The Tea Making Process: A Journey from Harvest to Cup with Genuine Tea

Tea is not just a drink; it's an experience. From the moment you smell the aroma of fresh tea leaves to the time you enjoy a steaming cup, tea awakens your senses and calms your soul. If you're a tea enthusiast, then you know the importance of sourcing quality tea for the perfect cup. That's why we're introducing Genuine Tea's Loose Leaf Collection, ethically sourced from farms to bring you rich and authentic tea flavours. In this blog, we'll take you through the journey tea takes, from harvest to cup.

 

 

Harvesting Tea Leaves

Tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant. The plant grows in various colours and produces unique flavours. To make tea, the leaves must be harvested at the right time. It usually occurs once a year, and it's a crucial process that requires skilled labourers who carefully handpick the leaves. Genuine Tea sources from trusted farms that avoid the use of pesticides and harvest their tea leaves sustainably.

 

Processing Tea Leaves

After harvesting the leaves, the processing begins. The leaves undergo various methods depending on the type of tea one wants to produce. Some teas get fermented, while others don't. Tea leaves can go through three processing methods: Withering, Rolling, and Drying. After withering the leaves for a time, the tea leaves are then placed in a rolling machine, where they are twisted and shaped before oxidation. Once the tea has reached the desired oxidation level, it is then dried.

 

Blending Tea Leaves

Blending is an art; it takes a skilled tea master to create signature tea blends that consumers love. From taste, aroma, and texture to the shape and colour of the tea leaves, the way a tea is blended can significantly affect its flavour profile. But at Genuine Tea, we promise to deliver high-quality premium loose-leaf tea that's always fresh, vibrant, and bursting with flavours.

 

Brewing Tea

After taking you through the journey of how tea is made, let's end where it all started, brewing a delightful cup. Brewing is crucial since it brings the tea to life, revealing the individual qualities of the tea. Tea needs to be brewed in water that is at the right temperature and for the right time. With Genuine Tea's loose-leaf collection, each tea sachet gives you the best tea-making experience, offering rich and bold flavours that our customers love.

 

Tea is like a journey, and every step counts. From the cultivation and harvesting of tea leaves to the brewing process, each step must be done right. At Genuine Tea, we understand the importance of quality tea and ethical sourcing. We take pride in every step of the tea-making process, ensuring our customers receive premium loose-leaf tea. Our collection offers a range of flavours from exceptional blends to single-origin teas that will suit the most discerning of tastes. Thank you for joining us on this journey, and we hope you'll try out our loose-leaf collection and embrace the rich flavour of Genuine Tea.
