Tea Time: Sencha with Chrysanthemum Flowers
I’m really digging green tea lately since I notice a big difference in my digestive patterns when I have about 2 - 3 cups per day. Before this becomes TMI, its very good for “keeping regular” if you have problems with constipation. If you don’t, green tea is still very good for you because it has lots of anti-oxidants. In fact, this might just be me personally, but I notice a difference in the quality of my facial skin when I drink lots of green tea. My skin looks more hydrated and bright.
Anywho, aside from health benefits and on to taste. I didn’t wanna have plain sencha because thats too basic for me so I added some Chrysanthemum flowers (tea) which my friend brought for me as a gift from northern China. (・ω・) I really like the taste of jasmine green tea because it has a mellow grassy flavor with fragrant, almost sweet floral tones. With that, I tried to make my own blend by mixing sencha with another flower and the result was successful! In this mix you can taste a mellow green tea flavor (as aforementioned) with a floral taste similar to chamomile but not as strong.
The blossoms look so pretty though. They come in a package dried and almost like a bud but when they are added to hot water (DO NOT use BOILING WATER to make green tea) they bloom and look like this.
AMG MA CUPPA TEA IS SO BIJIN DESU. （⌒▽⌒）
Lung Ching Shi Feng (“Dragon Well From The Lion’s Mountain”; other names: Long Jing, Lung Ting) is a superb class of Lung Ching chinese green tea I bought recently.
Every fine Lung Ching has four main characteristics:
- clear green colour
- thick fragrance
- full taste
Thank You for the Submission! :D
Not sure what it has to do with tea… but I like it!
