Winter, when people often gather at home during Christmas and New Year holidays. Especially in places where many women gather, only the sweets that everyone brought with them tend to line up.
If you want to prepare some nice tea, we recommend "Craft Tea".
Craft tea is a "tea art" that is a combination of tea leaves and flowers. It was devised very recently among the historic Chinese teas, and it is said that it is rapidly increasing in popularity in Europe.
Introducing this time is the craft tea "Temari" from the tea specialty store "LUPICIA". The price is 380 yen (tax included) for one piece. The package was likely to be given to people as it was, and the clerk said, "It sells well as a gift." By the way, at the store I went to, I was pushed by Christmas products (?) And didn't appear in the store, but if you ask the clerk, you can get it.
This time, we purchased 3 types of "Airaika", "Kimaika", and "Yuyuka" from the 6 types of lineup. First of all, I will open "Airaika".
To brew, just put it in a heat-resistant glass and pour boiling water (about 400 ml).
The tea leaves will open in a few minutes, so let's enjoy the gradual blooming of the flowers.
When it is fully opened, it will gently sink to the bottom, so please add hot water. All the bases are jasmine tea, and the fragrant aroma and rich taste spread.
Then "Kimaika". The small red flowers are like butterflies.
The last is "Yu Yuka". The chrysanthemum flowers are lined with thousand-day red and jasmine flowers, which is very gorgeous.
Looking at the flowers through the lightly colored tea makes me feel nostalgic as if I were watching an old movie. If you can't stand to throw it away after drinking it, you can decorate it as a table flower.
I used a glass and a decanter, but I recommend using a glass pot or pitcher because you can drink plenty of one. Please try it when you want to spend an extremely elegant time!
