My Review
Its tea time!!! Yes, it's my Hi-Tea time again!!! :D And this time round, Hi-Tea have a new packaging. Follow me to find out now. 

As you may have previously seen, Hi-Tea Flower Tea comes in one individual sachet. That is their old package as they have come out with new packaging.

Now Hi-Tea Flower Tea comes in each individual, nice 4 way safe see through 50 gram light brown package. 

Yes see through means you can see the flower tea now!

How 4 way safe? The pack is water proof, it comes in a zip lock for resealing, it's fire seal at the top to ensure the pack you received is fresh and new and the sticker pasted on the bag ensure it's not opened.

Kudos to the Hi-Tea team, all these packing of tea, to sealing to pasting the stickers to checking of the tea before delivering it to you are all done by human work, Not machine work. So you can now not worry and feel safe as each and every pack is carefully inspected before delivery. 

Each pack also comes with a refreshment chip inside the bag to ensure the tea stays dry.

This new packing means that I can better blend my own tea and adjust them according to my liking. Great for me to do more DIY. :)

How about those who still like them in sachet for traveling? Well you can always blend your own tea, then pack them in empty tea sachet that can be bought easily and finally place the sachet made in a container. This way, the tea that I bring along while traveling now contain my own unique tea that can't go wrong!

With this new individually pack loose tea, I am having a great time having fun doing DIY to the tea. 

Before I go on to the fun of playing with the tea, let us look at one new tea here first, Rosemary tea. 
Trying out Rosemary tea.
I have eaten rosemary chicken but drinking it as tea!! I asked myself, "Are you sure!!??" So I did try making myself a very small cup

I have seen rosemary chop up into very small pieces but Hi-Tea's rosemary tea came in longer bigger rosemary leaves.

The rosemary tea came colorless with just very light rosemary smell.  

And surprisingly, rosemary tea taste quite pleasant and fragrance. It taste even better when drink cold. Its quite hard to explain the taste but the feeling is just about the same when drinking lemongrass tea. Just simply it taste like
Rosemary tea came colorless.
But if you still find it strange to drink rosemary tea, then eat them! I have tried marinating these rosemary tea into my pork rib and it taste simply delicious!!

Delicious rosemary pork rib.
Enough of rosemary. let's move on to more DIY. 
Previously, I have tried drinking the readily packed relaxation special blended tea by Hi-Tea. To recall, it taste too bitter for me as the lavender is overwhelming. 

So, with these new pack of loose tea, I can now easily adjust and blend my own relaxation tea that suits my taste bud. :)

What did I blend? Besides lavender and chamomile, I added rosemary to form Swanple's relaxation tea.  
DIY Relaxation Tea.

This time round, I added more chamomile and reduce the lavender. Also I added some amount of rosemary by using my gut feeling....hahaha
Amount I used for 1 pot of tea.

It produces the same yellow color tea but taste so much better. 
Yellow in color.
There is a sweet chamomile taste with a very light lavender and rosemary taste towards the end. Also the rosemary taste is gone when the tea turns cold.

I love my own DIY blended relaxation tea. Taste just as I want it to be. ;)

But for those who want to blend back Hi-Tea's relaxation special blended Tea that you have drink in sachet previously, you can do so too. Its actually 2gm of chamomile tea and 2gm of lavender tea. 
Well, I know you must be scolding me right now. "Are you crazy!!! Singapore so hot still drink hot tea??!!!" Ok Ok Ok. Actually I sometimes think this way too. :p

Hm...ok then don't drink it hot. Let's make it cold till it freezes your brain. So I decided to make my own DIY Peach fruit tea ice-cream!!! Just the thought of it already makes me so excited. 

Ingredient used is simple. Just Hi-Tea peach fruit tea with strawberries.
