Ren Shen Black Dragon Cha (Ginseng Oolong Tea) 150gm – Loose Leaf Chinese Scented Tea – Golden Ocean Chinese Tea

Loose Leaf Chinese Scented Tea

Scented teas are special tea that has been infused with flowers that have a strong scent like Lavender, Lemon Grass, jasmine, Osmanthus flower, Rose bud, Chloranthus flower and many more. These scents create an interesting taste and aroma in the different teas as well as health benefits.

The scented teas are processed with high quality green, white, oolong or black teas to yield a variety of refined flavours. Generally the tea is named after the particular flower it is infused with, for instance: Jasmine Tea, Osmanthus flower tea, Rose bud tea, Yulan Tea (Chloranthus Tea).

Scented teas were the most popular in China during the Yuan Dynasty (11271-1368). The Yuan Dynasty origins originated from Mongolian which is famous for cuisines with very strong aromas. The subtle and delicate teas consumed previous to the Yuan era did not complement the Yuan/Mongolian heavily spiced palates. The Yuan Dynasty located its government in Beijing in the north of China hence today scented teas are more prominent in the north.

Jasmine tea which is the most popular scented tea in China originated in the 3rd century after the jasmine plant was introduced from Persia. However it wasn’t until after the Qing Dynasty that jasmine teas went became a large scale production.

Put 10gms into a teapot. Use water at 100°C (212°F). Let steep for 1 minute then enjoy.

Once water level is low – add more water, and so on. Each subsequent brew should steep longer – 2 to 4 minutes. This tea can be used for up to 5 infusions.

Do not let steep for too long or over brew. It is important to have the correct temperature as if the water is too hot then sugars degrade and if too cold then the protein content does not extract properly.
