Around the World in 80 Teas
Around the World in 80 Teas

Since the eighteenth century, the United Kingdom has been one of the world's largest tea consumers. We are very proud of our relationship with the classic milky tea; everyone has the ideal preparation method, perfect amount of hot water to milk ratio, the exact time of brewing tea before adding milk. We would treat as an act of war if anyone would use a microwave or pour milk without taking the teabag out first (even typing those words sends shivers down my spine). Nonetheless, these days we are slowly accepting that there are other tea brewing methods out there and we are ready to explore the new and crazy world of the TEA!

Here is a very much subjective list of the best tea in the World!

Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder

If you are just starting your tea journey around the World, make Japan your first stop and you won’t be disappointed. The fantastic Japanese ceremonial grade matcha powder from Uji Kyoto is a first harvest stone-ground tea, it has the Soil Association certification and works wonders as an energy booster and fat burner detox superdrink. Spring Blossom matcha tea is vibrant green in colour and smooth, creamy and delicious in taste - without the unpleasant bitterness of the culinary grade matcha. Enjoy in 70° water and prepare it using a whisk for maximum froth…and the ceremonial effect.

Chinese Puerh Tea Cake

BUY ON AMAZON 1

Your next stop: China! The Chinese way of drinking tea is quite similar to the Japanese. Serving tea is considered as a way to communicate with other people and is a very important tradition. Try the Organic Yunnan BanZhang Ancient Tree Golden Buds Puerh Ripe Tea Cake – yes, a TEA CAKE! This is the perfect method to store the loose tea. The flavour and colour of Puerh Tea changes when properly stored over a period of time; the fresh raw tea brews into a bright, yellowish broth and possesses a strong, almost harsh flavour; aged raw tea brews an amber broth and has a mellow taste. The flavour, quality and value of Puerh tea constantly increases over time with proper storage, and, like wine, the longer the better.

Ceylon Tea

Welcome to Sri Lanka, the home of the famous Ceylon Tea. What makes Ceylon Tea the best tea in the world? It’s the fact that it’s what they call the “orthodox tea”.

The Goran Tea guarantees the sublime tea and perfectly authentic Ceylon experience.
