Caffeine-Free Herbal Tea

This is the box of caffeine-free herbal tea that I bought from Village Grocer last week. There are 5 packs of flavours inside – lemon zinger, peppermint, sleeptime, chamomile and wild berry zinger. I have not tried all the flavours yet but I find the chamomile very soothing. If you’re looking for caffeine-free tea, do check out Village Grocer. They sell a wide range of them. I did a google search on Celestial Seasonings and found out that their ingredients used are in accordance with the guidelines set by the FDA. Want to know why I’m so into caffeine-free products now? Come back for the updates…….

Brewing My Favorite Tea

Apart from Japanese tea, I love Crysanthemum flower tea. My mil who is a discerning tea lover has a cute and handy tea brewing set from Korea which I can make my tea in a jiffy. I just need to put in the Crysanthemum flower buds into the ceramic strainer and after letting the flowers steep in hot water for a few minutes, I remove the ceramic strainer and pour out the tea into my cup. I use this tea brewer almost everday to brew my favorite Crysanthemum flower tea.

The Crysanthemum flower buds. These tiny ones in buds have a stronger aroma than the big petals Crysanthemum.

Investing in Tea

Anyone wants to invest in tea? More and more people are choosing to invest in tea these days, especially Pu Err tea as the prices of tea (good quality, superior tea) have been going up steadily for the last few years. In fact, the price of tea has gone up even higher than the price of gold. The older the tea is, the more price it will fetch. Unbelievable eh? I also find it hard to believe but I’ve been reading it from the internet and from the papers very frequently these days.
