Chinese Tea Mania

The Chinese tea

Chinese tea culture is the crystallization of Chinese people’s tradition and custom of drinking tea combined with the development of their technique of processing tea leaves to produce the final product. Chinese tea is a shrub ( Thea sinensis ) which has fragrant white flowers and evergreen leaves.

Poets and writers appeared who extolled the virtues of Chinese tea and described the delightful effects of drinking tea one cup after another. Ahead of them, ancient linguists had taken great pains to create five hieroglyphs all meaning the same thing, which was tea, each with a different pronunciation and some slight difference in connotation.

There are 18 regions in which Chinese tea is grown. The most important regions are Zhejiang, Hunan, Sichuan, Fujian, and Anhui. China’s “first crop” teas are plucked from mid-April to mid-May. This harvest is thought to give the fines quality tea and produce over 50 percent of annual production. The second crop is picked in early summer and a third autumn crop is harvested in some areas.

The Oolong tea

Oolong tea generally means semi oxidized tea. There are a variety of oolong teas produced on the island, such as oolong tea, pouchong tea, jinxuan oolong tea, cuiyu oolong tea, sijichun oolong tea, tikuanyin tea and baihao oolong tea. Each of them has a distinctive taste and fragrance.

Oolong tea history began within the lands of China, mainly the vicinity of Mount Wu Yi from the Fujian Province sometime during the Qing Dynasty. One Chinese tea history tale says it was developed by Tea Masters in homage to their translation of Black Dragon Tea, Oolong, which is a traditional Chinese symbol of good fortune.

The luxurious varieties of Oolong tea include Wuyi Rock Tea, Taiwan Oolong and Tieguanyin tea, etc. Tieguanyin produced in Fujian tastes rich in flavor and smells aromatic and fragrant.
