‘Drinking a daily cup of tea will surely starve the apothecary.’
Prior to becoming a widely loved milk-infused beverage and used as a contemporary term for “gossip,” tea was first famous for its herbal properties. From its long history in ancient Asia and its arrival in the Western world to our today’s time, steeping dried leaves in hot water has proven to be beneficial in improving brain function and helping the body avoid certain illnesses.
Through the years, the world has produced a number of kinds of teas to brew for specific purposes. If you are on a search for the tea for your beauty and bodily concerns, global tea brand TWG Tea curated an extensive tea list to help you pick the perfect one.
For a restful sleep
To relax and calm the body, white tea is known to have the highest concentration of polyphenols and antioxidants which lower your body temperature and stimulate the immune system.
TWG Tea recommends: White Sky Tea, a union of two of the most noble ingredients known to man—Majestic Yin Zhen white tea leaves and ylang ylang flowers. This white tea is a drop of heaven in a teacup.
Revitalizing tired eyes
To overcome tired eyes, place two cool, pre-infused tea bags on your eyes for a few minutes. The natural tannins and vitamins in the tea stimulate the contours of the eyes and revitalize the skin, leaving them fresh and rejuvenated.
TWG Tea recommends: French Earl Grey, a classic TWG Tea black tea delicately blended with citrus fruits and French blue cornflowers.
For chapped lips
Apply a cool, pre-infused tea bag to the lips to promote cell renewal and to protect lips from the drying effects of cold or wind. Follow with a coat of natural lip balm for additional protection.
TWG Tea recommends: 1837 Green Tea, an aromatic green tea blend boasting a lofty fruit and flower bouquet with a delicious aftertaste of red fruits and caramel with a light touch of astringency; or Sweet France Tea, a graceful TWG Tea blend that combines green tea with exotic flowers and a touch of chamomile.
Strengthening teeth and nails
Tea prevents the onset of dental decay, while the tannins in tea sweeten your breath. For a fresh-tasting mouthwash, choose a mint green tea. To strengthen nails, soak in warm tea for several minutes.
TWG Tea recommends: Moroccan Mint Tea, a fine TWG Tea green tea perfectly blended with suave and strong Sahara mint. A timeless classic and great favorite.
To alleviate sunburns, try soaking in a cool bath mixed with six to eight liters of a strong tea infusion. It will contribute to the regeneration of skin cells, as tea contains zinc and vitamins A and B.
TWG Tea recommends: 1837 Black Tea, a unique blend of black tea with notes of fruits and flowers from the Bermuda triangle, which leaves a lingering aftertaste of ripe berries, anise, and caramel.
For a safe tanned hue
Apply the infusion to your skin with a cotton swab and allow it to dry before rinsing. You can use this recipe to maintain a healthy glow all year round, so as to avoid damaging effects of the sun.
TWG Tea recommends: English Breakfast Tea, a classic originally blended as an accompaniment to the traditional English breakfast. Very strong and full-bodied with light floral undertones.
Brightening blond highlights
To brighten blond hair, prepare a generous infusion of chamomile with a spoon of fresh lemon juice and apply to clean, dry hair. Expose hair to the sun for a few hours for natural golden highlights.
TWG Tea recommends: Soft and soothing, TWG Tea Chamomile flowers boast a rich honey aroma and yield a golden, theine-free cup.
