'Better to be deprived of food for three days than of tea for one' - Ancient Chinese proverb

 

Story has is that in 2737 BC the Chinese emperor Chen Nung was heating water on a fire when leaves from a nearby branch fell in. This created such an aroma that the emperor could not resist and decided to taste the brew.

These leaves were from an ancient wild species of the black tea shrub.

From then on in tea drinking grew to be a cultural and ceremonial phenomenon in the Orient. Used not only as a drink for formal and informal occasions but also in traditional Chinese medicine and Chinese cuisine.

It was then passed on to other cultures as gifts from Buddhist monks. Eventually leading to tea sailing the world on clipper ships and trade routes, reaching Europe by the early 1600s. It was introduced to the Royals and rich as an exotic medicinal beverage that could promote longevity and cure many aliments.

All tea comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. It is the process involved that determines which variety it becomes... white, green, yellow, black, oolong and post-fermented. Green tea undergoes the least amount of oxidation. The oxidation process is halted by the quick application of heat after tea picking, either steamed or dry cooked in hot pans. Green tea is processed within one to two days of harvesting, and retains most of the chemical composition of the fresh leaves. Black tea, traditionally consumed in the West, has been completely oxidized. It is first withered to induce protein breakdown and reduce water content, then bruised or cut to release the leaf juices and enzymes that activate oxidation.

After trying several different green teas we decided to use China Green Sencha tea leaves in our blends because of the flavour. Not too strong or too weak. We found that our blends of flowers and fruit pieces complemented the Sencha tea.

There are many known health benefits from drinking green tea. Research suggests that regular green tea drinkers may have a  lower risk of developing heart disease and certain types of cancer. Improve cardiovascular health, lowering cholesterol which could reduce the risk of heart disease.
