results in the EGCG being converted into other compounds that are not nearly as effective in preventing and fighting various diseases.

Health Benefits of White Tea: High in antioxidants, aids in detoxifying the body, studies show white tea is excellent for skin/complexion reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Recent studies found that white tea can help your body’s immune system fight off viruses and dangerous infection-causing bacteria. The same study concluded that fluoride-rich white tea helps prevent the growth of dental plaque, the chief cause of tooth decay.
Health Benefits of Herbal Tea: Most are high in vitamin C and rich in antioxidants. The majority are naturally caffeine free. An herbal tea, tisane, or ptisan is an herbal infusion made from anything other than the leaves of the tea bush.The English word “tisane” originated from the Greek word πτισάνη (ptisanē), a drink made from pearl barley.
Herbal teas can be made with fresh or dried flowers, leaves, seeds or roots, generally by pouring boiling water over the plant parts and letting them steep for a few minutes. Seeds and roots can also be boiled on a stove. The tisane is then strained, sweetened if so desired, and served. Many companies produce herbal tea bags for such infusions.
Many blends of real tea are prepared by adding other plants to an actual tea (black, oolong, green, yellow or white tea). For example, the popular Earl Grey tea is a black tea mixed with bergamot, Jasmine tea is Chinese tea with Jasmine, and Genmaicha is green tea with roasted rice. Such preparations are varieties of tea, are not tisanes.
They are also many infusions made with herbs, flowers, roots, spices or other parts of some plants. The proper term for this type of beverage is “tisane”. Although tisane does not contain as much polyphenols, it does promote other various health qualities such as relaxation and calming effects.
Herbal teas are often consumed for their physical or medicinal effects, especially for their stimulant, relaxant or sedative properties. The medicinal effects of certain herbs are discussed under herbalism. The medicinal benefits of specific herbs are often anecdotal or controversial, and in the United States and elsewhere, makers of herbal teas are not allowed to make unsubstantiated claims about the medicinal effects of their products.
