Flora Teas

Anniversary Tea

Today's tea is Harrods' Anniversary. I bought a canister of this tea at Heathrow before my flight back to Bergen earlier this year.

Rooibos Tea

Redbush tea or rooibos tea is a good alternative to green tea because it is caffeine free and its benefits are similar to green tea. Rooibos tea comes from South Africa, from a rooibos bush. It is no way a relative of green tea, since green tea is made from Camelia Sinensis plant. A week... Continue Reading →

Sencha from Shizouka

My Sencha story Sencha tea was introduced to me by a friend of mine only 2 years ago. Before that, I used to drink Earl Grey and Lipton. My tea drinking habits were not that healthy before because I used a lot of sugar (because Earl Grey and Lipton teas dry my throat), when I... Continue Reading →
