Tea: A Delicious Alternative for Late Evenings

10 February 2018

unnamed copia

If the stimulant, diuretic and antibacterial properties of tea have long been recognized by Chinese medicine, it is only recently that its benefits have been confirmed by modern science. However, there is no longer any doubt that its virtues contribute to our longevity by stimulating the functions of the heart, strengthening the immune system and preventing cell mutations.

Tea, in all its forms, is a healthy, delicious, and original alternatives, even for late evenings. Here are some suggestions from the Camellia Sinensis Tea House:

Tisanes

Discover a world of new fragrances and of different plants such as verbena, raspberry, nettle, wintergreen, hops, lavender, yarrow, and lemon balm as marvellous accompaniments to your late evenings.

White Teas

Clover honey, edible flowers, fresh walnuts, freshly cut grass, are aromas evoked in the sweet and velvety nuances of white teas. With a relatively low caffeine and tannin content, their refreshing infusion is perfect at any time of the day. A tea to enjoy peacefully, without food, to enjoy its finer subtleties and its soothing effect.

Rooibos

Rooibos (Aspalathus linearis) from the legume family took its name from the Afrikaans word ‘rooibosch’, meaning red-bush, from the deep red it turns toward the end of its life. Delicious with or without milk!

Iced Teas

Great to satisfy both your thirst and that of your guests! Whether you use a mixture already prepared or benefit from emptying your collection of bags of tea and adding fruits and spices, the procedure is simple. Just add cold water to your preparation at a dosage you would use for a hot infused tea, and allow it to infuse for 6 am to 12 hours in the refrigerator, then filter before tasting!

Mocktails

Camellia Sinensis will participate in Fondation Jean Lapointe’s 28 Days Sober Challenge and will donate $ 1 for every 50g of Shui Xian Lao Cong sold during the month of February.
