Chinese Tea A Natural Cure Or Herbal Tonic

Chinese Tea

7 Flavors Of Chinese Tea.

Chinese tea has been a long time brewing… its many flavors  enjoyed throughout China for centuries.

First discovered by the Chinese around 2737 BC.  Chinese teas have enjoyed a long celebrated history – revered by millions world wide for its medicinal properties and distinctive varied flavors.

The full value of Chinese tea as  natural cures is gradually being revealed to the West – via credible scientific research.

Chinese tea in its many forms is much more than a herbal tonic.

Location, soil type, climate, altitude all play a part in creating different properties in Chinese green tea ensuring unique varied flavors, very much like fine wines.

Spring and Autumn are the two main picking seasons for quality teas, the optimum weather conditions are long periods of warm but cloudy days to gain the full flavor expected from premium tea.

Long periods of rain during picking time results in poor quality tea lacking in character; producing tea without the distinct flavors  and aromas  ardent Chinese tea drinkers look  for and expect.

This ancient herbal medicine once picked goes through minimal processing ensuring the naturally high levels of antioxidant’s and nutrients remain in the tea and are carried through to your tea pot.

Pu Erh or Medicinal Tea :

In China the health benefits of  Pu erh Tea are well known and accepted,  but these health benefits are yet to be fully researched in the West. Pu Erh tea is building a reputation as a Chinese slimming tea it is often used to ensure your metabolism functions correctly and to balance your body’s systems.

Wild  Pu Erh tea trees have been known to grow to 32 meters and survive more than 1,700  years, becoming a National Treasure. The hand picked tea from these wild organic trees is highly sought after by  Tea collectors or investors.

Often described as having the flavor of wood or as some people unkindly say the flavor of dirt, but to most educated tea drinkers Pu erh is the aristocrat of all Chinese teas, many good Pu erh teas are between 10 and 20 years old and in some cases 60 years old and highly sought after.

The dark black color of 60 year old tea is a little daunting but the flavor is amazing as we found on a recent trip to Fujian Province, and I was well aware we were drinking a piece of history.
