I’ve been down with the flu for the past 2 weeks and it has been quite miserable with the blocked nose and sore throat. This flu is my healing crisis from my parasite cleansing and when one is sick, one reaches for comfort and for me, one of that is tea.
Since Hi-Tea has a special blend of teas called “Health Series” I thought that it would be perfect to drink it while I’m under the weather. I love how each bag is individually wrapped so as to maintain its freshness. This is important because Hi-Tea teas are all natural and made with dried flowers and fruit with no preservatives.
As they come in bags, it’s so easy to pop one into a mug, add hot water and let it steep for 3-5 minutes before sipping the brew. The Health tea is made with jasmine, lemongrass and dried lemon which is why the resulting brew was both refreshing in terms of taste and smell. Love how it was mildly sweet, which I was not expecting since there’s lemon inside. It really helped to clear up my sinuses and relieve some of my sore throat. If you want, you can add honey to the tea and it’ll be a naturally sweet and healthy drink.
For bulk brew, I used a tea pot and as mine is pretty large, I added 2 tea bags and steeped it for 5 minutes. In this case, I brewed Hi-Tea’s Beauty blend. This is a blend of French Rose, jasmine flower and apple flower.

The dried flowers themselves look so pretty so hopefully drinking the tea will help maintain my youthful skin…after all, roses are supposed to contain vitamin C. As with most flower teas, the taste of the Beauty Tea was very light, with the dominant rose flavour and ending with a subtle green apple note.

What I really like about Hi-Tea is the design of the boxes. I could open up the lid, bend it back and now it’s like a having a tea display in my kitchen! Don’t you think the teas look so pretty on my kitchen counter top? Now I know exactly what the boxes contain and can easily pick up a sachet whenever I feel like drinking a cuppa. Two thumbs up for brilliant design!
Since it’s going to be Chinese New Year, I can’t wait to just display the teas on my dining table so that my family and friends who are visiting can just choose whatever tea they’d like. Personally, I can’t wait to try out all their flavours because they do have quite a few others to choose from:
- Fruit teas (peach, apple rose & blueberry)
- Flower teas (chamomile, chrysanthemum, ginseng flower, osmanthus, rose hip, rose, lavender and French rose)
