The person who coined the phrase "all the tea in China" must've really known what they were talking about. I realized this when I was in China over the summer. There was tea absolutely everywhere! Huge tea shops were around every corner and most people carried around a water bottle of freshly steeped tea all day. With all of this heavy tea drinking going on, I couldn't help but wonder if tea was partially responsible for the Chinese women's gorgeous complexions.
Connie Tai, founder of MIYU Teas & Beauty, seems to think so, as she has developed a whole line of facial mists and teas that are centered around Traditional Chinese Medicine, which of course involves a lot of herbal blends often found in tea. I had the pleasure of sampling some of the MIYU Beauty Teas, which supposedly hydrate and reenergize the skin from within. I received two tea samples, one De-Stress Mi Tea * and one Hydrate Mi Tea*. I am pleased to say they were both delicious, but my favorite was the De-Stress Mi Blend. As for whether or not they rehydrated my skin, it is a bit harder to tell. I feel like when you're consuming something in the hopes of improving your complexion, you need to use it for at least a few weeks.
One of my favorite things about these teas, however, is the little pearls in the teabags. I'm not too sure what purpose they serve, but they're just so pretty! If you're looking to purchase some MIYU products, head to their website. Each of their "pairings", each containing one facial mist and one tea, work together to improve your complexion. I encourage you to check out their "Our Philosophy" section as well. They are truly an interesting brand.
