Tea Journey with Patricia Kaas

Health Tips

So I want to diversify my life and right now add new unusual colors to it – without waiting for a vacation, feel the intriguing charm of India, the warm sun of Sri Lanka, the mysterious calmness of China.

Perhaps that is why we are so interested in the traditions of exotic countries. Acquaintance with some customs helps us not only to better understand the culture of other peoples, but also to add new experiences to our own lives.

This is one of the reasons for the huge popularity of exotic tea ceremonies. Tea prepared according to an ethnic recipe is an easy way to get in touch with the atmosphere of a distant country.

I agree with this French singer Patricia Kaas. “One small cup of tea contains a bouquet of emotions, sensations and impressions from the whole country for me,” says the star. – From different parts of the world, I bring tea, which later reminds me of the place where I visited. The incomparable aroma and rich exclusive taste of the drink evoke memories with every sip.

Over the many centuries of tea history, its preparation has become a real art. The variety of tea drinking customs reflects the historical and cultural identity of each region. In China, for example, a woman and a man who marry share a cup of strong tea. The strength of the tea means that their love will be just as strong.

There are other customs in the Celestial Empire, in which tea invariably acts as a symbol of respect. So, until now, the Chinese attach great importance to the ancient ritual: a person who wants to become a student of a master in cooking, carpentry, martial arts and other crafts kneels and offers tea to the teacher. If the teacher drinks tea, then the student is accepted.

Often children who come to school for the first time also bring tea to their teacher. And, of course, hospitable Chinese always offer guests a cup of freshly brewed tea.

Hospitality traditions in many countries are associated with tea. Already in the XIX century in Russia there were certain rules for tea drinking. Close friends and acquaintances were invited to tea. And although they did not make a solemn ceremony out of tea drinking, as, for example, in China or Japan, they prepared for it carefully: the guests dressed festively, the hosts served sweets and various treats to the table.

The Latin name for tea Camellia sinensis literally means “Chinese camellia”. Tea leaves vary in shape and size, some can be the size of a palm, while others are small and narrow, like needles. .

The taste of tea depends not only on the type of tea plant and how it is processed, but also on the climatic conditions of the place where the tea plantations are located. And, of course, the method of brewing tea, which differs in each country, plays an important role.

But in order to get acquainted with the unusual tea traditions of distant countries, it is not necessary to go on a journey. “The new exclusive Lipton collection already contains tea flavors from different parts of the world, these are original blends, made taking into account the national characteristics of each country, real “tea treasures,” says Patricia.

Bright and tart taste gives Indian tea Lipton Bombay Bazaar (Bombay Bazaar) with berries and spices – anise, cinnamon, licorice and cardamom. Adding spices to tea is one of the most famous Indian ethnic recipes.

Delicate aroma keeps white tea Lipton Asian White (Asian White), which is based on “silver tips” – unblown tea buds, resembling tiny flower buds and giving the drink a delicate taste and aroma.

Strong spicy taste with light hints of honey and malt is Lipton Solid Assam (Strong Assam), tea leaves for this variety are harvested in the foothills of the Eastern Himalayas, in the Indian valley of Assam.

Reminds me of Russian tea traditions Lipton Russian EarlGrey (Russian EarlGrey) with a classic aroma of bergamot, cornflower petals and slices of lemon and orange peel. These and other tastes help to immerse yourself in the magic of exotic countries and understand the uniqueness of each area.

Lipton’s exclusive collection consists of nine blends of tea leaves grown in the highland plantations of India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, China and Vietnam, with the addition of flower petals, spices, fruits and berries. Thanks to the extra space in pyramid bags, when brewing, tea fully gives its taste, aroma and beneficial properties and gives vivid emotions from exploring exotic tea traditions.
