Lapsang Souchong -Smokey Black Tea

Production

Besides Smoking Lapsang Souchong (LS tea), the rest of stages involve a high level of attentive professionalism, experience and dutiful workers.

Harvesting  commonly occurrs in the second week of May, due to the moderate climate in the Wuyi mountains

 other stages include: 

  • Withering Process
  • Pan-Firing
  • Adding Smokey Characteristics: is the most crucial stage for creating lapsang souchong tea. It begins with workers scattering the leaves into bamboo sieves, then placing them into a baking room to dry over a pinewood fire.

 Benefits of Lapsang Souchong

  • Improved Heart Health

LS tea antioxidants, fight free radicals in your body. Free radicals, in turn, are the product of natural, though often harmful, human oxidation.

  • Immunity

L-theanine - an amino acid  has several noteworthy qualities. L-theanine helps in the process of creating immunity in our bodies by attacking, harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi. 

One study found that the immune system’s blood cells in Tea drinkers responded five times faster to germs than those in Coffee drinkers. This translates into the fact, that it plays a major role in warding off minor illnesses such as the common cold and the flu.

  • Brain Function

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded the following:

The research project, conducted by the University of Singapore, saw 2,500 participants aged fifty-five or over undergo cognitive testing. Two years later, scientists re-measured everyone involved.

They then concluded that those who drank 2-3 cups of Black Tea a day, including Lapsang Souchong, had a 55% lower chance of suffering from cognitive decline.

  •   Weight Loss

Lapsang Souchong boosts the metabolism of fat cells, which in turn enables the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently. LS tea has quite low calorires (only 2 calories) per tea serving. If you are exercising, it produces better fat burning results.

  •  Healthier Teeth

Yet research indicates that balck tea is good for oral health. Lapsang Souchong has been seen to benefit teeth greatly. "The beverage interferes with harmful bacteria in the mouth that form dental plaque," said Christine Wu, professor of periodontics at the UIC College of Dentistry, who led the study.

The beverage interferes with harmful bacteria in the mouth that form dental plaque.

The study included several trials in which volunteers rinsed their mouths with black tea at different intervals. In one trial, those who rinsed with black tea for one minute 10 times a day had less plaque accumulation. In another, a single 30-second rinse had no effect, but multiple rinsings prevented bacteria from further growth and lowered acid production.

"If sequenced properly between meals and normal oral hygiene, drinking black tea could reduce the number of cavities and prevent periodontal disease," Wu said.

  • Reduced Stress and Diabetes Risks

The same chemical compound that boosts the immune system can also reduce stress levels. Perhaps even more astonishingly, this then reduces the risk of developing type-2 diabetes.

The reason is to do with the fact that chronic stress disrupts our sleep and our blood sugar levels. This then leads to increased hunger and comfort eating, ultimately resulting a cruel circle whereby you gain unhealthy levels of body fat. 

  • Lapsang Tea Helps in Fighting Cancer

At this point in time, there is NOT sufficient research results in proving if any Tea can help fight cancer.

However, there have been some promising findings, most notably from a 2015 meta-analysis. 

The research compiled suggests that drinking a cup of Tea a day (regardless of the type) reduces the risk of some cancers developing. Those who drank the “most” Tea, on the other hand, had up to a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none.

 Souchong properties, particularly its antioxidants, likely have something to do with this ability. 

 Stopping stress at the source could be part of the answer. Lapsang Loose Tea has such a capacity because of its abundance in L-theanine, which stimulates the brain while maintaining a state of calmness.

  • Helps with Skin Health?

There are many reasons, although it’s mostly because of its antioxidants, the polyphenols and Tannins in Tea, that can boost the rejuvenation of skin cells. 

Its catechins and flavonoids, may assist in preventing skin infections. Therefore, Lapsang Souchong caffeine with its anti-inflammatory properties  possibly support skin health.

It also has anti-ageing properties like, protecting you against UV radiation. Some researchers even believe it reduces blemishes, including acne, while at the same time combating puffiness.

Lapsang Souchong Side Effects

Those who’re sensitive to the Effects of Caffeine, should exercise caution. Lapsang Souchong Side Effects include: 

  • Restlessness and sleeplessness (insomnia.)
  • Headaches.
  • Increased urination.
  • Irregular heartbeat.
  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Tremors.

Does Lapsang Souchong -Smokey Black Tea contain Caffeine?

 Yes of course, but the caffeine in this infusion contributes to Lapsang Souchong benefits?

Dutch researchers can explain how and why. They conducted a study involving 44 young volunteers split into two groups. The first group consumed Black Tea extracts, while the second group received a placebo.

It found that the first group had improved focus during a mental performance test due to its caffeine.
