These teas are stimulating to the eyes, as well as the palate

Most often, I think of teas as having pleasurable aromas and tastes. Depending on the tea, though, it can also be visually appealing, too. Perhaps the most elegant examples of teas that are pleasing to the eye are flowering (or blooming) teas.

Click here to see the Travel Photo of the Day Slideshow!

Flowering teas actually include both tea leaves and flowers like globe amaranth, marigold, lily, jasmine, osmanthus, and carnation. The flower(s) are carefully encased inside a sheath of tea leaves in a way that will unfold into "artful shapes when brewed."

You might think that it goes without mention, but if you’re trying this tea, be sure to use a glass pot or else you’ll miss out on a major element of the experience!

Health Benefits of Teasel

Teasel plant consists of several health benefiting vitamins and minerals. Listed below are few of the health benefits of teasel

1. Treats osteoporosis and osteopenia

Teasel is widely used in traditional Chinese Medicine as a liver and kidney toner. Teasel Root is categorized as a Yang tonic with an affinity for assisting with structural repair especially of connective tissue and bone. It increases circulation and aids in building strong tendons and bones. Apart from that teasel root helps damaged bone tissue grow, stimulating new bone growth. It also helps alleviate muscle pain. Recent research shows that Teasel Root helps strengthen and build bone mass, particularly in porous trabecular bone.(1)

2. Helps rid the body of chronic Lyme disease

Lyme disease is normally caused by a bacteria (Borrelia burgdorferi), transmitted to humans by infected black legged ticks. Symptoms vary, but can include fever, fatigue, headaches, and a skin rash. A couple weeks of antibiotics can help clear Lyme disease from the body. Chronic Lyme disease, however, is something many people suffer from. Chronic Lyme disease happens when antibiotics fail to heal the body, and fatigue, headaches and other symptoms linger, often longer than six months. Teasel Root is not an antibiotic, but a weed that is capable of changing the body’s environment, so the body can kill off Lyme bacteria. The body’s muscles and cells are stimulated and it helps dump Lyme bacteria into the bloodstream, and then the body can detox it. (2)

3. Natural diuretic

Teasel Root is considered an excellent diuretic, making it wonderful for clearing the body of excess water weight, as it encourages the flow of urine. This dynamic root also encourages sweating, which is another way to rid the body of toxins (sweating acts as a diuretic). It rids the body of unneeded salt and water, which can also help with tissue swelling (inflammation).

4. Helps treat Candida overgrowth

Although Candida is present in everyone’s bodies, it is a fungus, and when it gets out of control, it can result in various maladies such as yeast infections, depression, chronic fatigue, or infection of our gut flora. Teasel Root works with natural antibiotics, and aids in purging excess Candida into our bloodstream so that it can die-off. Inulin is part of the Teasel Root, and helps probiotic growth in the colon. Probiotics, which are live bacteria and yeasts, are good or helpful bacteria. It’s the stuff that keeps our guts healthy. Pro means for, and bio in this definition means life therefore, probiotics are for life. Taking teasel root if you have candida overgrowth can force candida from tissues, and the exposure allows probiotics to attack and conquer the offending enemies.

Jaundice is a common liver problem. The appearance of light or a dark-yellow coloring of the skin and eyes is known as jaundice. Jaundice is not a disease, but can be related with other problems, such as acute inflammation of the liver, alcoholism, liver infection or cancer, and bile duct inflammation. Elevated bilirubin is an orange-yellow substance made during the normal breakdown of red blood cells. Bilirubin passes through the liver and is eventually excreted out of the body, and causes the yellowing of skin and/or eyes.” The diuretic properties of Teasel Root support the liver to clear the body of toxins.

Plants, Flowers and Trees

Green trees in Yu Garden, a famous garden in Shanghai

Plants are chosen carefully, dependent on their texture, shape, color and fragrance. Some Chinese gardens have a lotus pond with a nearby lotus pavilion. Chinese gardeners choose the different plant elements for their garden largely due to fragrance.

Chinese gardens typically always have fragrant flowers to set the atmosphere. Flowers and trees also contrast with sharp, harsh architectural lines. Sound is another element of Chinese gardens, and when rain falls on the leaves of trees and bushes, it creates a soothing sound.


Flower Symphony White Tea

$ 8.00 USD

The texture, floral notes, and color found in this beautiful flowering tea are inspired by American painter James McNiell Whistler. His works Symphony in White No. 1, Symphony in White No. 2, and Symphony in White No. 3 depict portraits of women dressed in flowing white gowns, and posing in rooms filled with beautifully decorated fabrics and flowers.

Where Whistler worked in light and color, the artisans who create these teas work towards flavor and color. With luxury white tea, hibiscus, and lavender blossoms, the cup is spectacular - watch closely as the flowers open, the hibiscus petals appear to bleed and paint the water. With honey notes, white tea sweetness, hints of citrus, and lilting floral undertones, this flowering tea is truly a masterpiece


Kombucha (kelp tea)

Tea of one kind or another, hot or cold, can be found practically at all restaurants, vending machines, kiosks, convenience stores and supermarkets.

At restaurants, green tea is often served with or at the end of a meal for free. At lower end restaurants, green tea or mugicha tend to be available free for self-service, while konacha is commonly provided at inexpensive sushi restaurants. Kocha (black tea) is usually available alongside coffee at cafes and Western restaurants.

At some temples and gardens, tea (usually ryokucha or matcha) is served to tourists. The tea is typically served in a tranquil tatami room with views onto beautiful scenery, often together with an accompanying Japanese sweet. While the tea is sometimes included in the temple's or garden's admission fee, it more often requires a separate fee of a few hundred yen.

Last but not least, many types of tea are sold in PET bottles and cans at stores and vending machines across Japan. They are available both hot or cold, although hot tea is less widely available during the summer months, especially at vending machines.

Japanese tea and a brief history

Tea was first introduced to Japan from China in the 700s. During the Nara Period (710-794), tea was a luxury product only available in small amounts to priests and noblemen as a medicinal beverage.

Around the beginning of the Kamakura Period (1192-1333), Eisai, the founder of Japanese Zen Buddhism, brought back from China the custom of making tea from powdered leaves. Subsequently, the cultivation of tea spread across Japan, notably at Kozanji Temple in Takao and in Uji.

During the Muromachi Period (1333-1573), tea gained popularity among people of all social classes. People gathered in big tea drinking parties and played a guessing game, whereby participants, after drinking from cups of tea being passed along, guessed the names of tea and where they came from. Collecting and showing off prized tea utensils was also popular among the affluent.

At about the same time, a more refined version of tea parties developed with Zen-inspired simplicity and a greater emphasis on etiquette and spirituality. These gatherings were attended by only a few people in a small room where the host served the guests tea, allowing greater intimacy. It is from these gatherings that the tea ceremony has its origins.
