Tea Breakfast At Zhao Zhou

tea

What would be a better way to start a weekend than having a tea breakfast? Last Saturday I joined a tea breakfast organized by Zhao Zhou teahouse. It was such a lovely morning! We had 3 + 1 teas to taste and a super delicious breakfast made by Mariann at Bazsalikomoskert.

We started with Matcha tea from Japan. Above there's a picture of Zhao Zhou's Agi preparing matcha. I have tried matcha for a few times before, but not quite found it delicious enough to drink it on daily basis. Btw, a friend of mine living in London makes excellent matcha and this one which Agi made had pretty much the same tasty flavour. I read somewhere that adding soya or coconut milk instead of water makes the drink milder and soft tasting, but unfortunately that didn't work for me.

The second tea was No. 519 Gaba oolang 2017 from Taiwan. It has a smooth texture and there're notes of vanilla and apple with a slightly tart finish. Gaba is one of the most effective natural remedies for a wide-range of nervous systems disorders caused by deficiency of Gaba in the brain, including insomnia, depression and hypertension.

The third tea was No 521 Milan Xiang Dancong 2017 from Phoenix Mountain. This tea has a special thick, sweet and floral flavour. If you pair this tea with meals it improves digestion.

Tha last tea was freshly picked Tisane from Bazsalikumkert. Tisane is actually not a tea but herbal drink. Our tisane had a wonderful fresh taste of rosemary and other herbs.

(FI) Tässä ihan vaan lyhyesti suomeksi. Viime lauantaina osallistuin aivan fantastiseen teeaamiaiseen Zhao Zhoussa Budapestissa. Maistelimme 3 eri teelaatua ja yhtä yrttijuomaa. Mariann Bazsalikomoskertistä oli valmistanut täydellisen aamiaisen, josta ei puuttunut mitään. Oli kyllä todella upea aloitus päivälle!

  2. I never heard that coconut milk substitution before. I’m thinking it might work in some situation, but not the one you tried. Nice try.

    1. Well, there was no coconut milk at this breakfast. I had read somewhere that makeing matcha tea with coconut milk makes it less bitter or something and tried it at home once, but didn't like, so i rather have my matcha made with water.

    1. Funny how everyone seems to be a bit obsessed by my mentioned of coconut milk, which was not even served at this breakfast :D

  7. About the kettle - simply prestine. It looks very special, and flawless. Having a proper tea in Asia is not like grabbing a coffee in Starbucks. It comes with many meaning, which are associated in good living.

  13. I have a special place in my heart for tea. When I was a kid, every afternoon my grandmother stopped what she was doing, sat down for tea and a little bit of whatever kind of snack cake she had on her kitchen counter. The conversations we had are still some of my favorites. Fun to remember .. x
