Description

Combining the delicious flavours of Chinese Black Tea with the rich, luxurious taste of natural apricot flavouring, Apricot Tea is a mouthwatering dessert-in-a-cup!

Apricot Tea is the perfect choice to satisfy a sweet tooth, without giving in to the temptation of a calorie-filled slice of pie! In fact, when consumed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle, this tea may even aid with the weight loss process!

The inclusion of leaves from the Camellia Sinensis plant (or, ‘tea’ plant) ensures this brew has the ability to boost the metabolism, thus allowing your body to burn fat quicker, and more efficiently. Who would have thought that something that tastes this good could be as beneficial to your waist as it is to your taste buds?

However, for those who are just looking for a new and interesting cup of tea to start off their morning, Apricot Black Tea boasts defined fruity flavours with slight malty undertones.

The concept of flavouring tea is far from a new phenomenon. Dating back almost as far as tea’s first discovery, over 5,000 years ago, leaves from the Camellia Sinensis plant have been infused with fruits, herbs, spices, and oils to complement differing personal tastes throughout China and beyond.

Almost any type of tea can be flavoured. However, Black Tea is considered the most popular, accounting for its ability to accommodate many strong, and often heavy flavours. Flavoured Green Tea, meanwhile, is usually created using delicate, subtle flavours, such as Aloe Vera. Perhaps the most famous flavoured tea is that of Earl Grey, which was first flavoured with Bergamot oil to prevent mould during transit. Even older than Earl Grey is Chai Tea, originating from the Indian subcontinent.

These Black Teas are flavoured with various herbs and spices, with no two beverages ever similar. In fact, Indian Chai Tea recipes vary from region to region; village to village; all across the country! It is now embedded into Indian culture and has since spread throughout the world. In recent years, the global tea industry has been experimenting with countless new flavours to incorporate into their respective blends. Apricot Tea is one such example, and is likewise one of our most popular flavoured black teas! 

Type of Tea: Loose Leaf Black Tea.


Ingredients: Black Leaf Tea, Natural Apricot flavouring, and Sunflower Petals.

Brewing Instructions: Brew using freshly boiled water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes.

How to Serve: Not sweet enough for your personal tastes? Indulge with the addition of honey! For boosted bitter flavours, meanwhile, consider lemon as an equally delicious accompaniment. Alternatively, we believe this beverage to be best served as it is.

Tasting Notes: Distinctively ‘Apricot’ in both flavour and aroma, this brew consists of defined sweet overtones, complemented by a rich malty aftertaste. Apricot Tea is, without a doubt, very easy drinking, and will evoke memories of wandering through vibrant and beautiful orchards on a warm summer’s day.

Colour in Cup: Coppery liquor, dark in tone.

Health Benefits: Recent studies have established correlations between the frequent consumption of Black Tea - including our very own Apricot tea - and the improvement of cognitive function. It is believed that just 3 cups of Black Tea a day have the ability to reduce the risks of dementia and Alzheimer's disease, according to research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

The Study was conducted by the University of Singapore, and saw 2,500 subjects undergo a test to measure their cognitive function. When the experiment was repeated 2 years later, results established that those who had drunk two to three cups of black tea a day during the 2 year period were 55% less likely to be subjected to cognitive decline. Meanwhile, those who had drunk six to ten cups a day were up to 63% less likely. Further to this, all Black Tea blends have been proven to improve cardiovascular health, enhance mental alertness, and even lower cholesterol.

    Alright but not really the flavour I was expecting - could be easily named Peach Tea as it tastes the same. Slightly disappointed.
