Ming also claims black tea can help with blood circulation and white tea has been purported to have cancer-fighting properties. Vital Tea Leaf offers a special green tea called Angel Green. The store’s bestselling green tea in San Francisco is from China and is made with fresh, delicate, baby green tea leaves.
