    Tea


    De Eenhoorn supplies high quality tea from special tea plantations.

    Origin of tea

    Tea has a long history, with many different stories. In the beginning, tea was mainly used as a medicine, but nowadays it is very popular as a hot drink. Also iced tea is becoming increasingly popular. In China, tea plays a very important role, a country with a rich tea culture. Most tea comes from China. But nowadays the tea comes in more and more countries. In addition to Chinese tea, tea from Japan, tea from India, tea from Sri Lanka and tea from Taiwan.

    The tea plant or tea bush

    Tea comes from the tea bush (Camellia Sinensis) and is originally from Southeast Asia. The leaves of this plant are used to produce tea. Nowadays tea is grown all over the world on tea plantations or in quality gardens. From this plant both white tea, green tea, oolong and black tea are made. The tea plant is a shrub that stays green and can reach a height of 17 meters. It is usually pruned to less than 2 meters, due to the leaf culture. The plant has a strong root and yellow white flowers. The leaves are 4-15 centimeters long and 2-5 centimeters wide. Young tea leaves contain caffeine, polyphenols, protein, crude fiber, carbohydrates, pectin and essential oils. The top and top leaves have the most caffeine and polyphenols. These are the leaves that are most used for tea production.

    The productionproces

    The tea plantations are often high in the mountains on a mountain slope, between 1200 and 1800 meters altitude. The higher the plantation, the better the quality of the tea. Once the plant is 2-4 years old it can be harvested. The top leaves and the top are picked. The most used combination when making a good tea. The best result is obtained by hand picking. After tipping, the tea has different processing methods, depending on the type of tea. There are different types of tea: white tea, green tea, yellow tea, oolong tea, black tea, smoked tea and pressed pu er tea. There is unfermented tea, semi-fermented tea and fully fermented tea. During the fermentation or oxidation process, the leaves fade. This affects the smell, color and taste of the tea.

    White tea

    After picking, the tea leaves are first spread out to dry in the air. This is called paint-blowing. Thus the cell walls of the leaves are softened. Finally the leaves are pressed or steamed and ground in cold and warm rollers. After that, the tea leaves only need to dry. At the highest quality, the bushes are also protected from sunlight, resulting in a lower chlorophyll content of the leaves.

    Green tea

    After picking and fading the leaves, the tea leaves are steamed or woked immediately to prevent oxidation and to preserve the green color of the leaves. After this process, the leaves go through large rollers to break them. After this the leaves have to be dried and sorted.

    Yellow tea

    Yellow tea is rare and despite its soft taste, relatively unknown. It does not occur much anymore, but has many similarities with green tea. During the making of the tea the same methods are used, up to and including the point of the first heating. Then they undergo another operation. After the tea leaves are first dried in the air, yellow tea undergoes an extra step called 'men huang' (yellow stewing). In this step, the leaves are lightly and slowly steamed before being placed under a slightly wet cloth. This allows the leaves to 'breathe' and absorb their natural aroma.

    Oolong tea

    An oolong is a half fermented tea. This plant has large rolled blue-green leaves. After picking, these tea leaves are spread out in the sun to dry and wilt. The leaves are regularly shaken and rolled by hand, to destroy the edges. Oxidation or fermentation will take place in these places. As soon as the edges of the leaves turn red, they are baked in a pan on the fire for 15 minutes. This ensures that the fermentation process stops. This creates a half fermented tea.

    Black tea

    A black tea is a fully fermented tea. A combination of two leaves and a bud is always picked. After harvesting, the leaves must first air-dry, paint, to get rid of the first moisture. As soon as the leaves are flexible enough to be processed, they are rolled by hand. This releases enzymes that trigger the fermentation or oxidation process. This process ensures the final flavor and color of the tea. After rolling, the tea must ferment for a few hours (yeast). Finally, he is fired in a hot air oven to prevent rotting.

    Pressed tea (Pu Er)

    Pu er, or Pu Ehr, is like a good wine. The longer the tea matures, the better it becomes. A vintage tea is a black, fully fermented tea. After picking, the tea leaves are dried in the air until they are sufficiently soft to be processed. They are rolled by hand to start the oxidation process. Then the leaves must ferment for a few more hours. Finally, they are fired in hot air ovens. After that, it is stored for years in barrels for further ripening. The tea is pressed into 5-gram cubes. In the past, this pressed tea was also used as a means of payment. De Eenhoorn coffee and tea sells pressed tea from the Grand Cru tea line. This tea is specially selected by Madame Tseng, real quality tea.

    Earl Grey thee

    It seems that the Earl Gray tea is named after a British Noble. Through England the tea also ended up in the American colonies. Earl Gray is a black tea.

    Herbal tea

    Herbal tea, however, is not a tea. It is therefore called infusion. The most important types of herbal tea are the Rooibos, Chamomile and Verveine. They do not contain caffeine. Smoked teaIn smoked tea, the tea leaves are not steamed or stirred, but smoked over a fire. This is how the taste of smoke in the tea attracts. Jasmine tea Jasmine tea is a white tea or green tea with the taste of Jasmine. The tea is naturally flavored with jasmine blossom that is laid on top of the tea leaves for some time.

    Preparing tea

    There are different techniques and preparing methods to make tea. Depending on the type of tea and the occasion in which it is drunk. The Gong-Fu technique uses a Gaiwan (a bowl with lid and saucer) and very small cups that are preheated with boiled water. After this, a lot of tea is put in the pot and supplemented with water. The tea must draw short. You can reuse a tea several times (pouring). Each donation gives a change of taste. Also the kind of teapot can affect the taste. Not every tea has to be prepared with boiled water.
