Yunnan black Tea is a Chinese black tea which is used as a relatively high end gourmet black tea. Teas grown in the Yunnan Province of China prior to the Han dynasty were typically exported in a compressed form similar to modern pu-erh tea. Dian hong is a relatively new product from Yunnan that began production in the early 20th century. Naturally caffeine-free, Red Tea brews an aromatic, amber-hued cup. Sip and you’ll taste a faintly sweet, mellow character, low in tannins with very little bitterness. Like black tea, rooibos is oxidized. Like green tea, it is brimming with powerful antioxidants, but is naturallycaffeine-free and actually contains even more health-promoting properties.
A University study has concluded that short and long-term jinjunmei black tea consump-
-tion everses endothelial vasomotor dysfunction in patients with coronary artery disease.
This finding may partly explain the association between tea intake and decreased cardi-
-ovascular disease events.
In 2006,a German study concluded that the addition of milk prevents vascular protective
effects of tea.Theaflavin-3-gallate,a theaflavin derivative found in black tea,could reduce
the incorporation of cholesterol into mixed micelles.
