‘Drinking a cup of good tea the right way, is a blessing.’
If you are still unfamiliar with tea-drinking, why not take it as a new, exciting experience and kick-start a HEALTH-tea life this new year? Perhaps, tea will develop as your lifetime enthusiasm.
Here is a Tea Calendar to guide your tea-drinking journey this 2021. We have different kinds of tea recommendations each month for you to taste the aroma, flavour, and feel the pleasure behind tasting different teas.
The Tea Calendar of 2021
It is the first month of the year! Drink a cup of ripe puer tea to warm yourself up after the festive month – December and be prepared for a new sprint in the new year.
The month where Chinese celebrates Chinese New Year. While having a feast during food gatherings with friends and family, how about a cup of aromatic Tie Guan Yin to pair with the hearty dishes.
As we wave goodbyes to the joyous festive month, let’s drink white tea to dissipate our internal heat.
It’s Spring in April, indicating that the Long Jing tea buds on Hang Zhou’s tea mountains flushes, thereby best to taste Long Jing tea this period.
The flowers bloom in May. A cup of floral-scented Chao Zhou Oolong Tea is best to welcome the coming Summer.
Dragon Boat Festival, also known as ‘Poet Festival’ comes around in June. Jasmine Roundies that are processed from green tea and scented flowers can lessen the greasiness of dumplings and other snacks, which also incorporates with the poetic aura this month.
This July, try out one of the Taiwan teas – Cui Yu Oolong for a refreshingly sweet sensation. Together we welcome the next half of 2021 with this addictive flower fragrance.
When it comes to rock tea, Wuyi’s cliff-grown tea is a great choice. Let’s continue our wonderful tea journey with Lao Cong Shui Xian that is rich and mellow in flavour.
Mooncake Festival is here! Pick a round-shaped green tea puer cake that symbolizes a full moon to commemorate the festival. The tea also aids in promoting better digestion after having too many mooncakes.
Have a taste of Autumn tea – Huang Jin Gui. Slowly sip the golden tea and smell the lingering fragrance of Osmanthus to cheer yourself up after having a long day.
We are reaching the end of the year! The tea of November is the well-known Wuyi Rou Gui. The sharp fragrance of the tea boosts up our energy for us to get prepared for the new year.
This is a cheery month full of festivals. Tasting the natural sweetness of black tea puts a perfect end to the year.
With this tea calendar, can our lives get any better?
There is always time for tea, as tea makes everything better.
