Afternoon Tea Week

Categories: Blog, Everyone is talking about Chash, NewsAuthor:

The UK has a long history with tea drinking; currently we consume 165 million cups a day, that’s 5 cups for every 2 people!

But what really made us dramatically increase our daily intake? One link is to afternoon tea

Now a popular tradition us Brits like to indulge in, it first started back in early nineteenth century. The 7th Duchess of Bedford, Anna, would often complain of a slump in her mood towards the late afternoon. In the nineteenth century people normally would have two large meals per day, one in the morning and one much later at night. Anna’s solution was to have a pot of tea and something light to eat mid-afternoon. This became a daily occurrence for her and soon she invited her friends for afternoon tea (before a walk in the fields nearby!)

It didn’t take long for this tradition to become a fashionable pursuit of social hostesses throughout the country

Today you will find Afternoon tea enjoyed in hotels and a variety of eateries. It is served between 3pm and 6pm. Traditional Afternoon tea is a pot of luxury loose tea served with light sandwiches and / or dainty cakes

To celebrate #nationalafternoonteaweek we paired an Apricot and Coconut cake with our beautifully floral Jasmine pearls. The sweet sharpness of the apricot is cleansed from the palate with the delicately floral and refreshing taste of the Jasmine tea. Perfect for a sunny afternoon!

Our Jasmine tea is of the highest quality. In springtime the tea pickers select only the finest buds. The buds are safely stored until summer, when the jasmine tree blossoms

The tea is then rolled into little tea balls, scented 12 times with night-blooming Jasmine blossom. Add hot water and watch as the pearls slowly unfurl! The infusion is soft and flowery

Across The Pond… Through The Generations!

I visited London last month and tasted some of your tea at a cafe.

I asked the waiter for the name of the company which made such great tea and he gave me your name. My question is whether or not you ship to the states – U.S.A.? I hope so as the tea was excellent. Thank you for your time.

Thank you, Dan, for your quick response.

I will be ordering soon to the delight of myself, my daughter and my granddaughter

 

Our pleasure, Pearl!

Coming Soon… Hangover Blend

From a remote village on the Zhangjiajie Mountain comes this traditional medicine

Traced back to the Ming Dynasty in 1385, it was principally used for wounds, colds and inflammation

Because studies show it protects the liver and reduces blood sugar and blood fat, it now has gained notoriety as a natural dietary supplement… and an aid to recovery from a hangover!

Zhangjiajie Mountain rises from 800-1500m in Hunan, China

Here the plant grows in a particular red sandstone soil, full of oxides. This soil encourages Proteins, Minerals, Vitamin E, Dietary Fibre, Amino Acids, and Polyphenols.

Hangover Blend contains 17 kinds of amino acid and the Flavanoid content is x20 the content found in Ginkgo!

Delicious and sweet, Hangover Blend is handmade

I used to be a PG Tips type of person. Dan introduced me to his fine leaf Assam – now I’m a total convert and I look forward to winding down at the end of the day with my own special pot. It’s a bit of ‘me time’
