MR. CHAS KROLL AND HIS VIDEO


Happy Holidays,

I am deeply delighted to be invited to celebrate this holiday season with the American Tea Masters Association. In conjunction with this grand celebration, I was given opportunity to enjoy this remarkably creative Hallelujah Chorus video produced by the 5th Grade Class at the Kuinerrarmiut Elitnaurviat School in Quinhagak, Alaska. Originally intended for an audience of 200, the video has been viewed more than 1.5 million times on YouTube at the link below:-


With this, I write to express my heartfelt thanks to Mr. Chas Kroll, Certified Tea Master, Executive Director, American Tea Masters Association for his generous invitation to me. 

As a result, I decided to republish it in this blog so that you too have this golden opportunity to view this marvellous video.

Cheers and thank you,

Wishing you Happy, Healthy and Harmony New Year 2013,

HO YAN HOR PART II

HO YAN HOR PART 2

Very happy Day, dear tea buddies
This year's durian season in Malaysia was blessed with abundance of durians as it is marked by the mushrooming of many stalls and trucks selling durians all over the place.
For the past couple of weeks, we had daily heavy rainfall and certain low areas were hit by flash flood. With this type of season, the durian eaters will have their happy time enjoying the king of the fruits with a relative lower price than the past couple of years.
The durian season will normally be with the weather of its typical season of being very hot and dry as durians would ripen whenever the weather is so hot like this.
During times like this, it is very common to find people down with illnesses such as sore throats and dry coughs, not to mention some headaches as well as sore gums or toothaches which are caused by the growing heatiness in their bodies. With the consumption of durian, which is very heaty in nature coupled with binging of leftover New Year cookies, and too much fried or roasted foodstuff, our bodies are easily susceptible to the compounded heatiness. 
As usual, whenever I experience heatiness like this, I would reach for a bag of herbal tea called Ho Yan Hor which I had posted in my preceding post at the link below:-

http://teaartblog.blogspot.com/2012/12/ho-yan-hor-berbal-tea.html


A popular and effective tea that has been around for many decades.  When I was a kid, there was this van that would come to our neighbourhood once a month at night to promote and sell Ho Yan Hor tea packets, and it would have its loudspeakers blaring away in my neighbourhood.
I was made to understand that for those who are 40 years and above, their bodies cannot withstand the effects of herbal teas or remedies that are too cooling, but we can take Ho Yan Ho as it is mild, safe and effective to bring down our body’s overly heatiness. 
For those of you that are experiencing heatiness due to either weather or wahtsoever reason, do try a cup of Ho Yan Hor tea and find out yourself whether it will sooth you or not. Even coughs arising from heatiness can be relieved with this tea.  Let us know your experience. If you like, you may get a box of Ho Yan Hor at home and drink it on a weekly basis to balance the heatiness in our bodies. 
Append below please find a brief history and product information obtained from its company -
Applications: *
Helps to relieve heat, nausea, indigestion, and waning appetite. Use for the Common Cold, fever and flu. Also known to relieve headaches, hangovers, stomach flus and overall stress and burnout.
Trusted Tea for Generations…
The streets were no longer deserted when evenings came. People no longer had to be terrified of men in army suits. World War II had come to an end.
In the midst of the unsettled post-war period, while people were busy restoring buildings and businesses, houses and homes, this man in his 30`s, preferred to enjoy the tranquility which was taken away from his homeland when he came back to Malaya in 1941.
Having graduated from China`s Canton Wah Lam National Physicians School in 1941, he was then one of the very few young chaps who received tertiary education. Still young and not having the faintest idea about his next step in life after the war, he obliged to the request of a friend to bring into creation a blend of herbal tea for folks in town who were deprived of the wonders of Western medicines as a remedy for common ailments.
With his passion for herbs and the knowledge acquired, he embarked on a journey of discovery leading to a concoction of 24 kinds of herbs. Till today, Ho Yan Hor Herbal Tea has remained a masterpiece of extraction. The meticulous extraction process of the 24 selected kinds of herbs bares every leaf of its nutritional and therapeutic assets! A class of its own, this novel process is repeated several times to ensure thorough extraction. The extract is then absorbed onto tea leaves, dried and packed into sachet tea bags for consumers` convenience. When taken, this all-natural extract enables immediate absorption of its goodness into the body. Today, the 60-year-old Ho Yan Hor Herbal Tea remains a favourite among many and it is much sought after to relieve body heatiness, nausea, indigestion, and waning appetite.
Over a lapse of more than half a century, Dr. Ho Kai-Cheong`s humble herbal tea stall has grown to a modern manufacturing plant with WHO GMP status. Modernization has not deterred the house of Ho Yan Hor from bringing its ancient goodness to consumers of the 21st century. From formulation to processing, these have been carefully preserved over the decades. The modern manufacturing plant has not short-changed consumers of its invaluable goodness, but only adding to it hygiene and health.
More than a health heritage, Ho Yan Hor Herbal Tea is truly an illustration of `when east meets west`. This aged-old concoction has managed to strike equilibrium between alternative medicines and mainstream medical approaches. With every cup of tea, come not only nutritional and therapeutic values, but heritage and history! 

Hope you find it useful and helpful.

WINTER TEA

WINTER TEA



Hi! Tea buddies,



Do any of you know about the above "winter tea"? I would 

appreciate if you could share more about this tea.


