Dried olives - chinese tea ceremony, where to buy?
- BamiaWruz Jan 20, 2010 03:25 PM
I saw a show on foodtv canada, where bob blumer featuring a chinese tea ceremony and the snacks that were to accompany the tea were these olives. Does anyone know where I can find these or what they're called.
So far I bought some candied olives or something from an asian candy store, but they're not the same as the ones on the show.
Any help would be appreciated!
I've never noticed dried olives anywhere, but maybe one of those chinese herb shops will carry dried olives. A lot of those stores sell preserved/dried items aside from herbs.
These are the sweeten and slightly sour. They are juicy and softer/chewy. Am I correct?
These are the more unaltered preserved one. They are drier and I remember still being salty even though they claim to be natural favor:
I also saw another preserved olive online and these are darker and drier. I have attached the picture to this reply.
I don't think there is a wrong one, but there are certainly more than one or two kinds of Chinese preserved olive.
