A Touch of Ceylon Tea
Iris Weichler. Belgium
TMC Belgium 2019 Tea Preparation Winner
You can enjoy tea in different circumstances: more informal, outside in nature. The actions during making tea are inspired by the environment and are spontaneously. You can bring the taste of a tea, which comes from the other side of the world (in this case a tea from Sri Lanka) in to your own environment. The whole experience and finally the taste of the tea will reflect in that particular moment. You have also the more formal way of brewing tea: with a plan, a pre-selected arrangement. The intention is to listen to the tea and his origin. Just to open the senses for what the tea will tell you.

I am an active ecotourism and I enjoy it a lot. I spend weekend on mountaineering and nature. Almost 60% of people drank and enjoyed this kind of Ceylon tea in daily life. West Azerbaijan people (the region I live) are interested in Ceylon broken tea. Easily we can say that West Azerbaijan people are the most interested people in Ceylon broken tea in Iran.

I tried to mix éclair with praline which is very original and cold brew Ceylon tea (we are not used to drinking it this way). Roasted notes of praline so nice with woody and flowery notes of Ceylon tea. Together it is perfect! With Ceylon tea notes of praline become stronger. This is a very good pairing.

…Pour some golden maple syrup (I recommand the golden one that is more subtle and matches perfectly with the Ceylon tea) to your taste but at least one teaspoon. Drop a strawberry in the your bowl (or glass, or chawan) or hang one on the edge. You can decorate with fir or spruce. It fits better if it’s a glass. Enjoy!
