Long Ding Tea

April rang me from home, telling me that I have got a parcel delivered by Pos Laju. She asked for my permission to unwrap the Pos Laju envelop. Over the phone, she told me it was a rectangle box, which was nicely wrapped with a present paper. She also read to me the text on the box, "To Sheoh Yan, from S.H.A.U.N. and also a smiley face." Though, I am awaiting for a few parcels, I knew what it is from what my girl described. I asked her to hold on unwrapping the box until I came back.
Now I know Simple Person's name is Shaun. Nice name, I actually like this name, Shaun.
Two of them fight to tear off unwrap the present.
"What is this, mummy? Chocolate?"
"No, it is mummy's Green Tea."
I tried to google Kai Hua Long Ding(开化龙顶), and I am so happy to learn that this Chinese Green Tea is able to,
1. help boost morale
2. improve thinking and efficiency
3. reduce fatigue
4. antimicrobial, antibacterial
5.Weight loss

All these benefits are really beneficial for a full time working mother of 2 children, like me.
Thanks a lot, Simple Person of Simple Life. Only because I said in his blog that I like green tea, it is very thoughtful of him to send me a big tin of Chinese Green Tea, which I can last for probably a year. When you come to Taiping, I bring you to Casual Market.

    2. they say that u don't let the tea leaves soak too long in the water.
      if not the cafein will release ...

  32. Hi Sheoh Yan, good for you, drinking Chinese tea.
    My wife and I drink both, Japanese as well Chinese green tea every day past 30 years.
    I drink 5 to 6 cups a day.
    I usually buy Pi Lo Chun or Lung Ching, sometimes Temple of Heave, green tea.
    For Japanese, it's Japanese Sen Cha.

    Green tea is good for your health, lots of benefits too.
    Have fun, keep well.
