Blueberry Tea is as light and uplifting as it sounds. Most of all, it tastes great. Better still, it has extraordinary health benefits. In other words, there is nothing not to like about Blueberry Tea, a flavoured China Black Tea containing an ingredient long touted as a “super fruit” owing to its abundance of antioxidants.
When consumed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle, our Blueberry Tea, among other Black Teas, can boost the metabolism, helping the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently, thus aiding in weight loss. Furthermore, preliminary studies have suggested that the frequent consumption of Black Tea can reduce the risks of developing type-2 diabetes, as well as certain types of cancer.
And if that wasn’t enough, Blueberry Tea improves cardiovascular health by lowering “bad” LDL cholesterol. It can also enhance cognitive function and support immune system health. Today, health-conscious consumers are exploring the possibilities of frequent Tea consumption for the improvement of everyday life.
But if you do not fall into the “health-conscious” category, or more likely, you are simply choosing Tea for its taste over anything else, then our Blueberry Tea will never cease to surprise the palate, delivering a refreshingly fruity punch with every sip.
Blueberries are “in fashion”. And for many good reasons, too. These berries grow in clusters on shrubby bushes, often ranging in size and shape. Although some grow here in the UK, the majority of blueberries are imported. Most imported blueberries are cultivated, meaning they often taste sweeter than those grown in the wild, which are tart in flavour. Perhaps most importantly, however, blueberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C, which is crucial to the support of the immune system.
Furthermore, blueberries are high in fibre, which can slow down the rate at which sugar is released into the bloodstream, which in turn maintains digestive system health. Ultimately, there are many health benefits to the frequent consumption of blueberries. But what about Blueberry Tea? For that, we recommend you read our Health Benefits section below.
Type of Tea: Loose Leaf Black Tea.
Brewing Instructions: Brew using freshly boiled water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes.

Colour in Cup: Ruby liquor, dark in tone.
Health Benefits: With Blueberry Tea, it is not the blueberry flavouring capable of improving your everyday way of life, no. In fact, it is the Black Tea leaves themselves, which contain two particularly unique antioxidants called theaflavin and thearubigin. Both antioxidants can neutralise free radicals in the body, which are the product of natural, though harmful, human oxidation.
In doing so, Blueberry Tea can keep a multitude of chronic conditions at bay, so long as one eats healthily and frequently exercises alongside the consumption of the Tea. It is important to note that drinking Tea alone will not work. It must be enjoyed as part of a healthy and active lifestyle. But again, so long as these measures are in place, science has proven the health-promoting potential of Black Tea consumption, be it flavoured or unflavoured.
In 2015, for example, a meta-analysis found that drinking a cup of Tea a day (no matter the type) reduced the risks of developing cancer by 2%. Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had up to a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none. We are cautious to endorse the consumption of our Blueberry Tea, or any Tea, for the reduced risks of developing cancer; however, we are supportive of ongoing research.
