It is often that we get asked 'what tea is best for my skin? What tea is best for my hair?' etc. This encouraged us to give you the information you have been asking for, beginning with the bodies largest organ, SKIN.
All of the Midsummer Tea blends are created using organic silver needle tea. This silver needle is the 'Hero Ingredient' in all of our blends, with health and beauty benefits that are beyond amazing. This kind of tea comes from the same plant as green and black, the Camelia Sinensus plant, but the silver needle is the first to be harvested. Silver needle is plucked from the tea plant when it is very young and still in bud form, meaning it has not yet opened up into a leaf, and it has tiny silver hairs on it which is of course where its name came from. Silver needle is pure and rich in goodness, it contains more antioxidants than any other tea. These antioxidants repair cells all over the body, which keeps your body strong and flu free. The antioxidants also protect and repair the two main proteins in the skin, COLLAGEN + ELASTIN, making this a natural and potent ingredient for skin care.
Now, like we mentioned above, all of our tea blends contain this 'HERO' ingredient, but they also contain many other health beneficial ingredients. We have broken down each blend to figure out if one blend contained more benefits for the skin than the others and we have found that we have one stand out blend, our original 'SUMMER BLEND'!!
Our summer blend is more fruity and refreshing than the others. It has been designed specifically to assist the body's needs during the summer months. It makes for the perfect iced tea, and contains fruits and flowers that are plentiful during these months.

Keep in mind drinking one cup is not going to give you overnight success, this tea is magical but its not THAT magical. Drinking 2-3 cups (or more) everyday for 1 month you will start to see results, not only your skin but your overall health. After 2-3 months you should notice a more even skin tone and a glow in your complexion. They don't call Silver Needle 'the tea of eternal youth' for nothing.
