My Two Favourite Teas from Earthwise Beauty

marec 01, 2019

Can I stop talking about Earthwise Beauty and their products? Definitely not! I won't shut up. Today won't be about Ava's skincare products though but about two of their gorgeous teas. I've had the pleasure of trying out quite a few of their teas and I have two definitive faves - one is for an energy boost and the other helps to relax the mind and is perfect before bedtime. Both are really delicious, high quality and intentionally sourced. They feel like my mom's homemade herbal tea (which is so yummy!) - filled with love & so much care. Earthwise Beauty's teas come nicely packaged in boxes and the teas itself are hand-packaged in clear bags made of natural cellulose. The bags are made from wood grown in sustainably managed plantations and are certified compostable and recyclable. Yes!

Dragon's Well Green Tea* is described as "toasty, floral, opulent". This is one of the best green teas I've tried, if not the best. It's so, SO good. Dragon's Well Green Tea is the world-renowned, authentic Long Jing from a village near Hangzhou, China. The tea is laboriously hand-harvested and hand-processed using centuries-old local, artisanal techniques. It is a loose whole leaf and bud tea (the leaves are not ripped, chopped, or powdered). No pesticides were used on this tea. Green tea is considered to be one of the most beneficial teas and I make sure to drink it daily. It's rich in antioxidants, it increase immunity, and it has a cooling influence on the body, reducing inflammation that may appear as reddened acne or cold-sore outbreaks, rosacea, or rashes. In China it is customary to brew high quality tea many times and Ava recommends to brew Dragon's Well Green Tea up to four times. I find it perfect if I brew it three times, it's still super delicious and doesn't loose its flavour. So how does it taste? I would describe it as delicate, light, fresh, floral, smooth, never bitter. It is lightly caffeinated so when I really need a boost of energy I have to drink two cups of it, but then on the other hand the low caffeine content of this tea is great if you want to drink it in the afternoon. Yesterday I drank it at around 7 pm and I didn't have any problems with sleeping. Let me also mention Ava's description of the flavour: "it has a fuller flavor than most green teas, with notes of toasted soybeans and florals (unlike most green teas, which are perceived as light-flavored and usually grassy). The flavor of our Long Jing is fresh-green and round." As is with green tea, you also have to be careful not too boil the water when making Dragon's Well. It should be around 80° Celsius. Steep, covered, for 1 to 2 minutes only, then strain if desired but it's not necessary. I always strain my tea and then use the leaves again, with freshly "boiled" water. This green tea is so very yummy and really amazing. I highly recommend it. You can get Dragon's Well Green Tea here.

Chrysanthemum Tea* is a "cooling, relaxing, refreshing whole flower tea". This one is also grown near Hangzhou, China (this is where Ava's in-laws live) on a small family farm in the countryside and is grown without the use of pesticides. I mentioned Chrysanthemum tea before (see here) and some of my readers who are Chinese or are familiar with Chinese medicine all said that this tea is drunk daily and is very beneficial for eye health. Chrysanthemum flowers also have anti-inflammatory properties so drinking the tea often improves the health and appearance of the skin. This tea is said to be wonderful to drink in the evenings, before bedtime to help to relax the mind, to help one unwind at the end of the day and to fall asleep more easily. Chrysanthemum tea has a mild, delicate, almost sweet flavour - it's very pleasant. With this tea you use freshly boiled water and let the flowers steep for about 10 minutes. As you can see on my photos I love to add some Goji Berries to my Chrysanthemum tea - this is a traditional Chinese remedy to improve eye health. I love how this tea tastes and its health benefits additionally draw me to it. You can get Chrysanthemum Tea here.
