Description

Olive Leaf Tea uses leaves from the olive tree (Olea europaea). It has a soft, mellow, herbaceous flavour and comes with a multitude of health benefits.

While many of us love a bowl of olives before a meal, this beverage tastes great whenever you have time to put the kettle on. We pack it fresh to order here in our Kent-based factory, ensuring both quality and consistency.

Olive Leaf Herbal Tea Botany and History

The olive tree belongs to the Oleaceae family. Fossil evidence suggests that it has grown in the eastern Mediterranean basin for some 40 million years.

It has since spread and naturalised throughout much of Africa and Asia. During the course of millennia, the appearance of this much-loved tree has changed little. Most recognise it for being relatively short in size. Indeed, it rarely exceeds heights of 26-49 feet.

It grows both fruits and flowers, the latter being small, white and feathery. Its fruit, meanwhile, are world famous and need little introduction.

The leaves of the tree, in comparison, have only recently received the appreciation they deserve. Before brewing for Loose Leaf Tea, they are silvery-green in colour. These olive leaves can grow to be 4-10 cm long and 1-3 centimetres wide.

Does Olive Leaf Tea Have Caffeine?

Black, Green, White and Oolong Tea all come from the same plant: Camellia sinensis. This is one of an estimated sixty plants that naturally contain caffeine.

Others include Coffea (Coffee), Theobroma cacao (chocolate) and Ilex Paraguariensis (Yerba Mate). But does Olive Leaf Herbal Tea belong to the caffeinated family? No - which makes it an excellent choice if you’re looking to cut down.

How to Make Olive Leaf Tea

1, Add Loose Leaf Tea to a Tea Infuser or Filter.

2, Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug.

3, Put the kettle on and, once boiled, pour it over the leaves.

4, Allow it to steep for 5-10 minutes.

How to Serve: Best served without additions. However, some like to have honey or lemon.

What is Olive Leaf Tea Good for?

If you’re wondering, “Can Olive Leaf Tea help constipation?” or, “Does Olive Leaf Tea work for diabetes?”, the answer, on both counts, is “yes.” The primary reason is its wealth in vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants.

These chemical compounds - particularly one called oleuropein - have anti-inflammatory properties capable of aiding digestion. They likewise balance blood sugar levels.

Olive Leaf Tea Hypertension

One of the most noteworthy features to its benefits is the fact that it combats hypertension. But how does Olive Leaf Tea reduce blood pressure?

A Swiss study has the answers. It involved 20 identical twin pairs, all of whom had high blood pressure, split into two groups - one receiving Olive Leaf Tea and the other, a placebo. The researchers concluded that one of the Olive Leaf Tea Benefits were anti-inflammatory effects.
