The traditional method of flavoring: at a certain stage of processing, tea is flavored with an extract (or pollen – every company or small household has its own procedures and very reluctantly reveals them) of osmanthus. Similar teas on the market can be very different – they can be very expensive and high quality or even cheap (cheap leaves and cheap extract).
“Osmanthus” – Taiwanese oolong with the scent of osmanthus. There are several methods by which a similar tea aroma is achieved. Our Gui Hua is made by the traditional method.
The infusion gives a yellow color with a thin scent full of osmanthus and citrus tones, slightly sour and refreshing, which will withstand many infusions.
Momordica charantia (ku gua) - creeping or creeping, pumpkin-like plant with herbaceous shoots up to 5 m long. Its tendrils are branched, leaves typically palmately five to seven-lobed, flowers unisexual, five-fold, yellow in color, with distinct veins. The fruits are 5-25 cm long, spindle-shaped, with a wrinkled surface, ripening yellow. The plant has been introduced to virtually all tropical areas.
Dried hawthorn berries (shan-zha, lat. Crataegus cuneata) - helps good digestion, removes fats from blood vessels, lowers blood cholesterol levels and breaks down fatty acids (which helps it lose weight), lowers blood pressure and has heart-specific antioxidant effects, which can help fight most heart diseases.
"White King"-Jasmine tea is produced in many provinces in China and is very popular (especially in the north of the country). The tea can be dried with jasmine and its odor can be absorbed, or the jasmine can be added directly to the tea. In this way, the tea acquires the aroma of jasmine, but still retains its original taste. Jasmine tea is light and pleasant. "White King" itself is a relatively high-quality green tea with rich fluff, but the addition of jasmine further improves its quality.
The white king we provide is mixed with fresh autumn jasmine in a ratio of 4:1 (gradually use 4 kg of jasmine per 1 kg of tea).
"Snow Falling on Jade-Green Pool" - a beautifully poetic name hides a high-quality green tea from the early spring harvest from Mount Meng Ding which was richly scented with the best autumn jasmine, even in a ratio of 5: 1 (5 kg of jasmine flowers were used per 1 kg of tea).
Jasmine flowers are also abundant in the tea itself (although they no longer add other aromas - they have an aesthetic effect and give meaning to the poetic name of the tea).
The tea is a distinctly jasmine-sweet fruit flavor with a rich aroma that lasts for many pours.
Fresh, only lightly dried Lycium chinense (goji, wolfberries), which has been used throughout China for centuries.
The shape is a bit like raisins, the taste of the fruit is sweet with a slightly sour aftertaste.
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and among ordinary Chinese, goji is considered an indispensable food supplement. It is known for its benefits to the human body, both in young and old age. No negative side effects are known.
