当店の人気商品Sweet Rooibosは、寝つきが良くなる!とのお客さまの声しきりです。ぜひイチゴジャムを入れて召し上がってみてください

Our Sweet Rooibos tea is a delicious blend of the finest Rooibos with berry and vanilla flavor.
Rooibos, or Redbush, is grown in South Africa. Naturally caffeine free, it contains high levels of antioxidants, Vitamins C and E and minerals such as iron, potassium and zinc, as well as anti-ageing properties.

Highly recommended to try the tea with Strawberry Jam! It’s so delicious!

Anti –aging - Rooibos has been found to possess certain anti-aging properties that help in strengthening the body's resistance against free radicals in the system

Insomnia - Rooibos has also been found to help with insomnia and disturbed sleeping patterns as it contains no caffeine and has a relaxing effect on the central nervous system.
Migraine – Rooibos can help alleviate migraines

Anti-inflammatory effects- Rooibos may prevent DNA damage and inflammation by its anti-oxidative activity.

As Rooibos tea is free from caffeine, routine intake may be safe and useful in reducing oxidative stress in children.

Happy Sinhalese & Tamil New Year !

Big Fortune Tea

I woke up this morning and realized that we don't have any proper arrangement to prepare traditional Sri Lankan New Year meal at home. I stil wanted to feel festive so instead, opted to celebrate it in Japanese way.
Big Fortune Tea is drunk in Japan on New Year's day ( January 1st in this case) as the first tea of the year, believed to bring you a good luck. Inside the cup are green tea, a hand-tied seaweed and a pickled plum and I also added a salt preserved Sakura, Cherry blossom.

Suba aluth awuruddak wewa!

Iced Tea Variation - Green Paradise Iced Tea

I would love you to try this refreshing fruity Green Iced tea recipe.
It is best to make it with our Green Paradise tea so that aroma is significant, but you could also try it with any Green tea you have.
If you haven't tried Iced Green tea before, you will be surprised to find how better green tea tastes with fruity flavors.

* Recipe for 4 glasses *
1. Pour freshly boiled water into empty cups or jar( not a tea pot you are using). Wait water temperature to drop to around 185 F (85 C)in 2 minutes.
2. Add 2 tea spoons of Green Paradise ( or any green tea) into the tea pot
3. Pour the hot water (400CC) in to the pot and steep it for 5-10 minutes.
4. Add 3 tea spoons of sugar
5. Filled the Pyrex with ice cubes up to 2/3, and set the tea strainer on top of it. Pour the hot tea on to the strainer. Once the last drop is poured, immediately remove all the remaining ice cubes from the tea and keep it in the room temperature.
6. Fill glasses with ice cubes and pour the tea and float orange slices and mint leaves.

A little technique to make Green Tea tastes better ...
Do not use hot boiling water !If you do, it just over cooks delicate green tea leaves and it discolors the liquid.


Sri Lankan New Year
It has been incredibly hot in Colombo these days. As Sinhala New Year( Sri Lankan New Year) is on the 14th, ( Yes, we celebrate TWO New Years a year), a lot of people have already taken holidays to escape from the steamy city to cooler parts of the island or even abroad.

We also close our tea salon from 14th -18th April and will open again on 19th.

We wish you and your loved ones a Happy " Second " New Year!

HELP FOR JAPAN & New Guide Book

Jo & Majima-san from Save the Children

We have installed a donation box in our shop for supporting people affected by Japan's earthquake and tsunami.
All funds received will be sent to the NGO called Save the Children in Japan.
Save the Children has worked in Japan to launch longer-term recovery for children affected by Japan's March 11 earthquake and tsunami. They have opened the first child-friendly space in Japan, protective environments where children can gather to play and share their experiences under the supervision of trained, caring adults.
We heartily appreciate your kind offer of support.

Tea cups from Singapore

I am very sorry that I couldn't blog for a long time.

Firstly, my deepest condolences for the Japanese people affected by this quake and the tsunami.

I was also in Japan for International Food and Beverage Exhibition called FOODEX Japan to participate as a promoter for AFJones, tea company. I left Japan to Singapore on 10th, just one day before the earthquake hit.

Chinese Tea Cups
While I was strolling in China town in Singapore, I found these tiny glass tea cups and fell in love with them.
They are so small that each cups can barely contain 10ml, even smaller than normal Chinese tea cups which can hold no more than 30ml.
In Chinese Tea style, each cup has to be just large enough to hold about two small swallows of tea.

The cup is two-plied and heat resistance that can be held comfortably for drinking.
It is a special pleasure for tea drinkers to think and choose the best suitable tea for the cups when you first use the cups. I decided to enjoy Green Rose this time.
中国の茶器は小さくて本当に可愛い! いつも新しい茶器を買う時やおろす時に「どんなお茶が合うかしら...」とあれこれ悩むのも楽しいもの。考えた挙句、今回はグリーンローズにしましたが、大正解でした。
