The teas listed below are some teas we've handpicked with antiviral and immune-boosting properties, but any teas from the shou, sheng and red tea categories may have inhibitory activity against 3CL and Corona Virus. 

*In a recent government study, "we screened a natural product library consisting of 720 compounds for inhibitory activity against SARS 1, which is 95% identical to SARS-2 or Corona. Two compounds in the library were found to be inhibitive: tannic acid and 3-isotheaflavin-3-gallate (TF2B). These two compounds belong to a group of natural polyphenols found in tea. We further investigated the 3CL inhibitory activity of extracts from several different types of teas, including green tea, oolong tea, Puer tea and black tea. Our results indicated that extracts from Puer and black tea were more potent than that from green or oolong teas in their inhibitory activities against 3CL." -*
