Brew using boiling water and leave to infuse for 5 to 10 minutes
Passion Fruit and Orange Fruit Tisane is a type of Tisane Tea. The name says it all: it contains real passionfruit and orange pieces, along with apple, hibiscus and rosehips. Low in calories and bold in taste, this infusion offers sweet, citrusy notes and tart undertones with every sip.
We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory, thus ensuring quality and consistency.
It’s worth noting, too, that Passion Fruit and Orange Fruit Tisane is 100% void of caffeine. This is because it contains no leaves from the Camellia sinensis (Tea) plant and, as such, it isn’t technically a “Tea” at all.
What it is, then, is a delicious Fruit Tisane brimming with character. Enjoy it as a steaming hot brew in the winter or a cooling Iced Tea in the summer.

Benefits of Passion Fruit and Orange Fruit Tisane
The Hibiscus in this Tea might lower blood pressure, thus improving heart health. This is because of its anti-inflammatory properties.
The answers come from a study conducted by the American Heart Association. It saw 65 participants aged between 30-70, all of whom were recognised as “at-risk” from high blood pressure, split into two groups.
The first group of participants consumed Hibiscus three times a day, while the second group received a placebo.
After six weeks, the results determined that the Hibiscus Group “showed an average fall of 7.2 percent in blood pressure, with some recording a 13.2 percent drop. The placebo group, in comparison, recorded a 1.3 percent drop”. Pretty neat for your morning brew, wouldn’t you agree?
