Is there anything more quintessentially British than a cup of Tea and a bowl of apple crumble. That is why we have made Apple Crumble Fruit Tisane, a beverage that combines two British classics into one! The taste of this Tea is second to none; heavenly sweet baked apple and cinnamon notes topped off with roasted, caramelised almonds.
It makes a nourishing hot brew in the dead of winter or a cool, refreshing Iced Tea in the midst of summer. Better still, enjoying Apple Crumble Fruit Tisane, with its scrumptious dessert-like flavours, may just help you to avoid sugary treats. Maybe, just maybe, you can put down that last slice of Apple Crumble and instead pick up a packet of Apple Crumble Fruit Tisane.

It is important to note, however, that Apple Crumble Fruit Tisane is not a “Tea” in the most literal sense. It contains no leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant, meaning it is technically a “tisane”. That goes for all Fruit Tisanes, as well as Herbal Teas. Anything beverage void of Tea leaves is a “tisane” by rights, although the term is seldom used. As far as we’re concerned here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, our Apple Crumble Fruit Tisane is, and always will be, an honourary Tea.
The inspiration for this Tea came after thousands of years of tisane-drinking. The concept is far from a new idea, and in fact, most likely pre-dates the consumption of “regular” Tea! Fruit and Herbal Teas saw a dramatic increase in popularity during the 18th Century, particularly in Colonial America. The 1773 Boston Tea party played a significant role in the rise of tisane-drinking as it saw disgruntled colonists, then British subjects, dress up as Native Americans and dump hundreds of chests of Green Tea in the Boston Harbour in protest of high Tea taxes.
This was one of the sparks that led to the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783), during which time British blockades surrounding the soon-to-be-United States of America led to a Tea shortage. The answer was simple: brew up ingredients readily available across America. Herbal and Fruit Teas, for a while, became known as “Freedom Teas”.
After the war, Herbal and Fruit Teas were here to stay. Our Apple Crumble Fruit Tisane is one such example, one of the hundreds if not thousands of Fruit Teas currently available on the market. We cater to many, Apple Crumble Fruit Tisane being one of our personal favourites.