I have not tried this type of tea before, but I was made to 

understand that if you ask any Taiwanese which is the best 

seasonal crop to consider to get the best tea, he will most likely say 

“winter tea, of course!“ 


The reason is that the cooler temperature and slow growth tend to 

produce the most fragrant and smooth liqueur, as its name reflects. 

Can someone tells us any other reason, if applicable?


One of such tea you can get is Longfengxia High Mountain Oolong tea, from the high mountain terroir of Shanlinxi. The steeped tea has a bright yellow hue, a faintly fresh and floral aroma, a pleasant fresh and floral flavour with sweet undertones, and a faintly sweet after taste. 


Kindly provide your feedback in the comment column provided 

below. Any gift of tea samples, magazines or books are always 

welcome here.


Thanks and stay tuned for more exciting updates.

I shall take you through one by one. Be patient.

How about kicking off with my local tea :-

I can’t recall how I got it in the first place.  I only have one last tea bag and have no clue whether I have tried it before.

This tea bag contains 3 grams. It is very convenient and easy to brew. Just steep the tea sachet in hot water for 5 minutes. Just like other teas, it is best consumed when hot and unsweetened.


2.     Jasmine Premium Tea

This sumptuous Chinese green tea infused with night-blooming Jasmine produces a lingering floral fragrance and sublime taste.

It is just like Jasmine Premium Tea, which comes with life span of two years from the date of production. This was produced in 2007 and I am also not sure whether it is still in production or not.

BLACK TEA

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 
Black tea is a type of tea that is more oxidized than oolong, green and white teas. All four types are made from leaves of the shrub (or small tree) Camellia sinensis. Black tea is generally stronger in flavor than the less oxidized teas. Two principal varieties of the species are used – the small-leaved Chinese variety plant (C. sinensis subsp. sinensis), used for most other types of teas, and the large-leaved Assamese plant (C. sinensis subsp. assamica), which was traditionally mainly used for black tea, although in recent years some green and white have been produced.

In Chinese languages and the languages of neighboring countries, black tea is known as "red tea" (, Mandarin Chinese hóngchá; Japanese kōcha; 홍차, Korean hongcha), a description of the colour of the liquid; the Western term "black tea" refers to the colour of the oxidized leaves. In Chinese, "black tea" is a commonly-used classification for post-fermented teas, such as Pu-erh tea; outside of China and its neighbouring countries, "red tea" more commonly refers to rooibos, a South African tisane.

YUNNAN CHITSU PINGCHA

YUNNAN CHITSU PINGCHA, also called Yuancha, is manufactured from pu’er tea, one of the profound famous teas of the world. It was made through a process of optimum fermentation coupled with high temperature steaming and pressing.

It affords a bright red yellowish liquid with pure aroma and fine taste, characterised by a sweet after taste of its own. Hence, it has distinct characteristics from other teas.

To drink such a tea, you will not only find it very refreshing and thirst quenching, but it also enhances digestion apart from relieving your fatigue or intoxication. These benefits are commonly known throughout the world since many centuries ago.

Shape

Pu'er is compressed into a variety of shapes. Other lesser seen forms include: stacked "melon pagodas", pillars, calabashes, yuanbao, and small bricks (2–5 cm in width). Pu'er is also compressed into the hollow centers of bamboo stems or packed and bound into a ball inside the peel of various citrus fruits.

Common name
Chinese characters
Description
S
T
Bing, Beeng, Cake, or Disc
Bǐngchá
A round, flat, disc or puck-shaped tea, the size ranges from as small as 100g to as large as 5 kg or more, with 357g, 400g, and 500g being the most common. Depending on the pressing method, the edge of the disk can be rounded or perpendicular. It is also commonly known as Qīzí bǐngchá (七子餅茶, literally "seven units cake tea") because seven of the bing are packaged together at a time for sale or transport.
Tuocha, Bowl, or Nest
Tuóchá
A convex knob-shaped tea, its size ranges from 3g to 3 kg or more, with 100g, 250g and 500g being the most common. The name for tuocha is believed to have originated from the round, top-like shape of the pressed tea or from the old tea shipping and trading route of the Tuo River.[18] In ancient times, tuocha cakes may have had holes punched through the center so they could be tied together on a rope for easy transport.
Brick
Zhuānchá
A thick rectangular block of tea, usually in 100g, 250g, 500g and 1000g sizes; Zhuancha bricks are the traditional shape used for ease of transport along the ancient tea route by horse caravans.
Square
Fāngchá
A flat square of tea, usually in 100g or 200g sizes, they often contain words pressed into the square.
Mushroom
Jǐnchá
Literally meaning "tight tea," the tea is shaped much like túocha, but with a stem rather than a convex hollow. This makes them quite similar in form to a mushroom. Pu'er tea of this shape is generally produced for Tibetan consumption, and is usually 250g or 300g.
Melon, or gold melon
Jīnguā
Its shape is similar to tuóchá, but larger in size, with a much thicker body decorated with pumpkin-like stripes. This shape was created for the famous "Tribute tea" () made expressly for the Qing Dynasty emperors from the best tea leaves of Yiwu Mountain. Larger specimens of this shape are sometimes called "human-head tea" (), due in part to its size and shape, and because in the past it was often presented in court in a similar manner to severed heads of enemies or criminals.

Whatsoever it is, please don’t take our word for it. But try it yourself and taste it yourself. Kindly let us know your real experience, and share it through the comment column provided below.
