Why Chinese Teas?
Most of the world’s traditions have a preventative daily system of health care; from using the principles of Ayurveda in India to ancient shamanic practises in South America. In Chinese culture the amazing and unique array of health giving and beneficial teas play an essential role in their daily cultural wellness.
Their teas also offer us here in the West, an enjoyable and positive way to cope with the stresses of modern life.
Tea is so important in China that it underpins the fabric of their society. When ATTIC’s buyer was asked why she is so proud to be providing us with their national drink, she talks of how tea is highly revered as both a humble drink and a life-affirming practises for all of humanity. In her words “tea keeps people healthy, slim, spirited and balanced”.
All our teas have similar properties that enhance general health and wellness. These include the well-documented antioxidants, relaxant amino acids & vitamins and minerals essential to optimising the functions of our bodies, reducing cholesterol & boosting our immunity.
But at ATTIC we go a step further, investigating the five different types of Chinese tea (white, green, oolong, black & pu’erh), being interested particularly in their unique characteristics. What we have discovered is that different teas support the changing needs of your body throughout the day, from enhancing digestive power to maintaining energy to promoting more restful sleep.
We have chosen the very best tea from each category & to make the most out of their positive qualities, we suggest drinking at least a few cups every day. With this in mind, we have created an easy way, the ATTIC day, to discover which teas are most appropriate to your needs. We also offer a fun and easy way to brew the loose leaves and get the most out of drinking these teas, the ATTIC tea ritual.
We have taken the essence of this Eastern daily practice and made it relevant to our more Western needs & tastes. You can enjoy our teas in their pure form or blended with natural ingredients which we have carefully chosen to support certain qualities in the tea & add different flavour combinations.
We know you will love the benefits you feel from drinking ATTIC teas, & hope they will contribute to a happier, healthier life.
We welcome you to ATTIC, Drink life differently
