Fruit tea is slightly different from other types of tea because – well – it’s not tea. We call it Tea for convenience, but fruit tea is simply dried fruits, sometimes with spices or flowers and herbs added. It’s certainly good for you in many ways unless lots of sugar is added, which isn’t necessary but sadly low-quality tea can have lots of added rubbish which only takes from the natural flavour, leaving nothing but a sweet, bland taste.
If a fruit tea is prepared right, it should be naturally sweet and fruity, full of flavour. Dried fruit stewed in water has been consumed for centuries, it can be very refreshing and energy-boosting. Fruit tea is packed with vitamins and antioxidants and is amazing for cleansing the body of toxins and keeping the immune system strong. In that aspect, it’s very similar to tea leaves, with regard to still having high levels of health benefits.
Sadly, fruit tea has bad luck these days due to the blends you can find in supermarkets having zero flavour time and time again. Luckily, Bird & Blend Tea is here to amend its reputation with our plethora of gorgeous and flavoursome fruit blends, varied and completely natural. Even our “flavouring” you can occasionally see on our ingredients list, is simply an extraction from the fruit itself. We like to keep it all-natural, just to prove how easy it is to get great fruit tea.
Because fruit tea isn’t “tea”, one of its great assets is that: it’s caffeine-free! So it’s a great tea of you’re going caffeine-free, or to have late-afternoon, night-ish if you want a fresh but soothing cuppa!
