Brew using boiling water and leave to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes
Mulled Wine Fruit Tisane is as indulgent as it sounds. Although it contains no alcohol, it comes with the same delicious tastes so loved in real mulled wine. When brewed, it produces a richly spicy flavour with distinct hints of cinnamon, almonds and cloves. It is a truly warming infusion best served in the middle of winter. However, you will undoubtedly love it regardless of the time of year!
It’s worth noting, too, that Mulled Wine Fruit Tisane contains no leaves from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant. As such, it isn’t technically a “Tea” at all; rather, as its name suggests, a Tisane. This also means that it’s 100% caffeine-free, thus making it an excellent choice for caffeine-sensitive individuals. Why not buy it and try it today with The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company?
Ingredients in This Tea
Mulled Wine Fruit Tisane is jam-packed with extraordinary ingredients. This includes (but is not limited to) cinnamon and cloves - both of which are popular Asian spices. The former of the two is both a spice and bark from several trees in the Cinnamomum genus of the Lauraceae family.
Trade in it began many hundreds of years ago, with Arab merchants once maintaining a monopoly over the industry.
In order to entice potential customers into a sale, these dealers once told colourful, fantastical stories about the origins of cinnamon. According to one such tale, gigantic birds “guarded” this spice high on mountain peaks - away from the people.
When local communities discovered its existence, however, they decided to lure the birds down from their perches using ox meat.
The creatures took the food back to their nests where the weight of it toppled the cinnamon down to the ground. All that was left, then, was to collect it - or so the story goes. There is, unsurprisingly, no truth to any of it.
Nevertheless, the complex flavour of cinnamon makes it the perfect addition to this brew. Then there are cloves, which are flower buds from the Syzygium aromaticum tree of the Myrtaceae family.
Cloves provide one of the most potent flavours in the world of spice, best described as strong, pungent, sweet yet slightly astringent. Some also note their warming sensation on the palate, a quality that indeed transcends upon the first sip of Mulled Wine Fruit Tisane.
And once we’ve added the likes of apple pieces, hibiscus blossoms and almonds, you have a match made in heaven!

Benefits of Mulled Wine Fruit Tisane
Cinnamon and cloves can both support your daily life in small yet significant ways. This is partly because they contain eugenol, a chemical compound with potent anti-inflammatory properties.
They can relieve gum pain, in particular, as well as other areas of inflammation. Additionally, these herbs might calm the stomach, ease nausea and combat diarrhoea.
