That same beauty indeed applies to this delectable infusion. It consists of a long, slightly curled leaf flavoured with fresh passion fruit, aronia berries, mango cubes and rose petals. A true delight to the senses!
This beverage also boasts a wealth of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants. These chemical compounds contribute to your daily nutritional intake.
Best of all, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company pack Oolong Shalimar, like all of our Loose Teas, fresh to order. This is our way of guaranteeing both quality and consistency with every cuppa brewed.
About Oolong Shalimar Tea
Oolong, in many respects, is the “in-between” Tea. This refers to its processing, which is “more” than Green Tea and “less” than Black Tea. In other words, it sits in the middle in terms of its profile, taste and character.
However, less than 2% of the world’s Tea drinkers choose Oolong - despite its unmistakable allure. Indeed despite everything it has to offer.
When it comes to Oolong Shalimar Tea, it is even more of a rarity. This is in part due to it containing aronia berries, a seldom-used ingredient at the best of times.
Also known as chokeberries, these are a genus of deciduous shrubs belonging to the Rosaceae family. Health-conscious individuals, in particular, have long flocked to them owing to their potential medicinal qualities.
Another beneficial ingredient found in Oolong Shalimar Tea is rose petals tea. These come from the perennial flowering plant botanically known as Rosa, a member of the Rosaceae family.
Boasting an abundance in Vitamin C, rose petals make for an excellent choice to boost the immune system. What’s more, and perhaps more importantly, they taste great when added to this fragrant infusion!
