Brew using boiling water and leave to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes
Cherry Compote Fruit Tea is a strong, full-bodied infusion packed with an unmistakably fruity punch. It blends the indulgent aromas and flavours of cherries with those of raspberries and bananas to create a match made in heaven.
Other ingredients include apple pieces, sultanas, elderberries, coconut pieces and rose petals, all of which have something unique, indeed extraordinary, to offer.
One component notably missing is that of “real” Tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant. This means that Cherry Compote Fruit Tea is 100% caffeine-free, thus making it an excellent choice for those looking to cut down.
Additionally, it is a great alternative to sugary, fatty soft drinks without sacrificing on taste. We pack it fresh to order here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company.
Fruit Tisanes - All You Need to Know
The term “Fruit Tisane” possibly comes from the Greek word, “ptisanē.” This refers to an infusion made from crushed grains of pearl barley. Another theory is that the French coined it, combining variations of the words “Ti” (Tea) and “Sans” (French for “without”).
The third and final idea is that it involves the French “Ti” and the Latin “Sine” (also meaning “without”) to make “Tea without Tea.”
Historically, people consumed such beverages long before the discovery of what we today know as real Tea. They eventually played a small yet significant role in the American Revolution (1775-1783), whereby colonists chose to drink brewed fruits instead of the quintessentially British cuppa.
Centuries later, in 1904, an American entrepreneur popularised Iced Tea, which soon after used Fruit Tea as a base.
Our Cherry Compote Fruit Tea is indeed well-served as a cooling, refreshing beverage during the summer months. Yet it makes for a warming, nourishing brew in the dead of winter, too.
The bottom line is that you will undoubtedly love it regardless of when or where. Why not discover its full potential today? We guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Cherry Compote Fruit Tea Benefits
This Fruit Tisane, contrary to popular belief, can support your health and wellbeing in a few ways.
Although it lacks the antioxidant strength of some beverages, it does, at the very least, have enough to make a small difference.
Antioxidants combat free radicals in the body, the product of natural, though harmful, oxidation. This ultimately reduces the risk of developing numerous chronic conditions.
