Goddess of Tiny Blossoms

My deep appreciation for tea began when I was a child growing up in China. There tea has been an integral part of everyday life for centuries. My parents would drink tea throughout the day, taking pause to savor each cup. My father’s favorite tea has always been classic dragon well green tea, while my mother prefers jasmine green. Jasmine also holds a special place in my heart. I love its aroma and the story of how the flower’s blossoms are infused with green or white tea leaves many times to receive the most potent flavor yet without any other additives. Jasmine’s aroma opens one’s senses

Matcha Latte & How to Make Matcha Tea

The Allure of the Matcha Latte & How to Make a Perfect Cup of Matcha

Matcha is having a good year. If you are unfamiliar with Matcha, it’s a powdered green tea made famous by Japanese Zen monks. It has been used for centuries to create a sense of calm and focused alertness in both meditation and mindful living. We’ve been seeing all kinds of recipes lately using Matcha in sweets, hot drinks and cocktails. Matcha is also showing up more and more in coffee shops and cafés. Even Starbucks now features a Teavana Green Tea Latte made with Matcha (and a whopping 40 grams of sugar per 12 oz cup). Though I’m familiar with traditionally brewed Matcha, which creates a naturally creamy, frothy, sweet, umami and tremendously satisfying cup of opaque green tea, I was inspired by the Americanized recipes using Matcha. I set out to make an Arogya-style Matcha Latte, made with homemade almond milk and our ceremonial grade Matcha.

Oolong Bomb – a Powerful Way to Brew Oolong Tea

At Arogya we have been drinking what we call the “Oolong bomb”. It is inspired by gong-fu style preparation and creates a powerful brew, ideal for enhancing focus and productivity. In China, Oolong tea is well-known for its concentration-enhancing effects, which is why it is a favorite tea of students and executives alike. A normal cup of Oolong contains one teaspoon of tealeaves for an 8 oz. cup. The Oolong Bomb contains twice the amount of tea leaves, with half the water. The Oolong tea leaves are rinsed with hot water, and then brewed at a slightly lower temperature, around 185˚ F for 4 minutes. What ensues is a potent, espresso-like shot of concentrated and robust Oolong tea. This is a great way to enjoy the taste, as well as the mental and physical benefits Oolong tea provides. Try brewing an Oolong Bomb before studying, meditating, or having a meeting.

Oolong 101

For many, green tea is the gateway to cultivating a love for fine teas. Black teas remain classic and time-honored, as they are the teas most ingrained in our culture, an influence of the British. Oolong is a class of teas that finds itself in between Green and Black teas, in terms of flavor, caffeine content, color, and oxidation level. For this reason, the more accessible Greens and Blacks can sometimes obscure Oolong tea in America. However, it is well worth the effort to open our minds and taste buds to the allure of Oolong, which is an extraordinary and sophisticated category of tea that ranges in flavor from sweet and floral to dark and nutty.
