I have recently read an article about a tea house, a quiet and unique tea house that does not even have a signage, neatly tucked away in a leafy street somewhere among the thousands of Starbucks cafes sprouting up around it. The small tea house under the three aged purple vines is however where the local artists, writers and philosophers gather - their spiritual oasis.
With a sip of GOOD tea, eyes shut and soul cleaned;
Have a dialogue with the forest where the tea grew, and the workers who harvested the tea;
Time seems to be remote, same as the buzzy world around;
Leave the ups and downs of life aside and simply enjoy the world of a pot of tea.
The founder and owner of Valley Green Tea
I grew up in the Fu-Jian Province – the tea country of China. Tea drinking has been part of our daily life for as long as I can remember.
While I was working as a public health researcher a few years ago, I read many research reports conducted over the last 30 years about the health benefits of green tea in fighting certain life style related challenges such as cancer, obesity, cardio-vascular and inflammatory diseases etc.
From my research, I realised there is a significant gap between what people consume (i.e. commercial tea bags) for assumed health benefits and the actual benefits that have been enjoyed by the Chinese for a long history from the premium loose leaf teas.
As well as being potentially beneficial to health, the premium loose teas (green tea being the biggest group) are most enjoyable beverages with a fascinating history, colourful culture and holistically dynamic in every aspect.
It is my passion to share, not only the products, but also the whole culture dynamics around the premium teas with the tea enthusiasts, here in Australia and around the world.
Valley Green Tea currently supplis a diverse range of premium loose teas to the tea drinking community that suit all tastes and all cultures and to pass on a deep understanding of the history and benefits of this wonder beverage.Website: https://www.valleygreentea.com.au
