Green tea lovers, if you've never tried this one you must!

Green Tea with Thai Flavors, 20ct Sachets in a tin-Harney & Sons Teas

It's very mildly flavored but extremely fragrant. Enjoy!

I've tried the many, off hand I remember tropical orange and the hot cinnamon spice for sure, but Bangkok is my absolute favorite. I literally buy it by the case with my wholesale number.

All of their teas are delicious and they do not have the kind of heavy, artificially flavored taste that many flavored green teas do. With the Bangkok you get a very nice, light coconut aroma on top, and the lemongrass and ginger balance it out perfectly. i discovered Harney at a Tapas restaurant one night and tossed the tea wrapper into my purse because it smelled so good! The next day I had to order it. I've never seen Harney Teas at any stores so I think you would have to get it on line.

Not sure about the preservatives, I never used those...

Speaking of Skinceuticals B5, I made my own version with more B5, added B3 and DMAE, less HA and it turned out great, not as thick as Skinceuticals, but sooo good to my skin. My DIY masterpiece!
In fact, I might just mix tea in the next batch instead of water.

Ray, I have all the products ready to order from Lotioncrafters (except for hawthorn hydrosol...is that necessary?). As soon as I'm out of my white tea serum I will make this. How would you go about dissolving the powders? Basically, I have no clue to to make all this into a serum! Thanks!

Hi...does anyone have an answer to my above question? I love the specific directions for the Vit C serum, so I was wondering if anyone knows how to make Ray's magnificent White tea serum step by step - I'm directionally challenged...while driving, walking, and making skin care products.

Thanks in avance

If it's extract you have all you need is to blend it with water. If it's dry tea leafs I think it needs heat to free antioxidants (hot water). If it's tea leafs an extract can be made with alcohol too, in to a tincture. It keeps better than a tea brew, and all the antioxidants are active.

Thanks Blue. I have the dry leaves and will make it into an extract. But I meant how do I make the serum that Ray proposed above? I'm extremely new to this DIY stuff.

This is the one (from Ray):
"Hawthorn hydrosol - 10 ml,
White tea, undiluted - 10 ml,
Vit B5 powder - 1/3 tsp,
HA - just a pinch so the serum doesn't end up being all runny as stuff.
Not sure about the preservatives, I never used those..."

I would add liquid Germall for the preservative.

Thanks.

Hawthorn hydrosol might work as a preservative, at least for a limited period of time, and with some of the properties of hawthorn essential oil. White tea will probably rather quickly loose it's antioxidative effects as a tea. I have tried to look this up but n
