Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Apricot Tea is a Flavoured Loose Leaf Chinese Black Tea. It has a rich, luxurious taste best described as sweet and fruity with a subtle malty finish. We add sunflower petals to the blend to make it as beautiful as it is delicious.
Perhaps best of all is the fact that we pack it fresh to order. This is our way of ensuring not only quality but also consistency. What’s not to like?
Does Apricot Tea Have Caffeine?
It might have a flavour unmistakably similar to apricots. Still, it is the Black Tea leaves that are most important when it comes to caffeine.
Black Tea comes from the same plant as all “real” Tea, including Green, White and Oolong. Each one contains varying levels of caffeine. Black Tea, in particular, has around 45-mg of this stimulant per 8-oz cup - more than enough to provide an energy boost.
The Story Behind Apricot Black Tea
Apricot Tea benefits the mind, body and soul in a plethora of ways. But where did it begin? The truth is there isn’t one single origin story.
Countless people in China, Central Asia and, eventually, around the world almost certainly experimented with apricots and Tea millennia ago. The Apricot Flavoured Black Tea we know and love today, then, is the product of many stories.

Apricot Leaf Tea Benefits
Did you know that the benefits of Apricot Tea extend to a whole host of common ailments, including type-2 diabetes and even, potentially, cancer? The reason is its ability to combat free radicals in the body, which slows down the natural, though often harmful, process of oxidation.
In other words, it works on a molecular level to reduce the risk of developing numerous chronic conditions.
But even that’s not all Apricot Leaf Tea benefits can do. According to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Apricot Tea boosts immunity.
The evidence found that Black Tea, regardless of the type, promoted the body’s defences against infection while priming the immune system to attack invading bacteria, viruses and fungi.
And then there’s the possibility of it enhancing brain function. This is according to a study conducted by the University of Singapore, which saw 2,500 participants undergo a test to measure their cognitive function.
The experiment was repeated two years later. Ultimately, the conclusion was that those who drank two to three cups daily had a 55% lower chance of experiencing cognitive decline.
