Description

Whether it’s the festive season or not, Christmas Tea Tisane is a delicious beverage bound to get even the grumpiest of grinches into the spirit of things. This Tisane is for the adventurous, the ones who want to start their Christmas off with a bang. Perfect for parties and family gatherings, brewing up a pot of this fruity infusion will keep the festivities going well into the night.

If, like many, you don’t want the season of giving to end, then keep its spirit alive all year-round with Christmas Tea Tisane. With ingredients such as hibiscus, apple pieces, and clove oil, among others, the health benefits of this delightful brew are simple: to afford an improved sense of peace and tranquillity in a turbulent world of uncertainty. Christmas is a time for family, for love, for kindness and generosity; our Christmas Tea Tisane holds dear those values and reminds us that the greatest pleasures in life come from togetherness. And ultimately, what brings people together more than a simple pot of tea?

While filled with festive fun, Christmas Tea Tisane, particularly its inclusion of clove oil, takes a page out of the book of Chai Tea, a beverage known and loved throughout India and beyond. Interestingly, both cinnamon and cloves come from the same Syzygium aromaticum tree; however, while cinnamon is inner tree bark, cloves are actually flower buds. Cloves are strong, pungent, sweet, yet also astringent, and offer a warming sensation to the palate.

They are a common ingredient found in Chai Teas and were used before even tea leaves were added to these aromatic beverages! Over 9,000 years ago, historians suggest, Chai Teas of a herbal nature were called “Kadhas”, an essentially Ayurvedic decoction made with a multitude of herbs and spices including, naturally, cloves. And when it came to Ayurvedic Medicine, a form of holistic healing, cloves were used to balance the “Vata” and “Pitta” Doshas in the body (see: Ayurveda Teas).

But now, let’s talk about Fruit Tisanes and why Christmas Tea Tisane should be at the top of your list to Santa; for that, we must move away from India and travel 8,500 miles to America, the unofficial home of Fruit Teas. Fruit Teas became popular in America when the country wasn’t yet a country, during a time when the landmass was under the rule of the British Empire and while Great Britain imposed extortionate taxes on tea importation on its colonial citizens.

A feeling of anger, frustration and, most of all, misrepresentation was rife in the American colonies in 1773 when a group of demonstrators boarded three vessels in the Boston Harbor and dumped 342 chests of tea into the water below. The event played a vital role years later when the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783) broke out; however, it likewise affected greatly the availability of tea in the soon-to-be United States of America. Alternatives were needed to quench the first of avid tea drinkers from Boston to Baltimore; Philadelphia to New York City, and in time Fruit Teas, the ingredients of which could be found growing in great abundance across the land, were “adopted” as a replacement to “regular” brewed tea leaves.

Today, there are hundreds if not thousands of different Fruit Tea blends with Christmas Tea Tisane being just one of many. But we believe it is special; we believe it has something more to offer than your average Fruit Tisane. Put simply: Christmas Tea Tisane is, despite the name, not just for Christmas; it is for times when nothing else will do but to sit down on the sofa with a nice, hot cup of your favourite brew and enjoy the smaller things in life. So, what are you waiting for? Try our Christmas Tea Tisane Today no matter the season.

Health Benefits: Though not as substantial in its health-promoting capabilities compared to a standalone Hibiscus Tea, Christmas Tea Tisane does also contain hibiscus and as a result, can lower blood pressure. One study, conducted by the American Heart Association (AHA) has the answers. The research project saw sixty-five people aged between 30 to 70, all of whom were considered “at risk” from high blood pressure, split into two groups. The first group of participants consumed Hibiscus Tea three times a day, while the second group was given a placebo. After a six week period, the results determined that the Hibiscus Group “showed an average fall of 7.2 percent in blood pressure, with some recording a 13.2 percent drop. The placebo group, in comparison, recorded a 1.3 percent drop”.

    Один из самых лучших красных чаёв с изумительным пряным ароматом со сладким, но с остринкой вкусом. Действительно, очень напоминает глитвейн.

    This is what I would call the equivalent of a non alcoholic mulled wine tea. It is great. It has a good spicey flavour. Very festive.

    I wished I had bought a larger packet as it is very nice and far superior to any other fruit infusion I have tried
