<![CDATA[2016 Autumn Pasha Gushu - Gu Hua Gu Shu Pu Erh Tea Cake 200g]]> https://www.teasenz.com/pasha-mountain-gu-shu

Typically, Spring teas are thicker and stronger than Autumn teas. Yet, this Autumn raw pu erh is an exception. The leaves of this cake from trees in Pasha mountain (1700m) that are several hundred years old. The key is that the trees are only harvested twice a year, allowing the leaves to accumulate more flavour and nutrition.

Just look at the appearance of the cake, and you can see that the meaty leaves got the care they deserve. They’re manually compressed with a more evenly tightness in every part of the cake.

If you’re up for a surprise, the flavours and aroma of this pu erh is on a completely different level compared to regular pu erh. It has a wonderful hui gan and its deed flavours are mind elevating.

After our tasting session, we yet again confirm that the wet leaves are fatty and have great elasticity. All signs that confirm we’ve found ourselves a small batch of pu erh with unlimited aging potential.

About Pasha

‘Pasha’ means ‘tall and straight’ in the local Aini tongue. According to locals, the Pasha area was established in 18th century by men and women from Jinghong and Damenglong area in Yunnan. Before they settled there, the area had no villages or cultivated land. The area was mountainous and filled with large ancient trees. Yet, the first Aini people settled there due to the fertile soil that allowed them to cultivate different crops and harvest tea for a living. The tea growing area is around a elevation of 1700m. Due to the powerful soil and an ideal climate, the trees in Pasha are known for there early budding and long harvest period.

<![CDATA[Calming Chrysanthemum Tea - Tai Ju Hua Cha]]> https://www.teasenz.com/chrysanthemum-flower-tea

Steep these calming Chrysanthemum buds a flowery cup of tea or make it part of a tea blend such as this traditional Chrysanthemum Goji tea in the video below!

 

What are the health benefits of Calming Chrysanthemum Tea?

Chinese people drink loose chrysanthemum tea to decrease body heat and drink during meals to help digest food. However, recent scientific studies find out health benefits of loose chrysanthemum tea far exceed these. Chrysanthemum tea is known to clear head colds and alleviate sinusitis pains. This is due to the vitamin C content of the tea. It is also antiviral in nature and thus a reliever of head congestion which are often viral infections. In addition, chrysanthemum tea naturally lacks caffeine which makes it resistant to caffeine-induced side effects such as anxiety, irritability and nervousness.

Furthermore, chrysanthemum tea is known for its stimulating properties and is thus used to refresh the brain and alert the senses. It energizes all the senses in a jiffy and also calms them down for better and clear perception. Finally, the benefits of drinking chrysanthemum tea includes soothing sore throats and helping to cure red/itchy eyes, dry, fluid-deficient eyes, and dark spots in the eye region.

Shennong (author 'chajing') about this tea: “protracted taking may disinhibit the blood and qi, make the body light, slow aging, and prolong life.”

What is the difference between Chrysanthemum tea and Chamomile tea?

Both chamomile and chrysanthemum are in the same plant family: Asteraceae. Chamomile is produced in the West while Chrysanthemum is produced in the East.

How to steep Calming Chrysanthemum Tea?

It's recommended  to steep Chrysanthemum tea with a covered glass teapot. Use about 2 teaspoons for every 500ml of water. Steep with hot water at 95°c for 4-5 minutes for the first and second brewing. Increase time for further brews.

<![CDATA[Yunnan Gold Tea]]> https://www.teasenz.com/yunnan-gold-tea

 

Our Yunnan Gold is the highest grade of Dian Hong tea from Yunnan. Different from other Dian Hong teas, this version contains lots of golden tips, brewing a golden orange cup with raw honey flavour. An excellent alternative to the Keemun of Anhui and Lapsang Souchong of Fujian with a highly distinctive taste.

Buy your bag of Yunnan Gold today and taste the sweet tippy leaves from the ancient tea trees. Good for multiple steeps. Drink it pure or even use it to brew and ferment a high end kombucha.

History

Though Yunnan is the birthplace of tea with thousands of years of history in pu erh tea production, the very first black tea from this region dates back less than 100 years ago. Black wasn’t produced until 1939 when the first Dian Hong tea was successfully processed in Fengqing.

Health Benefits

  • Diuretic effect: the combination of caffeine and other substances in this tea get rid of toxics and decrease excessive amount of salt. The latter is often related to the hyper tension. When consumed in moderation, it could also helps against heart diseases.
  • Anti-inflammatory effect: polyphenols in black tea can reduce inflammation and infection. The leaves in a tippy golden black tea like Yunnan Gold will even contain more polyphenols. This is why the leaves are also used in some region in China to coat wounds. In addition, it’s often consumed in situations of food poisoning.
  • Detoxification effect: tea polyphenols also at the same time can absorb and get rid of heavy metals and alkaloids found in modern food. Eliminating fatigue: caffeine in black tea has a longer-term effect (though less intense) and is therefore more effective in reducing tiredness and improving focus. It also increases blood flow and thereby improve the digestion of food.
  • Tooth health: believe it or not, drinking Yunnan Gold can strengthen your teeth! The downside is that black tea can potentially stain your teeth, so you’ll have to brush at least twice a day to keep them white.
