Matcha Tea and Exercise

Many supplements available in shops contain artificial sweeteners and flavouring agents, so if you want to go all natural, try Matcha tea to energise your body before the workout and recover from the exercise quicker.

Tea Shops are sprouting like mushrooms these days in the UK. Tea is cool and trendy. It can be a little bit overwhelming at times – shop after shop pops out with hundreds of glass jars showing off colourful leaves. How would you know if one is any good? Here are a few things to look out for:

Light Roast Oolong

Light Roast Oolongs represent the optimum combination of easy handling, straight forward brewing, stunning flavours and aromas and a perfect balance of the soothing and comforting effect and the uplifting kick you get from tea drinking. Roasting also neutralises some of the stimulants making these teas gently energising but easy on your stomach.

Wuyi Oolong Infused Cinnamon Buns

The warm and toasty cinnamon flavour of Wuyi Oolong teas go wondefully with dessert. Here I have designed a recipe which not only can be served with a Wuyi Oolong tea, but where tea can also be used as part of ingredients.

Winter time is Wuyi time

Winter time is Wuyi time. This group of oolong teas has a wonderful warming quality, making them suitable for cold and windy weather and tea drinkers with weakened health.

We have just added more teas to our selection of Wuyi Oolongs - a stunning Shui Xian Supreme (less roasted than most other Wuyi Oolongs) and a younger generation of Da Hong Pao.

What do we do at the Leaf Bar?

Our business is not just about selling our products, but very much about helping the fellow tea drinker learn more about tea and access the best available leaves at the best possible prices. We buy directly from the tea farmer whenever possible, as this allows us to keep the prices at an affordable level as well as keep an eye on the growing and processing of the teas. And since we don’t have an expensive retail venue to maintain, our product margins are very reasonable. What we really want to achieve in our youthful optimism is improvement of the average quality of tea that the average European consumer is drinking. Mission possible, we think.
