January - cold days, hot steaming cups of tea....what could be better.
ABC Communications - Press Release 24th May 2011

PRESS RELEASE 

24 May 2011

BLOSSOMING NEW BEVERAGE FROM THE TEA EXPERIENCE

- FLOWERING TEA BLOOM -

 

Speciality online tea business, The Tea Experience, has launched a blossoming new beverage for British tea lovers looking for something a little bit different from their cuppa or who want to wow guests at afternoon tea! A new artisan tea, the Flowering Tea Bloom, is handmade to order for the company by an award-winning producer in China and offers top quality blooms for both great tasting tea and a stunning floral finale too.

 

Flowering Tea Blooms are skilfully made with silver needle green tea, a tea variant with leaves that are long and slender rather than the usual Camilla Sinesis leaves. This tea also has a very fine coating of silver hairs which give the tea blooms a distinctive greyish appearance before it is infused. The tea leaves are sorted by size and then made into miniature hand sewn bouquets with the dried flowers at the centre.

 

The artisan skill can take up to 10 minutes to make one bloom. With a light and delicate taste, the tea offers a whispered hint of the flowers. The Chinese believe that the flowers may also have health benefits, in the same way we drink flower teas in the UK, so combining this with known benefits of green tea this is a refreshing and healthy drink.

 

The Tea Experience www.teaexperience.co.uk was set up by former Royal Mail human resources manager, Ann Davis, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, who lifted the lid on a new career by turning a hobby into a growing online speciality tea business. Originally selling traditional China teapots, after being inspired by a gift from her husband, Paul, the business is expanding and now offers a complete tea drinking experience from imported loose tea to tea ware and gifts.

 

Recovering from breast cancer a few years ago, Ann was looking for a new direction which would give her the quality of work and lifestyle balance she wanted and with support from Paul, she established The Tea Experience. What’s surprising about Ann’s new venture is that she has transformed herself from being a non tea drinker to a tea guru, having trained with international tea masters in London. 

 

 

Importing loose tea from the Far East, Germany and the UK from specialist tea importers and wholesalers, The Tea Experience ensures consistency of taste and quality for its customers. The husband and wife team have been lucky enough to travel and work in the Far East, mainly in China, over a number a years. Each trip provided the opportunity to try a variety of teas which often made them question the quality of what they were drinking at home.

The actual turning point was the gift of a Yixing 'purple sand' China teapot. After learning more about them and frequently being asked by friends where they could buy one, the enterprising couple decided to sell the teapots themselves. It was only natural that a small range of teas was added.

Commenting on her growing tea business, Ann Davis said: “After appreciating the quality of some loose teas versus teabags on our travels, it has become our passion and goal to encourage others to try loose tea. We want our customers to enjoy a whole tea experience from trying the very best quality loose teas in the most beautiful traditional teapots. We are still very small, but I can’ believe that my hobby of selling teapots is now growing into a viable website retailing business. It’s very exciting times for us,”
