Due to their exceptional nutritional value and adaptability, which allows them to be incorporated into virtually any dish or beverage, these tiny yet mighty berries have become a mainstay in modern diets.

Iman continued, "My young children, in particular, enjoy blueberries in their cupcakes, and as a parent, I feel more confident including fresh, high-quality, and nourishing ingredients in their preferred snacks and beverages." Chef Zie Zie added to the culinary experience of the event by showcasing the creation with a mouthwatering Blueberry Rosemary Grilled Chicken Poke Bowl. Participants had the chance to taste the fusion of flavours that blueberries bring.

Then, we were invited to take part in an interactive cooking demonstration where they made their own Blueberry Cream Cheese Mini Tarts and a cool Blueberry Colada beverage. I was so excited to get my hands on in making myself a cheese mini tart and truly enjoyed enjoyed a sumptuous lunch spread after the culinary activities! Definitely keeping the recipe very close to me for future baking plans when im home. Surprised that even at this workshop, we even had our very own certificate presentation to recognised the attendees' participation in the workshop as it came to an end. 

Blueberries, hailed as a superfood packed with antioxidants, have long been known to offer a variety of health advantages, from boosting the immune system to promoting heart health. It is one of the best options for clean, healthy food for health enthusiasts because it is low in sodium and cholesterol and high in potassium and vitamin C.

BOH Pure Green Tea's New Look and Appointed Ambassador | Azira Shafinaz

One of Malaysia's top tea growers is BOH Plantations Sdn Bhd, also known as BOH. J.A. Russell, who built the first tea garden in Malaysia's Cameron Highlands, created the business in 1929. BOH is now a household name in Malaysia and is renowned for its premium tea goods. It was such an honour to attend the Wellness in a Cup launch party at Aurum Theatre, The Gardens recently, which featured BOH Pure Green Tea.

Memories were made and I got to see the company's new packaging for its green tea products, which had a change of colour in a fresher appearance. What's even more exciting is that the product now uses sustainable resources, notably Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) materials. The packaging design has been updated with a contemporary flair.

This Pure Green Tea's natural and delicious green tea flavor is guaranteed by the use of just green tea leaves in its production. It's an excellent choice for individuals looking for a more healthy and energizing alternative beverage that stimulates the body and the mind. As a fan of BOH Green Tea, I adore how revitalized I feel after each sip.

For your information, green tea, like black, oolong, and white teas, is a variety of tea manufactured from the Camellia sinensis plant. Green tea is unique due to its lack of oxidation and minimum processing. After being plucked, the leaves are promptly roasted to prevent oxidation, which gives tea its distinctive green color and flavor profile.

1. Flavor Profile: Green tea generally has a lighter and fresher taste compared to black tea. Its flavor can range from grassy and vegetal to nutty and slightly sweet. The taste can vary based on the specific type of green tea and how it's processed.

2. Health Benefits: Green tea is often praised for its potential health benefits. It's rich in antioxidants called catechins, which are believed to have various positive effects on the body. Some studies suggest that green tea consumption may be associated with improved metabolism, weight management, cardiovascular health, and even a reduced risk of certain types of cancer.

One of the highlights of that day is to introduce and Meet & Greet with Azira Shafinaz, a new BOH Pure Green Tea Brand Ambassador, Azira Shafinaz Ramlan is a Malaysian singer, actress, and host. She is known as one of the lead singers of the Malaysian female pop group, De Fam. A huge fan of De Fam btw~

“No matter what my day demands, I know I can count on my Wellness in a Cup”
said Azira Shafinaz.

Azira also said she is not a coffee drinker, and she honestly loves Green Tea. It was a great honor for her to be BOH Green Tea's ambassador as she is fond of the products.


Corresponding to the 66th National Day Celebration month, Chef Chris of Jin Gastrobar created a drink that day to honor this month.The ingredients of this drink are very unique and mixed with BOH Pure Green Tea.
🍃 BOH green tea
🍃 Passion fruit
🍃 Assam Boi
🍃 Lemonade
🍃 Ice

It was a pretty cool beverage with amazing hints of flavours! With BOH Green Tea, it is unquestionably one of the teas that can be utilized to make a variety of mouthwatering menus. And even on that day, we enjoyed a delicious panna cotta that contained BOH Green Tea.

All invited guests were led to the Aurum Theatre Getha Lux Suite later that day. It was the first time I had ever entered this opulent room to watch a film. And guess what, that day, a nice cup of BOH Green Tea actually helped me stay warm in the theater. 

The BOH Pure Green Tea Truck will be touring a few locations in August, so everyone out there should keep an eye out for it. It will be a wonderful chance to sample green tea's lovely flavor firsthand. To learn more about this exciting development, check out
