If you've managed to get your spring cleaning done, now would be the perfect time to plan a backyard or patio tea party with friends. There are so many great choices of tea available and many of them actually have great health benefits. I have recently expanded my inventory of exotic Asian tea which is all grown and imported from China. This quality Asian loose leaf packaged tea makes a great alternative for alcoholic drinks. Not that there's anything wrong with a little sake or wine party later ;).
Here are some of the new Asian tea flavors now available:
China's Zhejiang province and is made by rolling the large leaves into small balls that blossom in hot water. It has a satisfying, full-bodied flavor with a hint of smokiness. It is also known as Green Pearl Tea and is one of the world's most popular green teas. This tea is often served as a breakfast tea and pairs well with any food.
Fujian Province and is made by withering the leaves over pine fires, then rolling and pan frying them. After being pressed into barrels, the leaves are covered with cloth to ferment. Then they are fired, rolled and dried over pine fires. It can be served with or without milk and goes well with breakfast foods and fish.
High in the mountains of China's Fujian Province, the downy buds of this fine silver needle white tea are picked and sun dried in April. In August, the dried buds are laid beneath a bed of fresh Jasmine flowers for a week, infusing the tea with the fragrant aroma of the flowers. Silver Needle tea has been grown in this beautiful, scenic place in China for over a thousand years.
southern province of Yunnan and has a surprisingly sweet undertone and smooth body.
