Picked only one time per year and never cut down the branches, plus the natural good environment, this wild-growing Dragon Well enjoys the strongest Chaqi among other dragon well, which can also be told by its big, fat buds than others.

About Longjing

 


 

 

Longjing, also known as Dragon Well tea is a well-known pan-roasted variety of green tea. The name Longjing comes from a literal translation and the other name stems from the Longjing village in Zhejiang Province in China. 

When speaking of pan-roasting, you should note that this is literally a method that has been used for centuries by tea masters and it involves flattening the leaves along the inside vein and frying them in a wok. This method serves a dual purpose as it stops the oxidation process that naturally occurs after picking, but it also gives a toasty aroma with a hint of the sweet taste you might find eating a roasted corn. The unique and rounded flavor coupled with a sort of buttery texture make this team really popular among green team enthusiasts and regular consumers alike.

As is the case with many types of tea hailing from this part of the world, Longjing is rich in amino acids, vitamin C, and catechins. For those of you unfamiliar with catechins, you should know that those compounds are naturally occurring antioxidants belonging to the flavonoids family. We will touch on the importance of those later.

 

Ingredients and Effects

 


 

For inexperienced tea drinkers, it should be clarified what are the usual ingredients of green teas in general:

1. Caffeine (Theine)

2. Polyphenols (Catechins)

3. Tannin (Flavonols)

4. Vitamin C, A, B1, B12, K, and P

Rather than getting into specific numbers and detail all the ingredients, we will focus on the two of the important ones relevant to the Longjing: Caffeine and Catechins.

 

 

How much caffeine in Longjing tea?

A single cup of Longjing contains less than a quarter the amount of caffeine found in a similarly sized cup of coffee. For those looking to get exact numbers, a cup of Longjing  contains between 15-25 mg of caffeine. This means that it can be safely used even just before the bedtime without the fear of affecting your sleep patterns. Catechins are what makes green tea in general beneficial to your health. For centuries, these naturally occurring compounds were thought to be useful for treating cardiovascular issues and promote general well-being. Although the specifics are not yet unequivocally proven by scientists, the chemical family these compounds belong to (flavonoids) are known to help maintain a proper dilation of blood vessels contributing to normal blood flow. Other effects have been reported, one of them claiming to have a positive effect on cholesterol.

 

Here is the list of the most commonly reported effects of the Longjing.

 

1. Enhances healthy digestion

2. Strengthens the immune system and helps it fight off infections, viruses, and bacteria

3. Improves the blood flow and lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases. Lowers cholesterol

4. Helps melting fat and thus aids in the efforts to lose weight

5. Reduces inflammatory problems and decreases signs of arthritis and rheumatism

6. Fights against plaque and other oral issues

 

Longjing for Weight Loss

 


 

It should be noted that while some of these effects are not scientifically confirmed, many of them have been attributed to most types of green teas and some specifically to the Longjing tea. To be specific, the weight loss effect has been reportedly better than with other types of herbal teas. Many dieticians often include Longjing tea in the dietary plans for the patients looking to reduce the excess weight, especially fats and fat deposits. 

 

 

Comment
