From Red Blossom Tea Company

From Zhejiang Province, China, Organic Celadon Pearl is a late Spring harvested green tea that is tightly rolled in the style of a traditional Gunpowder. The long roasting process gives this tea a simple and crisp flavor with a toasted nutty finish. Because of the more mature leaves, it is more robust than most Spring harvested green . The result is a tea that is nutty and smoky with notes reminiscent of a premium Genmaicha .

Unlike the subtle floral notes and smooth mouth feel of earlier harvest green teas, Organic Celadon Pearl makes a good everyday green tea. Ideal for making as iced tea as well.

Went a different direction with this tea today. I wanted to try making my own mint tea, which is just great on those cold winter evenings, or when you’re not feeling so well. So, just to try it out, I went to the local grocery store, bought a few sprigs of mint leaves, hung them in a doorway at home for 1.5 weeks to dry, and here we go:

First off, I choose this green tea for this little experiment because it’s a simple, solid, amazingly straight up green tea. I used just under 3 tablespoons of tea leaves in my 32 ounce Bodum Assam tea pot, with water just starting to boil. I added 3 dried mint leaves to the steep.

The color is the same, still that nearly see through yellowish orange strawish color. Aroma and taste are exactly what I expected. Mint tea! Maybe a little on the strong side, and not quite the mint flavor I want, but for going to the store and buying whatever mint they had for a first try, I’m liking it, and loving it’s potential.

It’s ALREADY better than any mint tea that I have bought in a store.

In the future, I think I would like to get some more gunpowder green tea for a little more strength against the mint flavor, and I will be going to a farmers market or one of the local natural food stores to find more specific type of mint.

Also, I might try using either slightly less mint leaves, or adding them halfway through the steeping process.

Anyone out there have experience making their own mint tea?
