Tea Collection! Part 1

Hi everyone!
Are you a coffee or tea person?
For me, it's most definitely tea! It really calms me down and whenever I feel like drinking something other than water, I think it's the best option as it has a lot of health benefits.
Tea has caffeine too, just a lot less, so I usually drink it when i'm studying! and I won't be as stressed out, heh heh.

Because of this, I've been collecting tea since the beginning of this year and I love love love all of it and hope that you who loves tea as well, or not, will try it too!

 So this is all that I have.

I'm gonna start with this one! It's jasmine white tea. It's really fragrant and it comes in this packaging. It has rolled up leaves in it and just a few of them will give a strong and fragrant taste!
I got this as a gift from a good friend of mine, Nigel! Thanks so muchh! I like it a whole lot :D
This one is extra calming! Very nice!
Health benefits - powerful antioxidant, reduces fat and cholesterol absorption and calms your nerves.

This is just green tea which I have not actually tried yet, cause I still have the japanese green teabags! but once I do, I'll make sure to signify any differences between this loose leaf ones and the teabags! It probably is more pure as those in teabags often are a mixture.
Health benefits - improve blood flow, lower cholesterol and has antioxidants that fight and may prevent cell damage

This is the japanese green tea that comes in teabags!


This one is blue mallow flower! I first found out about this tea in an anime called Special A, where they were having a tea party at Akira's. I was fascinated by it because it supposingly stains and the tea becomes blue. Plus if you add any citrus juice, it will turn pink! I've been looking for it and my parents said they found it in a night market in Malacca.
When I tried this, it actually is black tea. So maybe this is a different type! but it still is good! More to the bitter side though!
Health benefits - good for constipation, husky voice, sore throat, sooth coughing and mosturizing the skin.

This is red rose! Its tea tastes just like how you would imagine roses to taste like, floral. I have not tried this alone, as I've always been mixing it with the apple flower! The shop assistant insists that the combination, together with lavender, is really good! Which is true!
Health benefits - helps menstrual cramps, have vitamin C and contains polyphenols.

The apple flower looks hairy but I think this is how it is suppose to be, haha. Also, have not tried it on its own! But I think the freshness of the tea comes from this.
Health benefits - improves digestive, remove excess fat, clears acne, lighten pigmentation, ease nerves and revitalized blood. Good for the skin

This one is french rose tea! Its taste is actually very different from the red rose tea, in my opinion! It is more fragrant and has a more floral taste! It is my friend, Yvonne's favourite. When she comes over, I'll always brew this especially for her! It goes very well with cakes! This is one of my fav as well! I often have this while studying too.
Health benefits - clears toxin, contains vitamin C, skin whitening and calms your nerves.

If you're a fan of earl grey, I say that you must totally try this! It's mixed with tangerine and I think those ingredients go so very well together! The chemistry they have is like mixing strawberries with cream and chocolate with banana, amazing! It is so fragrant as well. I got this from Cameron Highlands, during my family trip a few months back and I don't regret it at all! So goood!
Health benefits - contains antioxidant, lowers cholesterol, good for digestion, relief stress

I've been wanting to try lavender tea for quite some time, as I have always been a fan of the scent when it comes to body or shampoo products! It smells really nice! Little did I know that the tea is entirely different! It's definitely an acquired taste, unfortunately not for me. I gag at the scent and taste of it but there are people who love it! I have also tried it with citrus(changes colour too) but I simply just can't have it on its own!
Health benefits - promotes relaxation, helps digestive system, relieves indigestion and insomnia

before adding lemon...

after adding lemon!

Now this is probably my number one right here! As you all might know, i'm a big fan of strawberries! This is actually wild strawberry green tea and it tastes and smells fantastic! I'm not even exaggerating when I say you'll feel as if you are in a strawberry field with lots of flowers, while drinking this! It tastes fruity and like flowers at the same time and it definitely won me over! Must try! :) It is definitely calming too! This mixture is perfection.
Whenever I have guests over, I make them try this tea all the time! hehe.

I'm going to stop here for now and do a second part next time! Hope you enjoyed this and please do try some too! I think it's worth it :) and you can probably find most of them in the supermarket now!

Talking about tea is so exciting!
