Tea has long been an important part of Chinese tradition, becoming a regular part of everyday life. Chinese tea lore dates back hundreds and hundreds of years, holding a strong emphasis on the spirit and embodying clearness, respect, joy and truthfulness. There are a number of types of Chinese tea, including green teas, black teas, oolong teas and white teas, all of which you can find here on The Tea Centre.
Drinking Chinese Tea
There are a few things to keep in mind when enjoying some Chinese tea.
Have it while it’s hot!
Chinese tea will oxidize quite quickly after it is brewed, and the nutrients it holds will diminish the longer it stays in the cup. So make sure you drink it hit so you can get the best out of your cup of tea.
Drink strong Chinese tea in moderation
Having too much Chinese tea in one go will likely result in an upset stomach. Also, due to the caffeine content, it can make it hard to sleep soon after if you make a particularly strong brew.
Enjoy the process
Look at the colour of the tea, take in the lovely fragrances and flavours of the Chinese tea. Tasting the tea is a multi-sensory experience and you should be able to savor every moment as you drink your tea.
