Many customers come to Earthwise Beauty (EWB) in search of healing for skin issues that have plagued them for years. EWB offers many topical products to address acne, eczema, rosacea, and other skin concerns, but based on their experience with herbs and their use in Western and Chinese traditions, they introduced teas to help heal and beautify the skin from within.

EWB is an advocate for replacing coffee with a healthy alternative: caffeinated tea. So they began their search for a higher-caffeine, traditionally handcrafted black tea. Some of the world's top black teas come from the Yunnan province in China.

Chinese teas can be made from tea trees that are cultivated or wild, and each approach has its advantages and a different impact on the flavor. EWB was very intrigued when their Chinese tea purveyor presented a Yunnan black tea to them that is made solely from tea leaves collected from ancient wild trees all growing on one mountain, the Jingmai. The trees are said to be at least 500 years old.

This single-origin approach produces a tea that is truly unique, based on the microclimate on that mountain and on the traditional processing technique of the region. It is a whole leaf tea made from large, mature leaves. The Jingmai tea's flavor is exceptionally rich and malty. It is wonderful when brewed strong and served with milk and honey, or can be brewed weaker and still make for a delicious beverage.


PROPERTIES

Tea is considered the most important herb in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and the only one that should be consumed daily. It is believed to have a balancing effect on the body and mind.

Whereas coffee dehydrates the body and stimulates the adrenal fight-or-flight response, therefore depleting the adrenals and accelerating aging, this tea calms the mind and is believed to actually increase longevity. Black tea and other fermented teas are recommended by Chinese herbalists to detoxify the skin from within, and to clear problems such as rashes and eczema.

 

HOW TO USE

1. Measure out ½ to 2 tablespoons of tea leaves (4 to 5 grams per 12 fl. oz/354 ml of water) and place inside a teapot or tea mug.

2. Brew using filtered, freshly boiled water (the ideal brewing temperature for this tea is 195 degrees F/90 degrees C). Steep, covered, for 1 to 3 minutes only (experiment), then strain.

3. Add a sweetener of choice and milk if desired.

4. The same tea leaves may be brewed up to five times, for the flavor and antioxidants (subsequent brews contain much less caffeine than the first brew). Add one extra minute to the second brew, and one more extra minute to the third brew, etc. To learn a brewing method that results in a tea with very little caffeine, look up the Gong Fu Cha method.

Great to know...

If pregnant or nursing, consult your health practitioner regarding consuming caffeinated beverages.
