What is Lotus Green Tea?

Lotus green tea is one of traditional tea in Asian countries. Lotus plants grow in ponds in Asia anchored in the mud… rising to the top bringing forth beautiful white, pink, and blue flowers. Lotus green tea also have a lot of benefits for health.

Bao Loc Lotus tea makes from Shan Tran Ninh tea, with large, soft, and spongy tea leaves. These tea trees belong to Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica. We grow tea at a height of 700 – 800m above sea level, with temperatures from 17 – 25oC. This traditional tea has yellow color after brewing, delightfully aromatic, and moderate bitter taste. And we mix tea with herbs.

Classification of Lotus Green Tea

There are two types of Lotus tea. The first, we mix lotus and herbs such as cinnamon, illicium verum, foeniculum vulgare, cullen corylifolium, styphnolobium japonicum and aglaia duperreana. The second one is mixed with the rice of the lotus flower form West Lake in Ha Noi, which is also called Vietnamese traditional lotus tea.

The important point is the tea maker select the best lotus flower and high quality green tea to make Tay Ho lotus tea. In the past, they used the best quality tea to mix which they called “Man Hao tea”. This tea is Shan tea in high mountain with the perfect tea buds. And the processing is quite complex. After picking tea leaves, they steamed it until getting out the bitter taste. Then, they dried it again and put the dried banana leaves inside the clay vase under the dried tea leaves. They fermented it for 3 – 5 years. This step helps the flavor of lotus flower is easy to get into tea leaves longer and deeply when mixing together.

Nowadays, most of people who like lotus tea changed the taste. They prefer to enjoy the little bitter taste inside with the rich flavor lotus flower. Because of that, the tea maker use Thai Nguyen green tea inspite of Shan tea to mix. They just dry tea leaves and mix rice of lotus flower inside without fermenting for long time.
