Big in China……

Well, a friend of Kyle’s sent him a video about the Chinese tea industry. Guess who is in this video?

You are correct. It has Kyle, Ellainy,  Louise, Gabe, and me around the 58-second mark. A few of us from the USA tea delegation who went to China in March of 2019. I really wish I could understand Mandarin because I would like to know what the video is about besides tea. It seems like a promo for the Chinese tea industry. This is the translation of the video’s name: [Everyone says tea] Vice President of China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Food, Animals, and Animals–Yu Lu suggests with the video that it is promoting tea industry and business exchange between countries in China.

The funny thing is I was thinking of writing about something besides my trip to China, especially since the last 3 -4 months that is all I did then Kyle sent this video a couple of days ago.  I did really enjoy myself on the trip and this might be why that one day was four posts. It was almost like I was extending the trip. Yep, this is not logical just how I feel about the trip.

Below are random pictures that I do not believe I shown in this blog yet.  I figured might as well since I am still talking about my trip to China.

 

Study Shows Oolong’s Potential in Fighting Breast Cancer

Oh, my favorite tea can help me and many others. This is exciting news for people who have a history of breast cancer in their family and women in general because of 250,000 new diagnoses per year in just the United States. Oolong has been known to be very complex tea that is semi-oxidized (they are between green teas and black teas).  The complexity might be the reason it helps breast cancer. They tend to be one of the more expensive teas, but are also known as multiple steeping teas. The article was really good and like how they say that even though oolongs are oxidized 2- 80% (though I know of red oolongs tend to be oxidized more) most Chinese and Taiwanese oolongs are oxidized 15-50% shows the preference in greener oolongs.

I have stated before and will state again there is not one tea that is better to drink for health, it depends on the health issue and also what tea you will actually drink. If you are only drinking for health than it depends on your ailment or prevention for drinking tea. You can buy high-quality loose leaf oolong teas form me here.

I enjoy getting my updates from the World Tea News and have subscribed to them for about 15 years.

Friday the 12th is National Hot Tea Day

January is Hot Tea Month and tomorrow is National Hot Tea Day so celebrate with a cup of hot tea.  Not sure why I am having a writer’s block, but I have been lately.  Hopefully, it will be cured soon. Been sneezing a lot lately.

Wuyi Oolong from the Wuyi mountains in China.  It is said that oolong tea was first produced near the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian province. Most people think of Taiwan when they think of oolongs, but China is where it started and is still produced.
