A PREMIUM and High Quality tea, how do you know?

The clues to recognize a PREMIUM quality tea. First of all the price is not necessarily a safe bet, it is not the guarantee of a good quality tea. Unfortunately, many consumers buy tea blindly. And suddenly mainly for lack of knowledge the choice goes towards poor quality teas. Here are some clues to help you make the right choice: It all starts with the quality of the tea leaves, which must be: - whole and not crushed or broken. - diffuses an exceptional smell. - the price nevertheless remains a criterion, a PREMIUM tea has taste. To keep the quality and its flavor it is picked up by hand, far from mechanical processes. - storage with undeniable effect. - Beware of marketing, excessive marketing will have a major effect on the choice of tea quality. Marketing is expensive. How to choose the right tea 2 mandatory criteria: - packaging: Tea should be kept in an airtight bag and ideally stored in a cool, dry place. - the smell : PREMIUM quality teas diffuse an exceptional fragrance. To choose your tea well, do not be seduced by the marketing, but by the criteria set out above. What to choose ? A loose leaf tea or a tea bag ready to infuse? Keep the following precisely in mind: Often we are swayed by the easy and impatient world of today not helping us to make the right choices. It's true that a ready-to-brew tea bag will be quick and easier to throw away. But nevertheless moving towards this choice is the same as buying a ready-made dish. Yes it will go faster but the quality will not be there. FOR WHAT? 1- Most teas in ready-to-infuse bags are often of much lower quality, since the tea leaves have been reduced to dust. 2- The infuser bags are much too small to accommodate whole tea leaves. The bags being too narrow do not allow the tea leaf to expand normally which prevents a good infusion. To sum up : Loose leaf tea remains the best solution for enjoying high quality tea. Luxury and quality in your cups. The MATSUE TEA house made this choice of a PREMIUM quality tea by not derogating from any of the steps listed above.
L’histoire du thé

The history of tea

The history of tea Did you know ? Tea is an ancient drink that has been consumed for centuries all over the world. Its history dates back to ancient China, where it was used for its medicinal properties before becoming a popular drink. According to legend, Chinese Emperor Shen Nong discovered tea by chance in 2737 BC. While boiling water, a tea leaf fell into his pot , producing a delicious infusion. Since then, tea has become a popular drink in China , and has subsequently been exported to other countries in Asia and around the world. At MATSUE TEA , we are proud to perpetuate this thousand-year-old tradition by offering a selection of organic and high quality teas . We work to offer you the best teas , while respecting the traditions that have made this drink so popular. When did tea arrive in Europe? During the Renaissance , it will first pass through the United Provinces and then gradually through the United Kingdom. The rather very high taxes will encourage smuggling until the Commutation Act of 1784. And it is this period that will mark the end of illegal imports of tea. The tea market in America flourished until what was called the Boston tea party. Then opposition to English royalty would bring it to an end, as tea would emerge in Russia and grow into a tradition. And so it was in the 19th century that tea began to be appreciated, then to be cultivated elsewhere than in China. And tea will see significant growth in India thanks to its promotion by the East India Company . Its quality of tea production is also known as Assam tea and Darjeeling tea. Remember that at that time the working conditions were not optimal and therefore in 1865, a crisis will break out and will stop 4 years later. And it is at this time that plantation owners will begin to understand the importance of providing better working conditions. And it was at this same time that tea emerged. First in India then in different African countries. First in Kenya, Malawi and then Morocco.
