Soil: The Foundation of a Tea Plantation

The Importance of Soil Soil is an incredibly complex, and often overlooked component of an eco or agricultural system. Containing air, water, organic matter, and mineral matter, soil covers the top several meters of the earth’s surface above the bedrock. Soil is the basis for all eco-systems as it provides the necessary nutrients and structure to allow vascular plants, such as tea plants, to grow. Essentially every component needed to make a plant grow, except...

Antioxidants in green tea - helpful or not?

Green tea, thanks to its relatively high amount of antioxidants (which, depending from origin and processing, has a wide span) is highly prized as protection against numerous diseases. But is it true? Is green tea kind of a wonder-remedy? Sceptical as I am, especially when I see marketers pick up scientific research-results, I sat down and went through a whole bunch of those (not easy to read and understand!) researches/studies. I was not surprised to...

Ottawa: our tea now at Cedars & Co. Food Market

Is Darjeeling tea from Darjeeling?

Sounds odd? Darjeeling tea is from Darjeeling! From where else? Since 2011 Darjeeling tea is registered in the European Union as PGI (Protected Geographical Indication). This means: a tea that´s labelled as Darjeeling tea has to be from a clearly defined highland area of the District of Darjeeling in the State of West Bengal, India, where all this fantastic tea is growing. This has been over a long period of time in many cases unforunately...
