Four Season Qing Tea (Loose Leaf)

 

A strong and full tea with a unique and refreshing after-taste. Four Season Qing Tea has experienced a surge in popularity over the last 10-15 years in Asia, and is by far the most difficult taste to describe. Though further along the oxidation spectrum than green tea, 4 Season Qing is still very delicate, and yet delivers a lasting after-taste. Just remember to brew to taste!

For one cup of Qing tea, use 4-5 grams (approximately 1 heaped tea spoon) of leaves. After the kettle has boiled, wait 1-3 mins for the water to cool, and then add to the leaves. Leave to brew for 5-6 minutes and remove the leaves. Enjoy! Remember that you can also enjoy a “second wash”. Just add more hot water (the same temperature as before), but leave it to brew an extra minute or two.

*Also, remember that if you’d like to have a cup of tea, but don’t want too much caffeine in your diet, you can brew the tea for a minute and then throw out this first brew. This contains about 80-90% of the caffeine. After this, brew your tea as you would a second wash (same temperature, but brew for slightly longer).

Description

Four Season Qing Tea (Ching Tea)

 

Ingredients: (Four Season) Qing Tea Leaves

 

Brewing tea is (believe it or not) a somewhat complex process with many variables that will all affect the taste of your tea.

Leaf quantity (+/-) (affecting strength)

Temperature (+/-) (higher temperatures will generally draw out more polyphenols and therefore give a more astringent taste)

Length of brew (+/-) (affecting strength)

Type of water (hard/soft) (harder water will give a bitter taste, while soft water will give “flat” tea) 

These are all things that will directly impact on the taste of your tea, so play around with each of these variables to find your perfect cup! Below are general guidelines to make a cup of tea using Qing tea leaves.

For one cup of Qing tea, use 4-5 grams (approximately 1 heaped tea spoon) of leaves. After the kettle has boiled, wait 1-3 mins for the water to cool, and then add to the leaves. Leave to brew for 5-6 minutes and remove the leaves. Enjoy! Remember that you can also enjoy a “second wash”. Just add more hot water (the same temperature as before), but leave it to brew an extra minute or two.

    This is my favourite tea for drinking throughout the day. The soft earthy flavour is perfect for the morning as it’s not too strong. It’s not as sharp as jasmine tea and not as plant flavoured as some other green teas. The taste is difficult to describe, but if it suits your palate as it does mine it would be at home in your tea selection.
