Fu Xi Tea Varieties

Fu Xi Tea is rich in selenium content in comparison with general tea varieties, such as Wu Zi Xian Hao Tea, Zi Yang Mao Jian Tea, and Zi Yang Yin Zhen Tea.

Selenium, discovered early in 1817, was considered to be a hazardous element. However, in 1973, the World Health Organization declared selenium to be a trace element essential to the human body.

There are two types of selenium—inorganic or organic. The former is found in soil and minerals while the later in fauna and flora. Approximately 15-30% of selenium can be dissolved in the tea liquid while brewing in tea sets.

Selenium helps strengthen immunity and prevent synthetization of ammonium. It proves effective for antitumorigenesis, antioxidation, purifying free radicals, deferring senility and recovering from radiation damage. Furthermore, selenium can also detoxify hazardous elements through excretion to protect skin and prevent cancer.
