Description

Olive Leaf Tea is a Herbal Tea known for its soft, mellow, herbaceous flavour and a multitude of well-documented health benefits. While many people choose a bowl of olives before a meal, brewing the leaves as a delicious infusion is an equally excellent choice.

The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company is the best Olive Leaf Tea UK and worldwide supplier around. Discover for yourself. 

What is Olive Leaf Tea?

These Olive Tea leaves come from the tree of the same name (Olea europaea), a member of the Oleaceae family. It has flourished in the eastern Mediterranean basin for at least 40 million years, although it has since spread to Asia and Africa.

Rarely exceeding 50 feet (approx. 15 metres) high, the olive tree produces both fruits and flowers - as well as, of course, the component we use here. 

Does Olive Leaf Tea Have Caffeine?

An estimated sixty plants contain caffeine, including Tea (Camellia sinensis), Coffee (Coffea), Cacao (Chocolate; Theobroma cacao) and Yerba Mate (Ilex Paraguariensis). Is caffeine in Olive Leaf Tea a thing?

The simple answer is no; it isn’t. But that could be a good thing if you’re looking to cut down your intake, especially if you’re sensitive to its stimulating effects or are an expecting mother.

Olive Leaf Tea Health Benefits

The latest scientific evidence has established that Olive Leaf Tea Herbal Tea boasts antioxidant, antihypertensive, anti-atherogenic, anti-inflammatory and hypocholesterolemic properties.

Antioxidants, in particular, work on a molecular level to combat free radicals. Meanwhile, its antihypertensive nature reduces blood pressure, and its anti-inflammatory potential improves the skin’s vitality. 

And that’s just the beginning. According to a New Zealand study conducted at the Liggins Institute at the University of Auckland, it could reduce diabetes risks.

According to an Australian study conducted at the University of Southern Queensland, it also promotes weight loss. There is even 2014 research indicating that it enhances brain function to combat cognitive decline such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.

  2. I buy this for health reasons not for flavour, it is actually quite bitter. I usually bring to the boil and simmer for 5 mins, then refrigerate when cooled. I drink this daily and add some apple juice which makes it palatable. The caramel tea, however, is delicious!
