Type: Oolong

Harvest: Autumn

Altitude: 1000m

 

A medium to dark oxidised Oolong Grown in Phoenix Mountain in Southern China. This is one of China's oldest and most famous teas and was first cultivated about 1000 years ago. It is made from semi-wild trees which are over 100 years old and charcoal roasted for a richer flavour. The result are long, curled, dark amber leaves which brew the most delicious tea.

 

The cultivar used to make this tea is usually Shui Xian which is the same as Da Hong Pao. However, there are 2 types of Phoenix Oolong - ones made from cloned tea garden plants and the other made from single bushes grown from seeds. Sometimes this tea is referred to as Dan Cong which literally means 'Single Bush'. But not all Phoenix Oolong is actually a Dan Cong, in fact most tea buyers will buy garden bush tea which is being sold as single bush. Similarly, any tea tree that is grown from a seed could be called Dan Cong so this name is a bit erroneous.

 

Whatever the details of the name, one thing is for sure, the flavour difference between garden Phoenix Oolong and true Dan Cong Phoenix oolong is remarkable. This is because of a few factors:

 

1. Garden tea is younger

The best tea comes from leaves that have high mineral content. The younger the tea bush the smaller the roots which means that they cannot absorb many minerals from the soil. Dan Cong tea trees are older and because they have been started from seed, have a very strong trunk to make deep roots and absorb minerals.

 

2. Garden tea is bunched together

Because the garden tea is cultivated together, each plant is competing with many neighbouring tea plants for the same minerals so they just can't get as much. Dan Cong is seeded sporadically in amongst rocks and other plants so there is less competition.

 

3. Variety of vegetation

Garden tea has almost no variety of vegetation. Semi wild Dan Cong however has plenty of vegetation and rocks around it. As the plant leaves fall or the rain filters through the rocks the soil is enriched with more variety of nutrients for the tea to absorb. This allows the tea to take on some of the characteristics of the nearby fruit trees flowers and rocks.

 

4. Clone vs Seed

Garden tea is cloned tea made from cuttings. This produces an identical genetic version which allows for a more consistent flavour. However, seed grown Dan Cong has  its own individual genetic makeup which creates more interesting and unique flavours.

 

5. Harsher environment

The semi wild Dan Cong Phoenix Oolong grows on steep and rocky mountains (it is called a rock oolong). This puts the plant under stress which means that the tea grows slowly. The slower the growth the richer the mineral content in the leaves making a more powerful and fragrant drink.

 

Because of the genetic variation and the rich diversity of the vegetation, true Dan Cong Phoenix Oolong has a large variety of flavour profiles. Tea farmers have tried to define them in groups  pomelo flower, magnolia, ginger flower etc. Our tea is Honey Orchid.

 

Our Phoenix Orchid Oolong is made from true Dan Cong (Single Bush) semi wild trees that are over 100 years old. With this mineral rich raw material the tea is processed by hand for a few days:

 

1. Outdoor withering - to begin to reduce moisture and allow flavour compounds to interact as the cell walls begin to breakdown.


2. Indoor withering - to slowly reduce moisture for further flavour development.


3. Oxidation - over about 12 hours the leaves are alternately shaken by hand in bamboo containers and left to sit and oxidise. The process is repeated up to 6 times until exactly the right level of oxidation is achieved. This is judged by eye and nose.

4. Pan Firing and Rolling - the leaves are heated in small batches on large hot pans to deactivate the enzyme which contributes to oxidation. They are fired at about 140 degrees then rolled by hand to breakdown the cell walls and release tea juices. They are fired again at about 120degrees and rolled again to make beautiful strip leaves that are covered in delicious leaf juices.

5. Drying and Roasting - the leaves are dried in bamboo containers over hot charcoal. They are dried at high temperature (about 80 degrees) to give a deep and thick fragrance. After cooling they are heated again at lower temperatures (50 degrees) until completely dry.

 

The result of all this work is a unbelievably rich, and fragrant tea full of peach, orchid and lychee and a satisfying quench of rock minerality. The finish is gentle but long as the minerals coat your throat and tea vapour rises for hours after drinking.

 

Directions:

For average brewing use about 3g for 300ml of water. Use very hot good quality water (about 95 degrees). Infuse for about 90 seconds and reinfuse a few times. We recommend that you try to brew this tea Gong Fu style. Use a small pot and use 5g of tea per 150ml. Brew for about 10-20 seconds and you can reinfuse about 10-15 times. This is really a tea to savour so wait until you have some space to sit and appreciate it.

 

For details on correct brewing check the Tea Brewing Chart and watch the Video Guide to Brewing Tea.

<![CDATA[Jade Gaba]]> http://chinalifeweb.com/shop/product/tea-jgac/ http://chinalifeweb.com/shop/product/tea-jgac/ Wed, 10 Dec 2014 18:46:56 GMT GABA is a powerful neurotransmitter to enhance relaxation and mental function. Contains 210mg of GABA per 100g.


In order to be called GABA tea, the leaves must contain at least 150mg of GABA per 100g (normal oolong has about 6mg so that is 25 times higher). However, our Gabalong is laboratory tested and contains 210mg of GABA which is 35 times the amount found in normal tea.


