THE ART OF TEA

THE ART OF TEA

Tea is both a culture and art to Chinese and Japanese.  There are elaborated rituals when it comes to traditional tea making, preparation and drinking.

While Japanese tea is predominately the green variety, Chinese tea has a more diverse collection: red, green, black, white, fermented…It is also interesting to note that while Japanese tea’s pricing has been quite uniform and stable, Chinese teas has been speculated like no other commodity!  The same pu-er tea leaves have sky-rocketed to thousands of US dollars a gram to a mere few dollars a Kg within a few years.   

While tea is widely recognized as good for health and safe to drink, the focus of the discussion here is on Herbal Tea+ – tea from well-known medicinal herbs. 

Though known as Medicinal Herbs, these are actually herbs known to have special healing capabilities. The knowledge of herbal healing power exists in many cultures and traditions, from India to Indonesia, Malaysia, even to Europe and the America.  They have been passed down for thousands of years – regardless if modern sciences have proven it or not. In certain context, they are called TCM herbs. 

We are certainly not for the idea that herbal medication can perform magic or miracle.  A leaf or a seed can cure cancer.  That has never been the case from ancient times.  However, for many conditions, especially for chronical and noninfectious conditions, herbal remedial sometimes can achieve great wonders. 

In TCM, a large proportion of herbs are classified as both food and medicine:  Examples include ginseng, Chinese yam, licorice root, dates, goji, lotus seeds, honeysuckle, ginger, mulberry, orange, dandelion etc.

Herbal tea is proven to be safe for regular and daily consumption just as any other tea.  It hydrates and gives additional health benefits.  Each chosen herb has its unique chemical and biological characteristics.  What we focus on is its mineral contents, its antioxidants composition and tastes.  Through well-tested composition, we are proud to deliver a set of tea targeting at common ailments/issues. 

Due to the caffeine level in common tea, it is not suitable for excessive consumption.

On the other hand, herbal tea is formulated with no or little caffeine.  Herbal tea can have different taste combinations.  You will not be bord of it easily or become addicted to one as people may do for coffee or common tea.
