Facts About This Blend
China is the home of Tea. It was here, some 5,000 years ago, that, according to legend, a Chinese Emperor discovered the leaves.
Sri Lanka (formerly known as Ceylon) has produced Tea since the colonial era. It was a Scotsman named James Taylor who first began making Black Ceylon Tea commercially during the 1800s.
The black cherry tree (Prunus serotina) is native to North America. The wood itself has long been admired and used by carpenters and cabinet makers.
Dark chocolate is a powerful source of antioxidants. These chemical compounds can combat free radicals in the body, reducing the risk of developing several chronic conditions.
Does This Tea Have Caffeine?
There are around 60 plants in the wild that naturally contain caffeine. This includes the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant, the Coffea (Coffee) plant and the Theobroma cacao tree - the beans of which make chocolate.
Our Black Cherry and Dark Chocolate Tea has two of these three ingredients blended into it. As a result, you can expect approximately 40-mg of caffeine per 8-oz cup.
Some will see this as a benefit of sorts. After all, many people buy Flavoured Black Tea for its caffeinated boost first thing in the morning. If, however, you’re looking to cut down on your intake, you might be better off opting for a Decaf Tea or Coffee.
Most drinkers, though, brew up our Black Cherry and Dark Chocolate Tea because, put simply, it tastes great.

Is Black Cherry and Dark Chocolate Tea Good for You
Preliminary evidence suggests that habitual Tea drinking, which includes consuming this beverage, could support a longer, healthier life!
This is according to a study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, which saw 100,902 participants split into two groups. The first group was comprised of volunteers who drank three or more cups of Tea a week. The second group, meanwhile, included those who drank less than three brews a week.
Both sets of test subjects were followed-up for a median of 7.3 years, the results ultimately establishing that 50-year-old habitual Tea drinkers had a 20% lower risk of developing coronary heart disease.
Additionally, scientists noted that these same brew lovers could live up to 1.26 years longer than someone who never or rarely drank Tea.