GABA stands for gamma-amino butyric acid, an amino acid that is one of the main neurotransmitters in your central nervous system. Neurotransmitters help nerve signals to travel between cells (neurons). The GABA chemical functions to prevent over-excitement of the nervous system by controlling the movement of signals between neurons.


GABA tea has an abundant amount of health benefits. Some would even describe GABA as a ‘super tea’.



ANTI-ANXIETY, DE-STRESS: GABA is a chemical that your body produces to keep the brain calm, control blood pressure and manage stress. High levels of GABA prevent an over-active nervous system by blocking excessive levels of nerve signal transmissions that cause anxiety-related health issues. Not enough GABA in your brain can lead to epilepsy, seizures, convulsions, Huntington’s disease and Parkinsonism.


ANTI-INSOMNIA: GABA's calming effect can aid a deeper sleep and help combat sleep disorders. Drink an hour before bedtime.



ANTI-CANCER: GABA tea can inhibit the growth of cancer cells. In particular GABA has been studied for its ability to reduce airway-derived lung cancer.



LOWERS HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE: GABA is your body's own tranquilliser and is known for its role in lowering blood pressure. Please avoid if you suffer from hypotension.



PREVENTS DIABETES: GABA lowers blood sugar in your body by encouraging the production of insulin and secretion of insulin from the pancreas, preventing the risk of diabetes.


STRONG MENTAL HEALTH: GABA aids in memory retention, improves overall mental alertness and aids the development of learning abilities.

EFFECTIVE TREATMENT FOR NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS: Daily consumption of GABA can be effective for neurological disorders.



STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM: GABA improves the plasma concentration by helping your body to fight diseases and avert many health problems.



ANTI-AGEING: GABA tea can be used as a natural beauty supplement to prevent inflammation of the skin and improve skin elasticity, thus working as an anti-ageing agent.



HANGOVERS: Uses of GABA have included the treatment of alcohol related problems. It is great for relieving hangovers!



GROWTH: Gaba increases the production of human growth hormone (HGH) which is known to:


Boost calcium retention


Enhance muscle mass


Promote lipolysis


Raise protein synthesis in your body


Stimulate the growth of all internal organs (excluding the brain)


Maintain a healthy functioning of the liver


Preserve the pancreatic islets and stimulate the immune system


Increase energy levels


Aid in weight loss


Improve skin conditions


Control the feeling of pain


Directions:

To brew ball-shaped Oolong tea Western style, infuse about 3.5g (heaped teaspoon) of leaf per 300ml of 95c water for about 2 minutes. You can reinfuse up to 5 times by adding 30 seconds for every subsequent infusion.

To brew ball-shaped Oolong tea Gong fu style, infuse about 8g of leaf per 150ml of 95c water for about 20 seconds. You can reinfuse up to 8 times by adding about 5 seconds for every subsequent infusion.

<![CDATA[Grander Blue Water]]> http://chinalifeweb.com/shop/product/grander-blue-water/ http://chinalifeweb.com/shop/product/grander-blue-water/ Fri, 05 Dec 2014 14:43:02 GMT FOR FULL INFORMATION ABOUT GRANDER WATER PLEASE READ OUR BROCHURE.

 

Grander Blue Water is the ultimate in pure Alpine water from the Austrian mountains which has been intensely revitalised by submerging metal rods filled with 'Grander Information Water' for over 6 months. This is not the same as GRANDER INFORMATION WATER which is the special water which revitalises any liquid in its proximity, however this water is so highly revitalised that it will have a milder revitalising effect on liquids nearby.

 

Whilst Grander Blue Water can be drunk by the glass, it is designed to be used as a revitalising cordial. Add a capful to 2 litres of water and it will restructure the water almost immediately for drinking, washing watering plants etc. You can drink it neat as a shot which will have an instant revitalising effect on your body and “kick starts” you for the day.

 

ABOUT REVITALISED WATER

Revitalised water is water whose water cluster structure has been repaired and made coherent. Drinking revitalised water has the following effects on your body:

 

1. It improves hydration through a lowering of the surface tension. This increase water uptake and helps detox. Interestingly, drinking revitalised water tends to trigger the body's thirst reflex and encourages more water consumption. If you have difficulty drinking water because you are never thirsty or do not like the taste of water then revitalised water will help.  The recommended minimum daily intake of water is an equivalent of 2 ltrs a day.

 

2. It improves the efficiency of your blood. You are over 60% water and the blood plasma will become revitalised when drinking revitalised water. This has been shown in live blood microscopy to improve red blood cell separation and white blood cell efficiency.

 

3. It provides the body with a self purifying and anti microbial hydration which has a positive effect on your immune system.

The boards have a spiral copper tube filled with highly charged Grander Information Water encapsulated within the laminated wood. This means that any liquid in any container (glass, plastic, metal) that is placed on the board will begin to be restructured and revitalised. This includes the liquid in fruit or food that is placed on the board. House plants also benefit from being placed on the board.

 

Perfect for revitalising bottles or jugs of filtered water. It only takes about 10 minutes to begin to notice a textural difference in the water but this improves the longer it is on the board. We like to revitalise liquids overnight.

 

Some people wedge a board at the top of their mattress to sleep close to the board. This will have a reviatlising effect on your blood and fluids as you sleep!
