Chinese tea – a traditional recipe for modern day life
Tea is an integral part of Chinese culture and has been highly regarded for centuries for a multitude of health benefits, ranging from helping with weight management to strengthening immune systems.
The ritual of brewing tea began in ancient China almost 5,000 years ago. Today, tea is the most popular drink in the world, after water, with a huge variety of traditional and herbal teas, each with their unique flavour, experience and positive impact on health.
If you are yet to experience Chinese tea, give it a try today. Here are the top six varieties to help improve your wellbeing:
- Lavender, rosemary and jasmine tea
The naturally soothing and uplifting properties of lavender, rosemary, and jasmine help in relaxation. The calming herbal tea variants aid sleep and encourage long-term health.
- Organic green tea
Green tea is made from unfermented leaves and is said to boost antioxidant levels. The flavonoids in the tea reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting cells and molecules from damage.

A cup of hot chrysanthemum flower or passion fruit tea is believed to help lower blood pressure, remove toxins and enhance eyesight.

The osmanthus flower tea enhances overall lung health, dispelling cold and dampness in the body and eases stomach pain.
