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, petals or leaves of a wide range of fruits and are naturally caffeine free. They offer a very different tea-tasting experience to traditional teas.
One of the key features of fruit tea is that is can be served hot or cold, depending on your preference. It is the perfect drink for children and they can explore a wide range of flavours and tastes without any added sugar.
In the summer months, fruit teas can be used as a fantastic cooler, providing refreshment and flavour in abundance.
In winter months, you may decide to turn to the warming effects of a seasonally spiced tea.
How fruit tea is Produced
Fruit tea is made by grating or cutting the chosen fruits into small pieces and drying them.
The teas are produced blending a variation of dried fruits together, some contain up to 9 or 10 different ingredients.
The skill in blending the mix is to achieve a good balanced manner to create the perfect taste experience.
Hot water extracts the flavour of the fruit but it will require a far longer brewing time than traditional tea to reach the best taste result.
Benefits of fruit tea
One of the main benefits of drinking fruit tea is that they contain high levels of antioxidants.

It is also worth noting that fruit teas are an especially suitable drink for children as they contain no added sugar and they are extremely tasty.
On top of this, drinking fruit tea is a relaxing and tasteful experience. We think everybody should benefit from 5 indulgent minutes ever now and then!
