Day 5: Roasted Oolong Tea
Flavor Highlights: This drink was not my ‘cup of tea’. The darker, richer earthy taste of tea was a bit too much for me. This tea is almost along the lines of coffee but with that subtle tea flavor. I feel I enjoyed the Teasia Oolong Tea as it is so adding a roasting to it did not enhance it for me.
Nonetheless, this is a tea I would prefer drinking on a hot day served cold with ice and milk and sugar paired with something sweet like a scone or cupcakes!
Ready for a relaxing facial steam? This is a great at home remedy to try after you’ve had a long day and are wanting to kick back and begin unwinding for the day. These vitamin packed ingredients will leave your skin feeling healthy and refreshed, not to mention it’ll help open your pores helping rid of any unwanted toxins.

This series has 3 caffeinated teas and 1 caffeine-free tea:
Genmaicha Green Tea
Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese green tea that is also known as “popcorn tea” due to the grains of rice that pop during the roasting process. The roasted rice lends to a rich and nutty aroma that blends perfectly with the fresh flavor of green tea.
Earl Grey Tea
Earl Grey Tea is a timeless classic that first became popular in England. Black tea is flavored with oil of bergamot, adding a sweet and light citrus aroma. The pleasant and fresh finish after each sip makes Earl Grey a perfect afternoon tea.
English Breakfast Tea
English Breakfast Tea is one of the world’s most popular black tea blends recognized by its robust and full-bodied flavor originating from Assam, Ceylon, and Kenya. We added a twist to this classic by adding Taiwan Black Tea leaves to the traditional blend. Enjoy with a splash of milk for a creamier texture.
Honeybush Tea (Caffeine-Free)
Honeybush Tea is cultivated during the flowering period of the honeybush plant, which is only grown in small areas of South Africa. This naturally caffeine-free tea has a distinctive honey taste and is commonly enjoyed with milk and sugar or on ice!
