My Review
Thanks to Hi-Tea for sending the packets of teas for this review.

Today focus will be on Hi-Tea Fruit teas.
Hi-Tea Fruit Tea Series.
I love to drink tea. Especially when the tea contains natural ingredients and minus caffeine and other unnecessary items in it. That means I can drink it anytime anywhere without worrying. As I have sensitive gastric, so I am very careful about tea with caffeine. Thankfully no such worry drinking Hi-Tea. :)

Lets start with the package. Hi-Tea are pack in a nice box of 10 sachets.

Lets start our tea appreciation session.
High Tea begin with a nice set of tea pot and tea cup.
Blueberry Fruit Tea
Sachet of Blueberry Fruit tea.
This is the fruit tea I love most among the 3 fruit tea Hi-Tea have.

The blueberry produces very fragrance blueberry smell right from the start when I just pour hot water over the tea up to after the tea is finished when empty pot is left. The blueberry smell simply smell great.

For the benefit of all, I tear open the tea bag to let all see what is inside. I usually love it inside the tea bag as it makes my tea looked neat. Those who love it emptied into the tea pot can do so too. The taste will be the same.

From the look at what is inside, I can indeed see blueberry inside. :D
What is inside the blueberry fruit tea bag.
The tea looks red in color. Very nice natural color from the ingredients inside.
How it looks like.
Blueberry tea have a natural red color from the tea used.
I love to drink tea warm. So naturally I tried it warm first. It produces a very tasty sweet and sour taste. More of a blueberry taste and a very light rose taste.

I tried it cold too. Not as tasty as I feel when I drink it warm. Cold blueberry tea taste slightly thinner while the warm one taste thicker. So I personally recommend it warm.

No need to add any sugar or honey as its sweet enough already. It taste delicious already just as it is.

Apple Rose Fruit Tea
Sachet of Apple Rose Fruit Tea.
Apple rose fruit tea produces a very light apple smell when I smell it before I drink it.

From the look of what is inside, I can indeed see dried apple and orange inside.
What is inside the apple fruit tea bag.
The tea looks very red. Makes me feel like I am a Dracula drinking blood.
How it looks like.
Apple rose tea have a natural very red color from the tea used.
The apple rose tea taste most sour among the 3 fruit tea. Its produces more rose taste with a slight apple taste.

I like it warm too for this apple tea. Better taste then when I drink it cold.

Peach Fruit Tea
Sachet of Peach Fruit Tea.
Peach tea produces a nice light peach smell.

Same as the rest, I opened it and find it amuse to see small little pieces of peach inside. First time I see it in my peach tea as usually its only peach concentrate not the real peach in my tea. :)
What is inside the peach fruit tea bag.
The tea...erm have the same red color as the blueberry tea. I thought it will be yellow in color. LOL... Eh...wait a second.....I realize all 3 fruit tea have almost the same red in color. This is the reason why its natural with no artificial color. Great.
How it looks like.
Peach tea have a natural very red color from the tea used.
It taste sweet and a little sour, almost the same as blueberry but minus the blue berry taste.

Well I love peach tea. So I have quite high hope before drinking it. But after drinking, I find it a little disappointed. Although it still taste really delicious. This is because it taste mostly rose when warm. I can hardly taste the peach taste.

But then I realize it is not the case when drink cold. The peach taste is stronger and nicer when drink cold. So I recommend drinking peach tea cold. Although the peach taste is still not strong enough for me.

Peach tea rank the last of my favourite among the 3 Hi-tea fruit tea. Not because it is not nice. It is nice too. Just that I feel that peach taste should be heavier.

Actually, all 3 fruit tea taste almost the same to me with a little different in fruit taste. The base taste the same.

Nuxe White Range of Products.

Nuxe White Range of Products.
To recap, Nuxe White skincare line combines the power of White Flowers and Vitamin C to target the 3 key factors of skin transparency:
  • Whiteness - reduction in the number and appearance of dark spots.
  • Luminosity - action on radiance for a rosy and radiant complexion.
  • Hydration - proven moisturising effectiveness for replumped, supple and soft skin.
What I like is also the nice fresh fragrance that it gave off from the natural flowers used. Besides that, Nuxe White has a sensory light, silky and fresh texture. 

Today, the newest product in Nuxe White range that makes it a complete set is Nuxe White Brightening Renewing Night Cream.

I learn 2 new tips during the demo from Ryan. Share with all of you.
  • Nuxe White BB Cream have only 1 color. To make the BB Cream lighter in color for lighter complexion, mix the Nuxe White BB Cream with Nuxe White Serum.
