tea_on_the_trail. Flash freeze here last night, with snow on top, so me & my hiking boot

Flash freeze here last night, with snow on top, so me & my hiking boots are grounded. Stocked up with tea, though! {Phew}  A few days ago I enjoyed some outside tea with Blind Tea Tasting:  @storyofmytea 's clever version of a tea box:  5 mysterious teas arrive with steeping notes, a tasting wheel, and **The Envelope, Please.** -an envelope with the answers. My initial box includes a variety- a traditional Green tea blend,  a traditional Puerh blend, an unblended Puerh,  an Oolong, a Tisane. I subscribed on Kickstarter and received the same rewards as other backers. You can indicate tea preference, and update at will. . Oh, the potential here! Is it tea education, or is it a game?  A tasting party with friends?  Spealing of which, some people synchronize a subscription with a long distance friend,  and taste together across the miles. . Not telling what Tea 6026 is, because that might spoil the fun.  Also, then I'd have to admit it took me several sips (first steep, tho!) to identify one of the most famous teas ever. Oops!  There's a clue! Sorry. #notsorry . So the dry leaf smell was sweet grass. For the first 3 steeps I really searched for a sweet or fruit note, and I just didn't find any.  Light toasty notes, stronger in steep 3 & 4. After that, honestly, I just wanted more tea.  Not to search for anything else, just to enjoy the tea flavor.  That's when I had a memory... of tea in Chinese restaurants as a little girl. Small Chinese restaurants in Canada in the 1970s are entirely  different than the typical American version in Kentucky in the 2010s. Oops! Another clue! I better stop there. 😉 . P.S. if you want to guess what #tea6026 is, check my story today for a poll, and a picture of the liquor. Or feel free to DM me, if you wish! . . Cup: modern, Tognana . Tea: ...Seriously?  You didn't think I would give it away that easy, did you?

Tea to the rescue. This month’s Tea of the Month is our Healthy Immunity Infusion. Packed with lots of vitamin C, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties to help you during the winter months. A medium bodied brew with woody sweet undertones, hibiscus and a hint of ginger to finish.

So, let's say you've graduated from teabags, but you're still most familiar with western style tea. Your love for tea and all flavors & cultures diverse is taking you farther and farther down the rabbit hole ( to quote Mr TeaOnTheTrail). How do you know a tea is authentic?  How to determine you're not squandering the grocery money on a wannabe... or worse...a truly premium tea at a premium price, but since your teapot is less than 100 years old it tastes like dishwater. (exaggerating for effect, folks 😉) . @fieldtocup offers 3 types of tea boxes: for 3 stages of tea-curious people. The Adventurer box they shared with me is orthodox, unblended premium tea. For instance, Malawi Grand Cru, an easy to steep, honeyed tea that just kept giving layers of flavor with each sip.  I fell hard in love with a Vietnamese Oolong from old trees: smooth, rich & mild, with sweet vanilla notes in the first steep and increasingly chocolate notes in later steeps. An oolong ceylon baby, if you will. I was delighted not only by a delicious 2009 Shu Puerh but with an envelope of Chrysanthemum buds for the traditional pairing, if I so desire. Rounding out the box was a delicate aged Bai Mu Dan white. Oh, yes, a bonus tea- which I'm enjoying so much it will be featured on its own. . Bottom line:  this box is well suited for the somewhat experienced tea fan, with adventurous choices and well selected teas. Discoverer & Explorer boxes are geared toward the newer tea-curious person, at lower price points. All @fieldtocup teas include detailed steeping notes (for different vessels, even!). So a true tea novice need not feel intimidated, and others won't worry about ruining a delicious steep. . . Cup: Modern, unmarked. Saucer: vintage, handgilded. Unmarked but appears Japanese. . #happysipping #teaonthetrail #passiontea #outdoorswoman #teatasting #mykentuckyadventure #teaphotography #acuppadate #finechina #teainnature #teacuptuesday #hiking #getoutdoors #drinktea  #teacupoftheday #teawandering #wander #trailhike #nowsteeping #artisantea  #totd #collectandstyle #tealoversunite #teaclub #teasubscription #teachat #teaofthemonth #fridaytea

Session of the month project! . Do you know When all the parameters of temperature, leaf per water ratio, timing, etc seem to have found a deep harmony with our taste and body? That's the true tea experience that every tea lovers like me want to reach in front of its beloved tea leaves and so I want to share with you when I'll have such a good tea session which make me say "WOW" 🍵✨ . I have several good tea sessions per months but this project has the goal to underline the tea which has the most interesting flavors profile or which create more discussions between me and my guests. . So, because there are a lot of possibilities, we will see at the end on January my first tea session of the month and why it is the best one for me 😉 . I'll take a trace of my tea sessions by filming their in time-laps (I'll not record every tea session because I do a lot but if necessary I'll have my phone with me to catch the precious moments of the "WOW" tea sessions) because it's quite funny 📹😁 . #tea #teatime #teasession #month #teaofthemonth #tè #cha #gongfucha #timelaps #gaiwan #teaware #tealeaves #taste #enterteaner

