Gourmet Tea Information
Looking for a "Gourmet Tea Information"? Well, you have come to the right place!
Dedicated to passing the latest Gourmet Tea Info, including storing tips and links to the best way to brew your loose leaf tea. We've got it all. So sit back, and have a read.
Look for the freshest greenest tea you can find. The same goes for herbs and flowers for a fusion. You do not want to buy 'old' ingredients.
Exception: Some teas are 'aged' to create their unique flavour, texture and aroma. I have seen tea available for sale that is more than 30 years old. These are rare, collectable teas that have unique, sought after flavours.
When shopping for most teas, you want to try to seek out those teas that have come from the first 'cut' of the season. The first harvest tea leaves have more nutrients and beneficial properties than second and third harvests.
Typically the earlier the harvest, the more you will pay for the tea. First harvests are usually more expensive than second and third harvests.
Buy only what you will use in a 4-6 week period, after that it will be stale. Sometimes you will find great 'buys' on bulk - don't do it, you will be disappointed and end up throwing it away.
Tradtional Tea Boxes are always a favorite for storing tea. There are some beautiful hardwood tea boxes available online, visit our Tea Boxes Information page for some of our top picks for storing tea in a tea box or tea chest.
Don't leave your precious tea in open bags or containers. Transfer it to tea boxes or tea containers to get the longest shelf life from your fresh tea!
Exception: Some of the aged teas are left in the open to age, they should be stored in the same method. If you are purchasing an aged tea or tea cake, ask the seller the best method for storing.
Is there such a thing? Remember the ingredients in tea bags are usually almost a powder.... Not the freshest tea on the block. While you may find it convenient, you will give up flavour and healing properties if you go this route. My advice, buy fresh, take the time to brew it right and you will always have a great cup of tea! We do have an excellent article on empty tea bags that can be hand filled with your gourmet loose teas. If you want convenience, check it out. The empty tea bags are really inexpensive.
