Well known to be able to protect our body from hypertension. In traditional Chinese medicine point of view, it could warm our stomach, hence helping easier digestion of food.

Recommended Brewing guide:
We recommend using Chinese Yixing (purple clay) or ceramic tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Fill the teapot 1/2 to 3/4 full with tea leaves, or 2 grams of tea leaves for every 150ml of water if you are not using Yixing teapot. Steep tea leaves in hot water at about 100°c (212°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.

If you are using Gaiwan to infuse the tea, the first brew should be in a very short time. Take 10g dry teas for washing in 1 -2 seconds. Then use 3oz of water for first brew in 2 - 3 seconds. A strong fragrance of sweet potato will flow into your nose. The second to fourth brews can also be in 2 to 3 seconds. Later brews can be prolonged depending on your own taste. This tea is able to be infused over 12 times.
