All about floral tea

Green tea, white tea, black tea, spicy, smoky, fruity… We love to talk to you about tea! Today we are telling you a little more about floral tea, its history, how to prepare it and how to taste it.

What is floral tea?

Let's dive back into history for a few moments to better understand the birth of “flower teas”. To add flavor to tea, it was in China that the idea of ​​incorporating flowers into tea leaves was born. At the time the dried jasmine flowers were the most used, today there is a very large selection of floral teas.

In order for floral teas to be rich in flavor, they must contain whole and quality dried flowers, the flowers must be handled as little as possible to retain all of their aromas. We advise you to favor loose teas for maximum flavor.

All about smoked tea

Do you like tea with a strong taste and character? Then you probably like smoked tea! You don't know him? Here's everything you need to know about smoked tea.

History of smoked tea

tea-plantation.jpg

Smoked tea is actually black tea that was the result of an "accident"! The history of smoked tea dates back to the 1820s. The Chinese army was passing through the Fujian region and looking for a place to rest.

The army then passed close to a black tea plantation and decided to settle there. The tea leaves were stored in the drying room, but were not dry. The tea farmer, to save his plantation, then decided to set the roots on fire and put the leaves on top to dry.

So the black tea ended up drying out faster, but also permeated the smell of the smoke, creating the smoky tea we know today.
It was in Europe that smoked tea first had the greatest success before gaining worldwide recognition.

The smoked tea has a very pronounced and inimitable taste, we find in particular flavors of wood, smoke, bacon, but also of pine or even notes of tobacco.

How to prepare it?

tea-degustation.jpg

For the preparation of smoked tea, you will need 30 cl of water heated between 95 and 100 degrees (Celsius) for approximately 30 g of grams of smoked tea

The infusion time varies between 3 and 5 minutes depending on your preferences. The longer the brewing time, the stronger the taste.

How to taste it?

This tea goes very well with salty foods, it is delicious during a brunch for example. It goes perfectly well with salmon, eggs, bacon. You can also use it for your cooking water, to give a little smoky taste to rice, Chinese noodles ...

Finally, you can definitely consume it during the day, accompanied by a square of milk chocolate to sweeten its flavor!
