Why we like it
Tea and Zen philosophy have gone hand in hand for many centuries. Making this tea is supposed to invoke the teachings of Buddha. It’s a perfect choice for quiet contemplation. A good way to enjoy this tea is to use a gaiwan or a complete tea set and brew it properly multiple times. Each new brew will have a slightly different flavor. Following these changes is a big part of the Green Trip expeirience. It is believed that the last drops of tea in the gaiwan are the most precious because they contain most of the tea’s essence. So, remember to share the last drops of this divine beverage with all your guests. Tieguanyin is one of China’s finest and most famous teas. It’s a must-have for serious tea drinkers. And Green Trip won’t disappoint. Read more about how we do business.
Making your cup of tea
Tea can be steeped in a tea pot, gaiwan, or a strainer placed right in your cup. Feel free to experiment with time, temperature, and quantity. If tea feels a bit strong or bitter, just use less leaves or steep it for a shorter period of time.
The purpose of the first brew is to rinse the leaves slightly, so it shouldn’t last more than five seconds and should be discarded. Pour the hot water again (90 °C). This time, steep it for about half a minute. Avoid leaving the leaves soaking in water between brews, because it makes tea taste bitter and steals a lot of its flavor. If used properly, about six grams of Daoli Green Trip can yield six to seven middle-size cups of excellent tea.
To fully appreciate your Green Trip, try smelling the lid of your gaiwan between the brews to follow the changes in the aroma. Also, observe how leaves open up and return to their original shape.
Chinese people enjoy the original taste of tea, so they never use milk, sugar, or lemon. Daoli teas are great for hot and iced beverages.
