Fruit Teas

What makes a fruit tea really tasty?
The simple answer is real fruit.

Fruit teas are conventionally made from unprocessed fruits. Our teas contain no artificial flavours and offer only the highest quality ingredients and fruit juice concentrates. They are naturally sweet but do not have the overpowering sweetness of sugar. Fruit Tea is made by cutting or grating the chosen fruits into small pieces and then drying them. The teas are produced by blending a variety of dried fruits, and some contain up to ten different ingredients. The skill in blending the mix is to achieve the right balance and the perfect taste experience.

Fruit teas are made using a wide variety of fruits including pieces of apple, hibiscus, rosehip, strawberry, raspberry, cherry, blueberry and many more. Apple, rosehip and hibiscus are probably the most used components in fruit teas. Hibiscus offers a fruity tart note and a deep red colour, like our Hibiscus Blossoms Tea.

 

Fruit Teas Vs Traditional Teas

Traditional teas, such as black tea come from the Camellia Sinensis plant and naturally contain caffeine. Fruit teas however come from the peel, roots, petal or leaves from a wide range of fruits and are naturally caffeine free. They offer a very different tea tasting experience to traditional teas. One of the great features of fruit teas is they can be served hot or cold.

 

Benefits of Fruit Tea

Often, we can feel sluggish midday, and our first reaction is to grab coffee or unhealthy sugary snack. This isn’t ideal to try to fight the slump with unhealthy choices. Fruit teas are packed with flavour and will satisfy your sweet tooth cravings. All fruit tea will help you consume the necessary water intake throughout your day. Not only are fruit teas ultra-hydrating, but they will not dehydrate you like coffee does.

One of the main benefits of drinking fruit tea is that they contain high levels of antioxidants. These antioxidants possess a wide range of health benefits including the strengthening of the immune system, improved complexion, reducing the effects of aging and more. Fruit Tea is often high in Vitamin C which comes with a number of benefits such as regulating blood pressure, a healthier heart and more. We also believe drinking fruit tea is a relaxing and tasteful experience. We believe everyone can enjoy the wonderful tastes and experience of drinking fruit teas.

 

 

Key Fruits

Apple - Dried apple is one of the key ingredients in fruit teas. It acts as a sweet yet tart baseline which works in harmony with almost all other components. Our teas contain real apple pieces which are air-dried then blended, creating a flavoursome background. 

Hibiscus - Hibiscus is yet another key baseline ingredient in many fruit teas. Created from the flower's calyces, when brewed, the infusion omits a deep red colour and a sour cranberry-like flavour. Hibiscus is now being researched, and initial tests suggest that because it is packed with antioxidants, it may lead to lowering of blood pressure, aid in weight loss and had bacteria-fighting properties.

Rosehip - Originating from the rosacea family, rosehips are the little bulbous red fruits that remain after the rosehip bush has finished flowering. Renowned in the countries it grows, it is jampacked full antioxidants with the presence of vitamin C, flavonoids, carotenoids, polyphenols, catechins and other phytochemicals. The flavour is mild, sweet and aromatic, and works in harmony with other ingredients.

 

 

Kids

Fruit teas can be an excellent drink for children as they can experience a wide range of flavours without any added sugar. Fruit teas can replace squash, pop and other sugary drinks and sweetened with honey if necessary.

How to Brew Fruit Tea Infusions

One of the most important aspects of brewing fruit teas is giving the brew enough time to infuse. Brewing time is typically 8 to 10 minutes, and please trust us when we say it's worth the wait!

  • Boil fresh filtered water
  • Place your fruit infusion in a tea strainer, infuser or teapot. Allow a heaped teaspoon per cup.
  • Pour the freshly boiled hot water over the tea
  • Steep the tea for 8-10 minutes
  • Strain the tea
  • Serve

 

All of our fruit tea infusion are delicious served either hot or cold. For a cold brew, leave to cool completely and serve as iced fruit tea with ice and if it's a special occasion, a dash of gin!
