Description

Sir Stuart Black and Green Tea is a Flavoured Tea. As the name indicates, it is a combination of Tea Leaves from both Green and Black Tea as the base ingredients. We then add Ginger Root, Fennel, Cardamom Seeds, Rose Petals, Cornflower Blossoms and All-Natural Flavouring.

Embrace a citrusy and floral fusion of flavour from start to finish when you buy from The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. 

Who is Stuart Cleary?

This Loose Tea was dubbed “Sir Stuart” in honour of Stuart Cleary, a dear friend of our family-run business’ owner, Richard Smith. Following a trip to the East, Stuart discovered many of the unique foods and flavours of the Orient.

These we’ve utilised in the making of our Sir Stuart Black and Green Tea Blend. But what are the stories behind such remarkable and exotic ingredients? 

Ingredients in the Blend

Cardamom derives from the seeds of numerous plants in the Elettaria and Amomum genera. Belonging to the Zingiberaceae family and, as a result, a relative of Ginger Root Tea, it is one of the oldest known spices in the world.

Meanwhile, the consumption of Ginger Root itself dates back some 5,000 years, around the same time people began drinking Tea. You can now enjoy them together. 

Caffeine Levels in the Tea

Neither Cardamom nor Ginger Tea contains caffeine, a stimulating chemical compound famous for providing an energy boost. However, Tea leaves do have the chemical compound within them - both Green and Black.

While the former type boasts about 30-mg per serving, the latter has an estimated 45-mg in an 8-oz cup. In other words, you can start your day the right way here. 

Brewing Instructions

  1. Add five grams of Loose Tea to a Tea Filter or Infuser.

  2. Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug of your choice.

  3. Pour in freshly boiled water left cool to temperatures between 70°C and 90°C.

  4. Allow it to steep for 2-3 minutes. 

How to Serve: Consider honey or lemon. Alternatively, serve black. 

Tasting Notes: Imparts a spicy, floral and fruity fusion of flavour.

Well-Documented Health Benefits

A wealth of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants exist in Green and Black Tea. In particular, Green Tea’s epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) content has remarkable potential to neutralise free radicals in the body.

Doing so slows oxidative stress and ultimately reduces the risk of developing a multitude of chronic conditions, including cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes and certain varieties of cancer.

  4. Second time getting this one, it is beautiful. Like a super-light earl grey, but manages to add rose and ginger and other lovely things without becoming a weird mess of flavours! One of my favourite teas ever.
