My Review
I love drinking tea and I am a constant tea drinker. Do you love to drink tea as much as I do? 😍

Recently, I was introduce something new. You all know what seahorse is right? But have you drink blended tea with seahorse as one of the ingredient inside? I just did last week. The tea is non other than Rarita Seahorse Blended Tea. 
Rarita Seahorse Blended Tea
The tea came sealed in a box of 20 packets.  
Sealed.
Came in a box of 20 individual pack.
Very thoughtful to place it in a small pack, convenient for me to place in my bag and bring out.
Place in individual small pack, convenient to bring around.
Usually teabag came with a square holder, printed with the tea brand and flavour. But for this Seahorse blended tea, it came with a very cute holder that looks almost like a seahorse. Erm...almost....

Cute looking teabag holder.
So cute right? But how to place it on the cup? I took a few second to play around with the teabag holder. πŸ˜πŸ˜œπŸ˜›

Teabag holder placed nicely onto the cup.
Ok, playing aside, the first thing I always do is to smell the teabag. Not sure if you are the same as me? 😁 

I though there will be a very heavy medicine smell like those I smell from traditional Chinese medical store since there are so many medicinal ingredients in it. But it actually don't. There is a light herbal sweet smell. Smell Ok to me. But my mum told me it smell like Dang Gui(当归). 

The tea itself is light brown in color after brewing in hot water.

Teabag holder still stays nicely on the cup.

I like to drink my tea hot! But my mum like to drink it warm.😏 Then we realize that different temperature of the tea, produces different taste. 

When it's hot, the tea taste more luscious sweet with a hint of mint and lemon taste. Chinese saying, it taste η”˜η”œ. 

But when it's warm, I can taste light herbal taste and less rich.

The tea does not have the usual tea bitter taste. Even if it's place in the water for long, it won't turn bitter. In fact, it taste even more fragrance. 

I quite like the taste. Although there are 8 oriental herbal used, I don't feel like drinking medicine at all. My mum love the taste too. 

2 things I notice from drinking the tea. The tea actually helps to quench my thirst and make me feel less lethargic.

You must be asking me, any seahorse taste, right? Erm....actually, how does seahorse taste like ah? Hahahahaha 😳...... I have never taste it before, so not really sure. But maybe the sweetness from the tea came from seahorse?πŸ™ˆ

Ok before I end my review, let me show you want is inside the teabag. 
Can you spot which ingredient is which?
Overall, this is a nice tea to drink. Something you should replace your gassy drink with during tea break. For better health. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
Thanks for reading. Enjoy your tea!!! Cheers!!
