Time for Tea Please?
As you all know I love receiving TeaPost , so when Heywood Teas contacted me about trying their tea all the way from Hong Kong I was very excited . I’ve never received TeaPost from Hong Kong before.
Heywood Teas “specializes in producing high quality functional tea in Hong Kong”. They also mix their herbal ingredients based on Chinese medicinal formula.

Today I’m sipping on Chrysanthemum & Wolfberry Tea.
Within the use of Chinese Herbal Medicine :
Chrysanthemum: Clear excess heat and toxins, benefit vision and promote cardiovascular and liver health
Wolfberry: Relieve eye fatigue, improve eye function, delay aging and boost immune system

When opening the foil tea pouch which Heywood Tea favour, to block out heat and moisture you are engulfed with the floral notes of the chrysanthemum. I’m not overly getting any hint of Wolfberry. However more of you may know the Wolfberry known as the Goji berry.
Aroma brewing is completely different to that of its dried state. Their is still floral notes to the tea but it almost smells gingery. A bit like a gingerbread green tea I’ve tried before.
I didn’t overly know what to expect from the brewed liquid of the tea and was rather surprised with how yellow it was. Although it does make sense considering the yellow aspects of the packaging which is the perfect colour match.
First sip is very interesting. I’m not overly able to specifically pin point a specific taste. It is however very light and refreshing . It’s not bitter and from the the use of the Wolfberry their is an added sweetness to the brew.
Mellow Yellow certainly fits not just the colouring but the taste too.
The tea itself isn’t unpleasant it’s just an acquired taste and something I don’t think I’ve actually tasted before. It’s one of those teas that makes me want to sip it all to the end due to the amazing health benefits the tea can give for you. From the herbal medicinal benefits mentioned earlier it sounds like it could be a perfect hangover brew or after a heavy weekend of eating too many treats.
Happy Sipping 🙂
