編み物しながら、こんなお茶いかが? 03

While knitting, have a cup of tea.
We asked Mari Kawanishi of " TE tea and eating " to select the recommended teas for you to enjoy.

Continuing from Columns 01 and 02 , where we asked about the appeal of Chinese tea
I was taught how to enjoy the tea that will be sold exclusively at the online shop !

Sparkling tea at home this summer!

We hope you enjoy this summer! What a proposal, soda wari!
Just put the tea leaves in the carbonated water and let it sit overnight.
A refreshing taste and a clean and clear scent...
A sophisticated sparkling tea is ready.

We would like to introduce Mr. Kawanishi's selection of teas that go well with carbonated water and cold brew, and are of course recommended as hot teas.

Wenshan Baozhong is one of Taiwan's oolong teas.

“Oolong tea is a semi-fermented green tea. If black tea that is fully fermented is 100, the degree of fermentation of green tea is 30 to 70%. It has a low odor and a taste similar to green tea.In Taiwan, it is called "Ching Xiang", which has a clean and fresh scent and a fragrant and sweet aftertaste.This tea is a typical oolong tea in Taiwan, and is often drunk. There are many people who are interested in Taiwanese tea.”

A clean, pleasant aftertaste.
If you have a bittersweet image of oolong tea, you will surely be surprised.
It is nattok to be addicted to from this tea.
Please try Bunzan Baotane that Mr. Kawanishi bought in Taiwan.

Furthermore, if you want to feel the world of tea one step deeper,
Bunzan Baotane, Touhou Bijin, Mari Hakuryuju = 3 types of drink comparison set was also prepared.

“Eastern Beauty is also Taiwanese oolong tea, but it has a high degree of fermentation and is similar to black tea. You can enjoy the rich aroma of noble flowers and fruits. The color of the tea leaves is also very beautiful.It is very popular in Europe and is called oriental beauty.I hope you can feel that the scent and taste of oolong tea differ depending on the type.When carbonated water is used, the scent is more enhanced, just like champagne. It tastes like

Mari Hakuryuju is jasmine tea.
It is a kind of Chinese tea, but it is classified as flower tea, which is classified as one of the six major classifications.

“It is made by transferring the scent of jasmine flowers to tea leaves. The gorgeous scent of jasmine goes well with carbonated water, so I combined it. It is said that it works to enhance the digestive function of the body and activates the decomposition of fat.It is recommended to use it with carbonated water or cold water to prevent harshness and off-flavours.”

This time, the 3 photos with carbonated water are all jasmine tea, but you can enjoy any of the 3 types of tea.

Now, let me show you how to enjoy carbonated water.
5g of tea leaves for 500ml of carbonated water.
After adding the tea leaves, close the lid and leave it in the refrigerator overnight.
Be careful when opening the lid.
The carbonated water is about to spurt out, so open the lid slowly and slowly.
After opening, transfer to a glass.
Perfect for a welcome drink for hospitality,
It's sparkling tea.

“It looks like it will overflow with force, so please be careful when opening it. You can enjoy any of the three types of tea, and cold brewing is also OK. Just leave it overnight.It is also recommended to put it in your own bottle and carry it (pictured below).Please enjoy it according to your taste and mood."

Just add tea leaves and wait, it's very easy and delicious. Please, try it!
Next time, we will introduce the standard way to enjoy it by pouring hot water and tasting it!
