My Sweet Dandelion Tea



vienna teapot-FNL

I happen to love a nice hot cup of tea when I want to relax after a busy afternoon.

Do you enjoy a cup of tea?  There are so many types and flavours of teas which makes a person wonder what to buy to try.

There’s White tea, Green tea, Black tea, Oolong tea, Herbal teas and on and on!

I have read that:

All tea comes from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. The styles of tea are produced by altering the shape and chemistry of the leaf, unromantically called ‘processing’ or ‘manufacture.’ This lesson will look at simple tea production.

Tea processing is five basic steps; some teas don’t utilize all of these steps, while other teas repeat them several times. Basic processing is Plucking, Withering (allowing the leaves to wilt and soften), Rolling (to shape the leaves and wring out the juices), Oxidizing (see below), and Firing (ie: Drying).

Now this is all very interesting but all I want to do is boil the water in my kettle and make my tea!

Recently I have discovered a favourite tea called, Roasted Dandelion Root tea and it is wonderful.  It has a nice taste and the producers of this product state that “gently stimulates the liver and supports healthy digestion.”  If this sweet cup of tea can do this for me then this is a bonus.

So shall we go and enjoy that hot cup of tea?  Now I must have one!  Can I make one for you?

  2. I am sitting in Starbucks waiting for my husband’s meeting to be over, drinking a decaf coffee, and eating pure protein bites. Great finish to the day, after working with a lady showing her basic boxing, and then a session with my boxing trainer.
