Description

Orange Tea is a citrusy delight to the senses. It’s the product of scenting Black Tea with orange, as well as layering it with orange peel. Every sip evokes vivid images of sitting under orange groves on warm Mediterranean evenings. Enjoy such alluring pleasures from the comfort of your home with this remarkable, flavoursome, quality-assured infusion. 

What’s more, Orange Tea boasts several extraordinary Black Tea Benefits. Indeed, decades of research into the health-promoting properties of these incredible leaves already appears immensely promising. We now know that any type of Black Tea can boost the metabolism of fat cells. This, in turn, enables the body to burn fat not only quicker but also more efficiently. 

But that’s not all. Studies have likewise established that Black Tea, including this variety, can improve cardiovascular health, aid digestion, and reduce diabetes risks. What more could you want from your morning cuppa? Well, it’s worth noting that we pack it fresh to order, too! 

About Flavoured Black Tea 

Black Tea has only existed for a few hundred years. Green Tea, in comparison, dates back to at least 2737 BCE. But what about the concept of flavouring Tea with ingredients such as fruits, herbs and spices? Regardless of whether you’re talking about Green or Black, the answer to this question is “almost immediately after its creation.”  

Upon the discovery of both of these types of Tea, people were quick to experiment with flavours. When it comes to Black Tea, in particular, however, there are two varieties worth mentioning: Earl Grey and Chai. The former originated from China while the latter came from India. 

Earl Grey is the product of mysterious circumstances, with no one knowing how it came into existence. Chai, on the other hand, has far clearer origins. A Scottish explorer named Robert Bruce found Tea growing in Assam, India, in 1823. At this time, the country was under the control of the British Raj, who wanted the locals to drink more Tea to bolster the economy. 

Controversially, the British insisted that the Indians take “Tea breaks” during work time. However, these factory employees and railway labourers were reluctant to do so without their beloved herbs and spices. Combining these ingredients into one, the Indians created Chai Tea - a Flavoured Black Tea unlike any other. And so, while Orange Tea is a new creation, its origins are undoubtedly much older.

Benefits of Drinking Orange Tea

The antioxidants in Orange Tea can combat free radicals in the body. But why, exactly, is this important? Free radicals are unpaired (and unsafe!) electrons that, when left unchecked, can cause untold damage.

Yet Orange Tea can help. By neutralising free radicals, it reduces the risk of developing a multitude of severe, chronic conditions.
