High blood pressure is one of the leading causes of death in the world today. In China, 19 out 100 people have high blood pressure. For local Beijing residents, a traditional method for easing this problem comes from drinking Lao Jun Cha, from Lao Jun Pai Shu Ya Cha (Lao Jun Hypertension Easing Tea) Franchised Store.
I visited the location in Chaoyang District. This herbal tea mixes several natural Chinese medicines that help balance your inner self.
As the shop assistants told me, Lao Jun Cha can soften, and improve the vitality of the blood vessels. The effectiveness of the tea has been proven over the decades. Its fame spreads mainly by word-of-mouth, which shows just how potent the tea is.
One Lao Jun Cha package cost RMB 200. The shop assistants speak a little English, and can give you a 10% discounts if you ask. If you live in near the store, you can have it delivered to you for free!
