Produced in the highlands of Taiwan. The leaves of the Butterfly of Taiwan are colored brown to black on the outside. The inside has remained dark green.
This Oolong is more than 70% oxidised and combines well with apple pie, salmon dishes and quiches.
The Butterfly of Taiwan naturally contains little caffeine, making the tea also good to drink in the evening.
This tea is also widely used as a base for Kombucha. The tea is first fermented before consumption. Because of this, the tea is said to have some health benefits, such as detoxification of the body and aiding digestion.
Did you know that tea can also be wonderfully combined with savory foods?
I put it to the test with a delicious piece of old Cantal cheese, brought from the beautiful Auvergne in France. Cantal cheese has a strong taste. Spicy, slightly salty and with full tones in which a creamy, almost vanilla-like hint can be detected. Curious how it tastes in combination with an Oolong from Tanzania?
Last week one of our nicest customers, Chloe, came by for a pleasant conversation at our tea table.
Chloe started a podcast last year where she interviews people who play a role in her life. Today it was my turn and I was allowed to elaborate for more than half an hour about one of my great passions ... tea. Follow our conversation on Spotify!
I think every parent encounters this at some point. Isn't there a better alternative to lemonade or fruit juice for your kids? Even the healthy drinks are often still full of sugars and artificial additives. Tasty, but not really healthy. Offering only water is not always an option either. As a mother of two young daughters, I was always faced with this dilemma. Fortunately, as the owner of a tea shop, the solution was close at hand!
