Description

Description

Well Tea, offers a combination of French roses and fermented Chinese Dian Hong Black Tea. Dian Hong is the highest grade of black tea in China and is also known as Golden Tip Tea. For this reason, it has a proud history of being presented as a gift to guests of the Chinese emperors.

Dian hong black tea leaves are grown in Fengquiq county, which is one of the oldest locations of tea plantations in the world. Dian hong, however, is a relatively new variety of black tea. Discovered a mere 100 years ago, Dian hong was first popularised by Fery Shaoqiu in the 1930s. All the leaves are picked by hand and then processed using the ‘Gongfu’ technique, passed down by generations of tea plantations workers.

Rose Dian Hong Black Tea contains an abundance of orange pekoe which creates a bright orange-red color in the teacup. When combined with the French roses and black tea leaves you get an exceptionally rich taste and mellowing brand of WellTea.

So whether you have visiting dignitaries of your own or just want to reward friends with the experience of a cup of tea, Rose Dian Hong Black Tea is a premium grade choice certain to delight every guest that sups on a cup.

BREWING INSTRUCTION:

 

THE WATER TEMPERATURE

  • The golden rule about water temperature is never to use boiling water on the tea, whatever kind of tea you are making.
  • Green Teas require water at 70°C and black teas require water at 85-90°C.
  • These days you can get kettles which enable you to choose your water temperature.

 

THE AMOUNT OF TEA

  • Custom dictates that 4 grams are sufficient for one cup. But the amount is partly a matter of preference.
  • In the case of Assam tea, which is naturally very robust, you might want to reduce the strength and brew 3 grams instead of 4.

 

THE BREWING TIME

  • This is a very important step in the art of tea-making. In fact, the brewing time varies depending on the type of tea. An over-brewed black tea will develop a bitter taste whilst an under-brewed white tea will be flat and insipid.
  • Black teas are normally brewed for 2-3 minutes, green teas for 3 – 4 minutes. It is a good idea to check the brewing time before making the tea because some teas need to be infused for very specific times: for example, Jade Pearl is left to infuse for 7 – 20 minutes, whilst Oolong tea will need 5 – 7 minutes for its bouquet to develop fully.
  • Brewing is normally done with a lid on so that the tea retains all its aromas.
