Which water do you use best?

Water is a very important part of brewing tea and herbal infusions!

The best water is soft, low in minerals with a neutral PH value (= 7PH neutral) and a low redox number. Use water with a residual value below 50mg/l and a high redox potential.

Water with a lot of residues are waters that contain a lot of antioxidants disappeared.

Some brands with good teas and herbal infusions are: Montcalm; Mont Roucous ; Glaciar and Spa.

How do you store loose tea?

Loose tea is best stored at room temperature, dry and in a dark closed tea tin. Je can always put a desiccant such as a silica gel pad in the tea tin so that it absorbs any moisture. in the tea tin. 

This way loose tea can keep for a very long time. Also, nothing happens to the smell, color or taste for a very long time. Because tea is an unrefrigerated product,  the shelf life is extra long.

So keep the tea in the cupboard or in another dark place, but best not in the kitchen because a lot of odors and evaporation takes place in a kitchen.

Formosa Oolong is a semi-oxidized oolong tea from Taiwan and has a slightly spicy taste with a mild flowery aroma. A delicious tea with moderate caffeine to enjoy all day long.

After picking, the tea leaves are oxidized to about 50% and then naturally dried in the sun. During this drying process, one turns the tea regularly in the bamboo baskets. As a result, the Oolong tea develops a mild scent and a large, wildly curled leaf. Then the sheet is rolled and dried again in the oven. The still green leaf with oxidized leaf margin is clearly visible in this tea.
