Lu Chun Cha Lingzhi Tea - The Healthier Way to Spend your Tea Time

Compared to coffee, tea is more widely used & known for it's medicinal values. Correct me if I'm wrong. Some of the top grades are Black tea, Green tea and Oolong tea. One of the most loved properties of tea is it's antioxidant factor - handles the free radical made-mess in our bodies, keeps our arteries well-flushed and of course, the anti-aging agent.

Here today, I'll focus on one type of tea - Oolong tea. I have my reasons and you'll find out later why.

Benefits of Oolong tea

Oolong  tea is said to be beneficial in heart health, reducing the risk for heart-related disorders, reduces inflammation and lowering blood cholesterol levels. Thanks to it's content of polyphenolic compounds. It also contains numerous minerals and vitamins vital to our health such as copper, magnesium, zinc, selenium, potassium, vitamins A, B, C, E and K.

More of Oolong's contribution:
  • Effectively metabolizes fat, cutting the chances for obesity.
  • Removes free radicals, as I've mention above due to it's antioxidant compound.
  • Helpful in managing skin-related disorders, particularly eczema, studies have proved that constant consumption of Oolong tea improves skin condition.
  • Great for your bones & teeth, Oolong tea fights tooth decay , strengthens bone and boosts normal bone growth.
  • Could be useful as a treatment for  diabetes.
  • Retards cancer cell's growth.
  • Improves stress condition.
Lu Chun Cha Lingzhi Tea

This is Lu Chun Cha. The tea that I've been waiting ages to make a come back. It's production was put to a halt for a period of time due to shortage of raw materials, but worry no more, it's now back! Since our company couldn't find an established supplier for a particular raw matetrial , that is Gynostemma Pentaphyllum,which is a plant, they've decided to plant it themselves and now this great tea is back in the market.
So, what else is in this tea :
  • Oolong Tea
  • Lingzhi A.K.A. ganoderma,not sure what this is? read more about it here >>
  • Semen Cassiae (i'll briefly explain about this shortly..)
  • Gynostemma Pentaphyllum (elaboration coming up..)
These are the major contributors in this tea. And they all play a role for a better health in their own respective ways. We've all heard about Oolong. Lets now look at it's other major ingredients and just what can they do for our health.


Actually I've mention Lingzhi in few of my previous articles, but for the sake of new readers, I'll explain about this magical mushroom in brief. 
Lingzhi is used in Chinese Traditional Medication for ages, only now it has been brought out for the whole world's benefit. In ancient times, only the royalty gets to it. No layman could even have a glimpse at it, how precious this Lingzhi was back then. But, thankfully now it's no longer hidden secretly behind the walls of Castles in China. It's now freely available for all.
How does this Lingzhi helps our body? Read on:
  • Balances our bodily functions, meaning if we have high blood pressure, it helps to tame it down yet at the same time if another individual is having low blood pressure, it elevates the pressure back to normal. This is not a drug. This is a health food. It brings back normality to to the body's system. Thus, it' s consumable by all. It's not made for certain ailments, it just puts your body back where it should be. Yeah, sometimes I get confuse with my own words.
  • Strengthen immunity.
  • Balances hormonal functions, including pancreatic activity.
  • Retards ageing.
  • Eliminates stubborn toxins buried down in cells of our bodies.
  • Helps to unclog arteries.
  • Balances metabolic activity and boost energy.
  • Reduces fat and cholesterol accumulation.
  • Fortifies and improves digestive system.
  • Effectively treats ulcers and burns.
  • And much, much more that I don't think I'll end about it here. So, if you got any questions regarding Lingzhi , you can always drop me an email at
Semen Cassiae, What are it's benefits?

Okay, moving on with the next major component of Lu Chun Cha. Semen Cassiae.These are actually dried seeds. Let's take a look at it's health benefits:

  • Eliminates pathogenic heat from the body.
  • A tonic for the eyes, kidney, liver and bowels. It is said to remove excessive heat from the liver, improves eyesight, and relieves constipation.
  • Inhibits fungi growth & improves skin infection.
  • Helps in weight losing programs. 
  • Reduces blood cholesterol level.
Gynostemma Pentaphyllum

A relative to the cucumber / gourd , this gynostemma pentaphyllum belongs to the cucurbitaceae family. It is also commonly known as jiaogulan or southern ginseng due to it's similarity of chemical composition to that of the original ginseng(the saponins).
Containing saponins, which is known as gypenosides(the compound which causes foam), trace minerals, amino acids, vitamins as well as proteins,it is known for it's antioxidant properties (i think we all know this has to do with anti-ageing, youthfulness and rejuvenating.) and it's adaptogenic nature(being an adaptogen , it is capable of increasing the body's resistance to stress, trauma, anxiety and fatigue). 
It's high content of saponins (which is said to be at a higher level compared to ginseng) increases it's efficacy in regulating bodily systems, such as blood pressure, reproductive functions, digestive system, immunity and much, much more.

More of it's contribution to a healthier body:
  • Improves liver function to reduce blood cholesterol level.
  • Improves fat metabolism, thus increasing fat elimination and decreases fat sediments in the body.
  • Fights obesity.
  • Facilitates nutrient absorption & strengthens digestion.
  • Boosts or calms the nervous system in accordance to the needs of our body, helps in managing our stress level as well as maintaining a healthy brain function.
  • Regulates a normal hormonal function in both men and women.
  • Maintains a good cardiovascular health.
  • Improves sore throat and bronchitis.
Okay so, that's about it. So, this tea, Lu Chun Cha, contains all these wondrous ingredients that is made to enhance vitality, youth and pumps up your energy level. As we all already know, tea has a lot of contribution to a better health, but this particular tea is more than just an ordinary tea. With the combination of all these great compositions , it's no surprise when many testified of various health improvements. This tea improves your health, it is not made for a specific disorder or a specific disease. It can be taken as a beverage or as treatment. For more enquiries, please do not hesitate to email me at for more information. I just can't explain it all in this one article.
