I’m a tea lover! I cannot imagine a day without having one :-) I love to try new once every time, green, herbal, fruity flavours, rooibos, white… All kinds! Sometimes with honey, lemon, ginger, cloves… Love to experiment! I have a quite a big collection of my favourite teas and as I know there is many tea lovers like me out there, so I think you will enjoy this post! ;-)
What is very interesting that all true tea comes from the same plant, called the Camellia sinensis. Whether the tea becomes white, green, oolong or black, depends on how the leaves are processed and oxidized.
Any leaf, root, fruit or flower that comes from a different plant is considered an herbal tea.
Herbal teas, for example: Peppermint ten, Ginger tea, Chamomile tea, Rooibos tea, Lemon balm tea (Malissa), Rosehip tea, Lavender Tea, Hibiscus flower tea and many more.
If you are looking for a tea best for your health, there is few indication which one to choose:
FOR ENERGY- Rooibos – Red tea
FOR BETTER SKIN- White Tea
FOR TEETH- Oolong
FOR HIGH BLOOD SUGAR- Chamomile
FOR GENERAL HEALTH- Black
FOR WEIGHT CONTROL- Green
There is many more things I could go through, the tea subject is so interesting! To keep this post shorter I will finish here. Now is time to share few of my favourite brands!
Tea I drink the most often is Kusmi Tea, I just love their variety, the smell, for every moment I can find the perfect one from their selection. I got from Mike the entire box with their tea collection, It was the best present ever! :-)
My second favourite is Lov Organic, which is another brand by Kusmi tea. Delicious and innovative organic tea and wellness blends. What I also love about it is this lovely eco-friendly packaging!
Whittard – British finest tea, this is my choice for the perfect black tea, amazing scent and flavour. Brand was founded in 1886.
Very chic tea bag and easy to use, brand Tea Forte is one of the Tea I like to serve when I have guest coming over, very good quality, amazing scent. The one I have now is Organic Green Mango Peach, I just love it!
My tea collection from travels – every time I travel, especially to Asia, South America or Africa, I love to bring a good tea as a souvenir. I have a big collection, my fouvorite is green tea from Japan, which we received from a friend, whose family made especially for us! So adorable :-) and incredibly delicious…
