Xian Cao Lu Cha (Vanilla Green 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.

Xian Cao Lu Cha (Vanilla Green Tea) 150gm

Traditional Chinese pharmacology reveals that vanilla helps to improve skin lustre and act as a calmative for the nervous system. Green tea is particularly rich in health promoting flavonoids (which account for 30% of the dry weight of the leaf), including catechins and their derivatives. The most abundant catechins in green tea is epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which is thought to play a pivitol role in the green teas anticancer and antioxidant effects. Catechins should be considered alongside the better known antioxidents such as vitamins C and E as potent free radical scavengers thus health supportive for this reason. Golden Oceans Vanilla Green Tea carefully selects the finest vanilla and green tea to combine the benefits of these health promoting properties. Enjoy this fine, sweet, fresh tasting green tea and the beauty and health benefits it brings you.

1-2 teaspoons per 6oz (180ml) cup. Use water at 90°C (198°F). Let steep for 1-2 minutes then enjoy. This tea can also be enjoyed after is has cooled. Sugar can be added if preferred.

Once water level is low – add more water, and so on, until the tea flavour is exhausted.

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.
