Most people enjoy a nice cuppa, so I have put together the cuppa with a difference, just a few recipes to get you started in exploring this famous brew and make it more exiting just by using your imagination. So here I have brought together two of Chinas favourite sons. Tea and V.I.P Jiu. 8 Baijiu
Many people are surprised to learn that all teas, yellow, white, green, Oolong, black and pu-er are all made from the leaves of the same species of plant. Also there are hundreds of different brands for each category. While there are variety’s of the Camellia Sinensis plant, the weather conditions and the soil contribute in the final tasting of the tea, but the significant differences of tea type is developed in the drying of the leaves.
Teas can be scented with fresh or dried flowers such as jasmine or rose or flavoured with citrus fruits and herbs such as mint. Or simply a drop or two of flavoured essences. Herbal teas are not really a tea but an infusion of dried herbs. While all true teas contain caffeine, herbal teas do not. The history of herbs and spices are far more ancient than that of tea.
These recipes are a guide only, use your own discretion, for example if I use sugar and you don’t take sugar then simply alter to your taste. Also I am using the two mug method of making tea from leaf, place the desired amount of loose tea into one mug, pour over freshly boiled water, let it steep for a minute, strain into the second mug which contains the other ingredients and there you have your brew.
