講講我愛喝的大吉嶺紅茶

(2019-12-20 09:57:19) 下一個

我每天吃早餐時愛喝紅茶加一點點牛奶,喜歡用大mug喝,這樣能大口大口喝個痛快。

 

中國有很多好的紅茶,但是我不在中國,沒有辦法保證貨源,所以如今我就在亞馬遜上買印度大吉嶺紅茶。一定要買有這個logo的。

 

不同時間摘下來的大吉嶺茶葉味道不同

 

1.  First flush is harvested in mid-March following spring rains, and has a gentle, very light colour, aroma, and mild astringency.

 

2.  In between is harvested between the two "flush" periods.

 

3.  Second flush is harvested in June and produces an amber, full-bodied, muscatel-flavored cup. 這自己隻買這種茶葉。

 

4.  Monsoon or rains tea is harvested in the monsoon (or rainy season) between second flush and autumnal, is less withered, consequently more oxidized, and usually sold at lower prices. It is rarely exported, and often used in masala chai.

 

5.  Autumnal flush is harvested in the autumn after the rainy season, and has somewhat less delicate flavour and less spicy tones, but fuller body and darker colour. 這種適合做茶葉蛋或者做珍珠奶茶

 

When Darjeeling teas are sold, they are graded by size and quality. The grades fall into four basic groups: whole leaf, broken leaf, fannings, and dust. 每個group又有不同的grade。我喜歡Whole leaf 茶葉,這裏就隻寫 Whole leaf grade:

 

 

1.  SFTGFOP: Super Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe indicates it contains many tips and is long and wiry in appearance. The liquors are lighter in colour. 對我來說顏色太淡。

 

2.  FTGFOP1: Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. 我的最愛,最香。The tea has a lot of fine, light coloured tips. Tips are of lighter shades since they do not contain as much cell sap that turns dark during fermentation. FOP1 allows conclusions about the care with which the tea was plucked – just two leaves and a bud. The coarser  leaves remain on the tea bush. Only teas from Darjeeling  that meet premium standards will bear the number 1.

 

3.  TGFOP: Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. 顏色深一點,還是不夠香。

 

As a general rule you may keep in mind the longer the string of letters, the better the tea. FTGFOP1 will ensure a superior quality tea that has been carefully and diligently manufactured.

 

這是我喜歡的牌子,亞馬孫買的。買的時候看看能不能買到當年產的茶葉。
