Brew with fresh boiling water and infuse for 3 to 5 minutes
Nothing says summer more than strawberries. But why not enjoy that same flavour year-round with our very own Strawberry Tea? No longer a seasonal pleasure, Strawberry Tea offers irresistibly scrumptious berry flavours combined with a blend of China Black and Ceylon Tea, as well as beautiful flower blossoms.
It has a rich, summery taste and an enticingly fruity aroma. But that’s not all. Modern science has long associated the frequent consumption of Tea, regardless of type, with the improvement of everyday life in a manner of ways. When it comes to Flavoured Black Teas, such as Strawberry Tea, potential health benefits include improved cardiovascular health, reduced risks of type-2 diabetes, enhanced cognitive function and a boosted metabolism.
What more could you possibly want from your morning cup of Tea? Well, there are of course other health benefits, most notably, although studies are preliminary, the potential to reduce the risks of developing certain types of cancer. We await further research before making any bold claims, but in the meantime, it's guaranteed to satisfy the taste buds.
But how long has Tea been drunk for health reasons, anyway? While this loose Tea may be a new invention, Tea as a whole is not. And neither is consuming Tea for its alleged health benefits. In fact, the first records of Tea consumption for the purse of health benefits date to the late 8th Century.
It was published in a book entitled “Ch’a Ching” (Tea Classic), written by the renowned writer of his time, Lu Yu. Despite the information in the publication being limited to, predominantly, holistic healing, it marked the beginning of an exciting journey, one still growing and developing today. Over the course of many centuries, Lu Yu’s legacy gave rise to hundreds of publications on how Tea could offer health benefits in Chinese society. It spread quickly, and as trade grow throughout Asia and beyond, so too did knowledge of the health benefits of Tea.
We know now that all Teas, regardless of the Type of Tea and regardless of whether they are flavoured or unflavoured, can lead to the improvement of a vast number of ailments. But what can Strawberry Tea do for you personally? Read our Health Benefits section below and find out.

In 2015, for example, a meta-analysis found that drinking a cup of Tea a day (no matter the type) reduced the risks of developing cancer by 2%. Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had up to a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none. We are cautious to endorse the consumption of our Strawberry Tea, or any Tea, for the reduced risks of developing cancer; however, we are supportive of ongoing research.
