Bandeau excellence

The different teas

When it comes to teas, the choice is particularly wide. I have been able to find high quality teas from all over the world, especially in Asia, the land of tea cultivation par excellence, for a real taste pleasure.

Black tea

This is an oxidized tea, a process that offers a better preservation. Note that what is called "black tea" in the West is called "red tea" by the Chinese. Several steps are necessary to produce a quality black tea such as Darjeeling or Yunnan: - withering; - rolling; - oxidation; - roasting; - sorting. One of the best known and most consumed black teas is Earl Grey, a black tea associated with bergamot.

Green tea

This time, we discover a tea that is not oxidized, three steps are enough to work the tea leaves and produce a high quality green tea, namely: roasting, rolling and drying. It is the most popular tea among Asians because of its quality and the many virtues it is said to have. One of the most famous is Matcha green tea.

Red tea

The one also called " rooibos " is not a real tea. Indeed, it does not come from the tea plant, but from a shrub native to South Africa. It is very appreciated for its absence of theine. Indeed, theine can cause anemia in people who do not fix iron well. People affected by this problem who appreciate the pleasures of a good tea turn to rooibos.

White tea

Here the tea leaf is in its most natural state. Only two steps are necessary to produce a high quality white tea: withering and drying. Very often, white tea is actually composed of buds. We are dealing here with a fine and subtle tea.

Oolong tea

It is a semi-oxidized tea, halfway between black tea and green tea. Low in theine, it is also suitable for people who have problems with iron absorption, but who want a real tea. Moreover, theine has exciting properties as well as caffeine, this tea is perfect for those who want to drink it in the evening. It is the fermentation time that will determine the flavors of oolong tea and its quality.

Smoked tea

This is a very special grand cru tea that appeals to tea lovers. Smoked tea originates from China, but it is in the West that it is most successful. It too is a semi-oxidized tea between green and black tea. It is smoked after the harvest on a wood fire to give it a totally unique flavor. Lapsang Souchong is the most famous smoked tea.

Flavored and fragrant tea

I propose you natural tea to know the real flavors. But I have also chosen to offer you flavored tea to discover new gustatory horizons. A cup of green tea with mint is the pleasure of many tea lovers. But if it is one of the most talked about beverages, it is far from being the only one and tea lovers are looking for more complex flavors. Red fruit, orange blossom, cinnamon, grapefruit, bergamot, vanilla, passion fruit, the best teas are available in a variety of flavors to offer a comforting hot drink.

The power of infusion

If I have chosen to offer you some great teas, I have not forgotten the herbal tea that seduces most of you. The infusion is to be preferred by people who wish to drink a delicious hot beverage throughout the day, but who have a problem with theine. It is also a solution for the evening to avoid any excitant. Symbol of relaxation, infusion is a must. Based on aromatic plants or citrus fruits, the herbal tea is declined for a tasting able to seduce all the palates. Verbena, the great classic, mint, lime, lemon, lemon-lime, rosemary, sage, thyme, the choice is extremely vast for a natural aroma. Enjoy the many benefits of a vervain infusion or a mint infusion and respect the infusion time, as is the case for tea, to appreciate all the flavors of these hot drinks. Let it steep for a few minutes, I indicate the ideal time in each product sheet. Also consider the temperature of the water, boiling water is not always recommended, do not wait for 100° to remove your water and prepare your tea or infusion.

Forget the tea bags and use a tea ball, tea tongs or a teapot. And if you still want to drink tea in bags because it is more convenient for you, especially at the office, you should know that there are empty bags that you can fill yourself. A solution that combines economy, pleasure and quality of each infusion.
