Tea Party

As I don't drink coffee, I have resorted to trying out different kinds of tea to battle the boredom of plain water. It's also a great way to warm up when it gets a bit chilly. At the moment I've got 8 teas in my office drawer:
  1. Green tea with lemongrass and lemon
  2. Whole leaf Chinese white tip green tea
  3. White tea
  4. Chai tea (black tea with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and black pepper)
  5. Lemongrass tea
  6. Pomegranate & grape fruit infusion
  7. Tamarillo & honey fruit infusion
  8. Guarana herbal tea (containing as much caffeine as a standard cup of coffee)
This is in addition to the complimentary tea stocked in the office - English tea, jasmine green tea, and South African rooibos (red bush) tea. On any given day I'd take about 3 or 4 different types of tea - of which I'll limit to a single cup of tea with creamer and sugar. Everything else is taken sans sugar.

I've also got chamomile tea at home for relaxation and sleep aid, but that's not something I need often in a place like New Zealand.

Lemongrass is such an amazing tea!

I often drink it not only because of its refreshing action, but for its health benefits!

It's the perfect detox tea. You can use to detoxify the pancreas, kidneys, bladder and the digestive tract!

I drink it mainly to treat digestive disorders, as I suffer from an ulcer or to ease cold symptoms. It really makes you feel better.

Have you already tried it?

I like Iced Lemon Tea most. I mostly drink this type of tea. It is one of my favourite tea. It feels me refresh and relax.
