Tea Facts
There are three natural subspecies of a tea plant: Chinese variety, Assam variety and Cambod variety. Chinese subspecies grow to a height of 3-4 meters and form a dome shape. Assam subspecies are trees with the height of about 18 meters and large leaves up to 30cm long. Cambod is a hybrid of Chinese and Assam varieties and is mainly used to create new cultivars since it can be hybridized easily. There are thousands of tea plant varieties created by natural selection or crossbreeding. They all differ in leaf colour and size, colour of flower at its base (can be pinkish or yellowish), caffeine level, content of polyphenols and tannin. - Sources: Jane Pettigrew's World of Tea - Discovering Producing Regions and Their Teas; The Drink That Changed the World by Laura C.

BREWING, TEA FACTS
Before you start to brew a tea purchased at our shop, please check the recommendations printed on the packing bag of each tea. They are specific to each variety, including water temperature and hot /iced brewing methods. For the best aroma and inviting colour of your cup we strongly recommend the use of distilled demineralized water, or at least freshly boiled filtered water, which doesn't contain a large addition of fluoride and has pH 7 or more (alkaline). Do not boil same water twice.
The best quality tea is one that is hand plucked.
Tea contains polyphenols (catechins, anthocyanins, phenolic acids), tannin, minerals and vitamins. Polyphenols are tea compounds that act as antioxidants and are beneficial to health and a healthy diet. Please note: White, Green, Oolong, Wellness, and some of Black teas are high or ultra high in polyphenol antioxidants. They can also be either stimulating or relaxing. Please drink them in low to moderate amounts, do not overdose. Instead, try to replace an extra dose of caffeine with physical activities.
Do not mix Tea, including Herbal except Dried Fruits, with any beverage containing alcohol.
Do not wash inner parts of a teapot with any soap.
Store your teas in glass containers with a tight closer, in cool place and away from direct light, to maintain their freshness, full body, and aroma.
How To Brew: Heat water to boiling. Warm the teapot or an individual cup with a small amount of hot water. Toss out this water and then add the tea leaves to the teapot or cup. Pour boiling water over the tea ( for some teas, if recommended, cool the boiling water for a minute before brewing ). Enjoy your tea time!
Tea can clean the wounds and cuts, and prevent bacterial infection. Use strong tea infusion to wash the wound.
Tea leaves can absorb sweat when you sleep - dry the tea leaves after they were used and put them in pillows. You can also use tea as a foot bath to get rid of the smell and relieve the pain of gout.
Researches show that drinking one or two cups of mild tea after meals can help to break down the fat. It can also help you low the plasma cholesterol and prevent diabetes and arteriosclerosis.
