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 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! Eton Mess is a staff favourite because it reminds us of this delicious dessert but in a cup of fruit tea and healthier (always a plus)!
With summer coming, or if you like something fresh all year-round, fruit tea is also great iced or as a cold brew. It's refreshing and energising! Here are our blog posts for more information about how to make a cold brew tea and how to make an iced 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!).
