Is Fruit Tea Healthy?
We often get asked about our teas, but a question that keeps popping up is 'Is Fruit Tea Healthy?'. So, we thought we'd address it in this blog post and give you the answer!
So Is Fruit Tea Good For You?
Fruit tea is slightly different to 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 great 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 a bad name 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 it's 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.
What Are The Best Fruit Teas?
At Bird & Blend, we have a great selection of fruit teas but there is definitely a fan fave in the collection! Strawberry Lemonade is our best selling and award-winning fruit tea. It's blended with real strawberry chunks and zesty lemon peel and tastes just as good as it smells (not like hot water like most supermarket fruit teas!).