Typically thought of for brewing coffee, the French press can also be used to brew tea. Place the tea in the French press and pour water over it. Place the top on and let the tea infuse. When the tea is done brewing, slowly depress the plunger and pour the tea. The French press is easy to use, easy to clean, and if you have a larger press you can brew tea for multiple people at once. Just be sure there is no water left in the bottom of the press between infusions or the tea can become bitter. - #tea #threebrewstea #healthy #drinktea #teabox #teasubscription #subscriptionbox #teasubscriptionbox #teatime #looseleaftea #looseleaf #mycupoftea #lovetea #detox #healthytea #energytea #relax #sleeptea #herbaltea #allnatural #healthandwellness #wellness #monthlytea #teaofthemonth #teablends #frenchpress #frenchpresstea #frenchpressed #frenchpressmornings #frenchpresscoffee

I asked, you voted, I drank! Well, tea, at least. Between a Pu-erh and a Shou Mei, 66% of you went with shou mei! And, to continue with my obnoxious rhymes, I steeped shou mei in a way that may be cheerful and gay. Ergo, here i do show - if i may, i say. (How do you like my new submission to @happycatpottery’s contest? Little background, this is a spur of the moment thing that i edited into this post after making that little limerick - i JUST found out about it, so decided, “eh, why not enter it? I doubt i’d win, but it’d be fun, and i enjoy interacting with you all in this community.”) As some of you know, Shou Mei is a White tea from china - as to what that means, it sort of depends on who you ask, but from what i understand it is a classification of tea similar to green only in terms that it is not oxidized in the slightest - however, it also solely used the buds of tea trees, before the leaves really begin to develop. They are distinguished by the maturity of the buds, as well as what, exactly, is picked - at least, this is my understanding. Feel free to correct me! Shou Mei is a “byproduct” of the production of BaiHao Yhinzen - aka, silver needle. This specific shou mei was aged 4 years and was part of @verdanttea’s December #teaofthemonth that i am still happily sipping away on, and I can’t help but review it as it was such a strange experience. It started off very mellow, with an almost compost flavor, and by the third steep it developed a legitimate spiciness that i first mistook as me oversteeping it. Upon closer examination, the tingling taste it left behind was not my own error, but a very unique feature of this tea that makes me understand why some label white teas as spicy. Then, the fourth steeping was once again mellow, but with a very bold tone to it throughout. The subsequent steepings from there were a mingling combination of the spiciness and mellow earthiness within this tea, with a slight burst of sweet fruitiness and custard that i feel categorizes unaged whites. #tea #teatime #teaporn #teaset #gongfucha #whitetea #ceramics #pottery #gaiwan #teatography #mindfulness #steepology #lazycatteapoetry

Another method of brewing loose leaf tea is with a mesh ball. You fill the ball with tea and place it in your tea cup. Pour water in the cup and let it infuse. The advantages of the mesh ball are that it’s relatively easy to use and clean, and it’s reusable. However, when tea leaves are steeped in water, they expand. Due to the compact size of the ball and depending on how much tea you use, the tea can expand and fill the ball tightly with tea leaves, which makes the infusion process less effective. - #tea #threebrewstea #healthy #drinktea #teabox #teasubscription #subscriptionbox #teasubscriptionbox #teatime #looseleaftea #looseleaf #mycupoftea #lovetea #detox #healthytea #energytea #relax #sleeptea #tisane #herbaltea #allnatural #healthandwellness #wellness #antioxidants #monthlytea #teaofthemonth #teablends #meshball #teaball #teainfuser

Lockhart Winter Gold - Frost Tea. This tea is called as a frost tea because it is made during the cold months of December to February, when the frost hits the valleys. The tea leaves when hit by frost in temperature below four degree centigrade crystallizes the water and the cells of the leaves, concentrating the aromatic compounds. The cooler temperature also allow the estate to wither the teas at a more moderate rate, which in turn draws out more of the floral and fruit notes when these teas are fermented and dried after an Orthodox rolling process to bring out the inherent taste, flavour and aroma.

Brewing loose leaf tea with a paper or cloth bag is an option. First fill the bag with tea, then place the bag in the tea cup and pour water over over it. The advantage of cloth or paper bags is that they’re disposable. However, they’re wasteful, non-reusable, and depending on the material, it can contain harmful chemicals just like tea bags and tea pyramids. Some cloth bags are reusable but are a hassle to clean. Tea tends to not infuse as well in bags compared to other brewing methods. So bags are an option, but one of the least desirable options. Besides, we brew loose leaf to get away from those icky tea bags, right? - Link in bio for more info on the “learn” page. - #tea #threebrewstea #healthy #drinktea #teabox #teasubscription #subscriptionbox #teasubscriptionbox #teatime #looseleaftea #looseleaf #mycupoftea #lovetea #detox #healthytea #energytea #relax #sleeptea #tisane #herbaltea #allnatural #healthandwellness #wellness #antioxidants #monthlytea #teaofthemonth #teablends #teaeducation #noteabags #teabags
