From young leaves grew on tea trees to ready-to-brew tea leaves, there are several processes involved. Green tea is a tea which is closer to its natural condition. We appreciate it as a raw material which is aesthetic and comes with the pure taste of its young sprouts.
As we are sipping green tea, we will sense its purity – which is something we have been pursuing and anticipating in life.
To enjoy and feel close to green tea, the very first choice is to brew tea with sophisticated utensils. Sip the tea delicately, and let it moisten our body.
Other than drinking tea, some unfancy experiments are feasible as well. Insert an appropriate quantity of fresh Long Jing Green Tea leaves into a bottle of olive oil and let it soak for some time so that the fragrance of the leaves blends into that of olive.
Pour and mix the Long Jing-olive oil with our salad and noodles, and we will surely find the taste unique. Add some Long Jing tea leaves while cooking rice, and we will enjoy green tea rice which is light and delicious.
Green tea leaves are good for beauty treatment at home too. Among others, tea water is good for rinsing face and hair, and soaking feet; tea leaves are good for facial and eye mask. Thanks to their natural ingredients, the leaves are of minimal irritation to our skin.
In conclusion, our lifestyle revolving green tea is beautiful and pleasant.
