Hmart tea purchase
I got 2 *new* teas from Hmart to try recently, & I’ve had 3 teas from each box so far. I like both! A LOT.
When it comes to teas, I don’t like the fancy stuff. Not to throw certain brands/businesses under the bus, but I really dislike what I call as ‘decorated’ teas - aka, teas that contain a lot of random stuff. I like my teas plain & normal. .. In other words, just non-infused teas. (& yes, there is ONE exception, & that is coffee pu’erh. I haven’t restocked but I like this one!)
As a result, I tend to stick to my Asian teas. Black teas & green teas in particular.
In the last decade, I’ve grown to like ‘herbal’ teas. For example, ginseng tea, burdock root tea, barley tea, & of course, can’t forget about my corn tea! These aren’t ‘leaf’ form obviously but I love these!
Today I’m gonna introduce you to 2 teas, & I hope you’ll be able to try these out =]
Tumblr media
The 1st is cassia seed tea.
Yes, I realized there is a best before date, & it’s currently past that but you know what, I don’t care :P we still have tea bags from China from 5 yrs ago in the basement. As long as it’s not open. .. I think it’s all good.
Tumblr media
There are many benefits of cassia seeds, & you can find lots on the Internet on that so I won’t go into details here. The biggest benefit is it improves liver functions & eyesight. This is right up my alley, esp the eyesight thing -.-” Mine’s not bad, & *knock on wood* it’s not getting worse but eye strain for ppl of this century is an issue with the amount of blue light we expose our eyes to.
Tumblr media
The box contains 40 individual tea bags. I just love how the illustration is on every tea bag too.
Here is my preferred way of drinking this tea. Yeah yeahhh I know it’s meant to be individual mug for x minutes.. . but sorry, I don’t do teas that way. I have a small tea pot, & what I found to be the best (for me, personally) was 1 teabag with 500mL boiling water, steeped for like an hour; drinking little by little. I did this on one of my day offs & I literally just left it there as I was reading, blogging, watching stuff. It probably was over an hr. My tea pot holds heat very well, so after an hr, the tea was still pretty warm.
Flavour wise, it was quite sweet. Had bitter undertones but overall, bitter-sweet (emphasis on sweet). Quite floral-y in aroma, which reminded me of perfumes. Or rather, scent pouches that you could find in markets in Asian countries lol I don’t know; it’s a familiar yet foreign fragrance, but it’s light & resembles something that you’ll smell when you put one of those aforementioned pouches up to to your nose haha
Tumblr media
Here is tea #2: polygonatum tea. This has another name called Solomon’s seal (root) tea. Heard of it before?
I have heard of it in Chinese but I didn’t know its English name haha
Again, many benefits. .. I found WAY more things about it in Chinese than in English. Many of which just generically says “improves ‘qi’“. Now, I don’t know much about traditional East Asian medicinal practices; I take these ‘qi’ & other yin/yang theories with a grain of salt. .. however, something that I did find to be a common benefit from a number of different sources was that it improves digestion & circulation. It has similar compounds as ginseng, so like ginseng, rather than targeting specific organs or functions, polygonatum just has “overall health benefits”. Vague, I know. I guess, just think of it as overall well-being.
Tumblr media
100 individually wrapped tea bags.
Not gonna lie, I thought the root-y taste would be stronger but it wasn’t. It was quite bland. I really didn’t add too much water to it. .. Both fragrance & taste was a bit corn tea-like so if you like corn tea, try this one bcos they are very similar!

Lessons from nature
Jasmine pearls aka tea leaves, just look at how they expand when placed in water. This is a perfect depiction of what it means that your environment can help you grow or keep you stagnant. The beauty of nature, not only is it calming and good for your mental health, but you can learn many lessons if you just take a moment to be present and observant.Also, Jasmine tea is the best smelling tea I…

showing you my homemade tea blends storage~
some of them are actually potions, with enchanted herbs & flowers, others are for the simple drinking enjoyment. i will sometimes use sun or moon water to make the tea, which gives a nice kick to it

Tios Hard Tea
BUY IT NOW
We put the tea in cocktails. Sparkling white tea based cocktails, no sugar, low calorie, 4.4% alc.
We've created a sparkling hard tea (alcoholic tea) that combines our favourite cocktails with our love for tea for a not-so guilty pleasure. Created to be low calorie and zero sugar in three different flavours, Tios is the natural alternative to sugary, calorific, pre-mixed drinks and uninspiring hard seltzers. In our humble opinion.
Tios is a sparkling hard tea made with brewed organic white tea, premium spirits (tequila and white rum) and all natural flavours. It's refreshing and offers a unique depth of flavour, with a subtle hint of herbal tea that we think you'll love. It's our go-to drink for any occasion, and with your help, we hope it can become yours too!
We're so excited to present our Tios hard teas: the White Tea Margarita, the White Tea Mojito and the White Tea Light & Stormy.

Self love
I just came to the conclusion that I am more willing to follow a self- love list from a pic off of Pinterest then I am to listen to myself. I don’t even like exercise or eating vegetables or putting makeup on. Why would I want to follow a post from someone who doesn’t even know me instead of actually asking myself... “Hey, maybe we should try a new art style, or learn to draw hands” “Maybe we should try new teas and see if we can find a new favorite?” “Maybe we should actually stop biting our nails off when we are anxious and try to rather draw or journal all of our feelings” 
Maybe I should stop being so afraid of getting to know myself. Maybe I should be a little more willing to spend time alone, with my own thoughts and opinions and stop trying to follow a trend or do things I don’t like...
I think I’ll actually prefer my own company more than I prefer someone else’s. This coming from a professional overthinker and a pro of paranoia. 
Think I will actually achieve more things if I’m rooting for myself.
