🌱 NEWS: New Items, Updates, Industry News
Last updated: FEB 25, 2017


  According to Flavorman, the 2017 year beverage top flavour is TURMERIC. It is one of the trending flavours for 2017 among coconut, herbal essence and spicy accents.

A new growing market in North America: CASCARA, a coffee cherry tea (but actually, a fruit tisane). Cascara comes from the coffee plant and is the dried skins of coffee cherries. Its cup is fruity sweet with notes of rose hip, red current, cherry, hibiscus, and mango or tobacco!

BLUE COLOURED TEA? The content of Butterfly Blue Pea Flowers makes the infusion naturally Blue coloured with the notes of sweet vanilla custard!

KENYAN Teas are all natural and almost organic by default: They are grown on estates, which do not use pesticides or herbicides because pests that typically damage tea crops are not found at their high altitudes. Instead, the estates use nitrogen as a natural fertilizer making them almost organic by default.
 


NEW in JANUARY:
❀ A new Organic Green
Artisan tea is available: Organic Lu Mu Dan Wheel.
Kenya White Rhino Matcha is back in stock.

The following new varieties of teas are expected in 2017:
❀ White: Kenya Nandi Safari White Tea; Wellness Green: Organic Jas'vert
❀ New tea spices: Cornflower and Red Cornflower Petals, Honeysuckle Petals, Organic Lemon Verbena, Lily Petals, Jasmine and Mallow Flowers, Red Plum Petals, Lemon and Orange Pieces 1/4 Cut.

New varieties of Rare Teas are also in our inventory: ❀ Alishan High Mountain Oolong - classic and rare top 5% oolong tea Champagne of Taiwan, and a Handcrafted Exclusive: ❀ Kenya Silverback White - it is believed to be one of the rarest teas in the world - only 600 kg of it are made on an annual basis. This tea is made from only the choicest, silken and velvety white tips, flushed by highly specialized tea bushes in the Great Rift Valley's cool early mornings. The fresh leaf is hand plucked, hand rolled and dried naturally. The process is exceedingly laborious and even the most skilled tea artisan can produce only about 1kg per day. Cup characteristics: Breathtaking flavor with notes of honey, roasted nuts and Madagascar vanilla.
❀ A delicious extra: prepackaged in 100 g packs with the original labels Jasmine With Flowers - a green tea with surprising body and a captivating floral character accentuated by specially selected May Jasmine blossoms, prepackaged in 100 g packs with the original labels Yorkshire Earl Grey, and Lime Leaves (Thailand, Bua Yai) - touch of musky notes with sweet and strong citrus notes.

BREWING
Before you start to brew a tea purchased at our shop, please check the recommendations printed on the packing bag of each tea. They are specific to each variety, including water temperature and hot /iced brewing methods. For the best aroma and inviting colour of your cup we strongly recommend the use of mineralized distilled water, or at least freshly boiled filtered water, which doesn't contain a large addition of fluoride and has pH 7 or more (alkaline). Do not boil the same water twice.
The best quality tea is one that is hand plucked.
Tea contains polyphenols (catechins, anthocyanins, phenolic acids), tannin, minerals and vitamins. Polyphenols are tea compounds that act as antioxidants and are beneficial to health and a healthy diet. Please note: White, Green, Oolong, Wellness, and some of Black teas are high or ultra high in polyphenol antioxidants. They can also be either stimulating or relaxing. Please drink them in low to moderate amounts, do not overdose. Instead, try to replace an extra dose of caffeine with physical activities.
Do not mix Tea, including Herbal and Herbal Blending Components except Dried Fruits, with any beverage containing alcohol.
Do not wash inner parts of a teapot with any soap.
Store your teas in glass containers with a tight closer, in cool place and away from direct light, to maintain their freshness, full body, and aroma.
How To Brew: Heat water to boiling. Warm the teapot or an individual cup with a small amount of hot water. Toss out this water and then add the tea leaves to the teapot or cup. Pour boiling water over the tea ( for some teas, if recommended, cool the boiling water for a minute before brewing ). Enjoy your tea time!
Tea can clean the wounds and cuts, and prevent bacterial infection. Use strong tea infusion to wash the wound.
Tea leaves can absorb sweat when you sleep - dry the tea leaves after they were used and put them in pillows. You can also use tea as a foot bath to get rid of the smell and relieve the pain of gout.
Researches show that drinking one or two cups of mild tea after meals can help to break down the fat. It can also help you low the plasma cholesterol and prevent diabetes and arteriosclerosis.
