National Tea Day is observed in the United Kingdom every year on 21 April to celebrate the drinking of tea.
Since the 18th century, the United Kingdom has been one of the world’s largest tea consumers. Originally an upper-class drink in Europe, tea gradually spread through all classes, eventually becoming a common drink.
Let`s celebrate together at The Petri Dish!
We are incredibly proud of our Tea selection.
We offer over 50 different type meticulously crafted teas and herb infusions. All of them organic, ethical sourced, handpicked and hand rolled loose leaf tea and almost all of them have an original legend, story in store for You how it became unique.
We can not underline enough how important are all mentioned facts:
Organic – chemical free
Loose leaf – without teabag these are plastic and glue free teas AND you receive real tea leaves, not dust in bag
Ethical sourced – the tea gardens receive the right price, Henrietta Lowell who sources these teas all around the world, she visits every farm in every alternate year (real relationship)
Handpicked, hand rolled, hand crafted (in small batches) – if we appreciate the real value of the expertise the thousands year knowledge can stay alive.
Did You know all of the teas comes from the Camellia Sinensis bush, which, left alone and unplucked, would grow into a sprawling, leggy tree.
determines the type of tea it will become.
From the same leaf You could make a white, green, blue, black or pu`er tea.
Black tea is fully oxidized to bring out rich, tannic depth.
Green tea is only lightly processed to reveal more subtle, vegetal flavours.
Oolong tea called blue tea in China. It lies artfully between black and green tea.
White tea is the beginning, the untouched leaf, just dried and so retaining the softest notes of the fresh leaf, clean and grassy. Also White tea contains the highest level of antioxidant because this is the less processed among all of them.
Pu`er tea is fermented.
All of them contains caffeine naturally.
In the United Kingdom the most popular teas are the English Breakfast and the Earl Grey tea.
