Tea Tasting 03/26 - 03/28

32 steps of tea-making techniques: Enjoy Tibetan Tea

The record of Tibetan Tea can be dated to the Tang dynasty; it is not only a tea with over a thousand year history but is also called the daily tea of the Tibetan people. There’s a Tibetan proverb saying that, “One would rather starve for three days than not drink tea for one day.”Another one says, “One day without tea makes a person stagnant; three days make a person ill.” Living in snowy highlands with severe cold, low oxygen, and strong UV radiation, the Tibet people’s diet lacks fresh vegetables and fruits and consists of high calorie foods such as beef, lamb, and dairy products. The people rely on Tibetan Tea for the needed multi-vitamins and minerals to help with digestion and decomposition of oil to maintain a healthy body.

The tea leaves of Tibetan tea are from high mountains over 1,000 meters. It is fully-fermented tea produced through unique and refined skills using mature tea leaves and stems. Tibetan tea is a most typical black tea and the production process can take up to 6 months, involving 32 steps of tea-making techniques. Among all kinds of teas, it is the most time-consuming and involves the most complex tea-making skills. The taste of Tibetan tea is strongly fragrant and induces salivation with a clean and crisp sweetness. It is indeed an excellent and gentle well-being tea.
