Sublime House of Tea


With the advent of summer, there are the simple pleasures of longer days, brighter sunsets and glorious weather. How about taking this summer to the next level of enjoyment with a cup of beautiful Strawberry Decaf tea?

The health benefits of decaf teas are widely known and when it contains all the goodness of black tea, it becomes a super beverage in more ways than one. The Decaf Strawberry is a tea that is decaffeinated slowly so as to retain the flavour of the tea, and then mixed with ripe and succulent strawberries to give it the kind of taste you can never forget.

Why is this tea so good for you? Read on to find out, in our compilation of facts that will show you how unique and wonderful this tea is.

It is good for heart health

The properties of black tea are known to improve heart health in many ways, especially due to the flavones that are present in the tea. You don’t need to worry if the tea is decaffeinated as both decaffeinated and regular teas are rich in natural phytonutrients called flavonoids that have many health benefits.

Most of the benefits you get from drinking tea comes from the antioxidants you receive from it. Antioxidants give the free radicals that are produced by your body’s metabolism a place to safely offload the electrical charge they get through allowing your cells to produce energy. Otherwise they would attack your body in unimaginable ways. If you do not consume enough antioxidants, your overall health could suffer.

It lowers the risk of diabetes

A new study has found that black tea significantly reduces rises in blood glucose levels among both healthy and pre-diabetic adults, in this case after consuming a sugary drink. The data from this study confirmed that polyphenols lower the glycemic response and may be responsible for the lower rates of diabetes observed with tea consumption. Other studies over the years have shown that in addition to lowering blood sugar, black tea has antiviral properties, anticancer properties, and it improves cardiovascular function to a remarkable degree.

It offers stress-relief

A cup of Decaf Strawberry tea can be very relaxing and can soothe the body during times of high stress. New scientific evidence shows that people who drink tea, especially black tea, four times a day for six weeks were found to have lower levels of the stress hormone, cortisol in their bodies. And since strawberries are known to combat stress by lowering blood pressure and cortisol, you get a double whammy of goodness when you drink a cup of Decaf Strawberry

It boosts the immunity of the body

Since this tea is full of antioxidants which will scavenge free oxygen radicals, which can obstruct normal functions of the body. It can help flush out the oxygen radicals and thereby boost your immunity too.

It improves your gut health

A healthy gut can prevent a number of diseases that can attack the body. Black tea improves the count and variety of good gut microbes. Scientists believe that the polyphenols in the tea act as prebiotics, which helps increase the good bacteria as they consume prebiotics as fuel. These polyphenols can also prevent the growth of other harmful bacteria in the gut. This is why this tea can also help reduce stomach ulcers and other gut problems.

All in all, Decaf Strawberry tea is packed with all the ingredients of good health and well-being. Enjoy the beverage to enjoy a wealth of benefits and a cup of great flavour too.

The source and origin

Where did this heavenly tea originate? The only teas consumed in ancient China were the green teas and the oolong or semi-oxidized tea. According to some legends and historical narratives, when an army took shelter in tea factory in the Fujian province, the production in the factory was held up. The tea was left out for much longer and they became more oxidized and this resulted in a crop of darker tea leaves. They dried these tea leaves by smoking them over pine wood, thereby creating the first ever black teas in the world.

The first black tea was the Lapsang Souchong—Lapsang meaning high mountains and Souchong meaning small leaves of the tea tree. The British and Dutch traders named it ‘black tea’ when they brought it back to Europe and England. Today, black tea is grown in China and in India also. Black tea is known to retain its flavour for several years. It is stronger in taste, more delicious than other teas and is arguably, one of the most popular teas in the world.

What makes strawberry decaf special?

While black tea is produced by oxidizing the leaf of the plant, Camelia sinensis, the decaf tea contains absolutely no caffeine. The decaffeination process removes not only caffeine, but also polyphenols and some antioxidants, but that does not mean that decaf tea is not healthy. It is rich in all the other benefits of black tea, like boosting your heart health, lowering the risk of diabetes, increasing immunity levels in the body and keeping your digestive system healthy. What’s more, it contains the rich flavour of ripe and juicy strawberries. It is said that the strawberry was first cultivated in Rome and was Emperor Nero’s favourite fruit, and ever since has become one of the world’s most loved fruits. As it does not contain caffeine, the tea can be enjoyed at any time of the day, either as an afternoon pick-me-up or an evening de-stressor.

Good for all seasons

Decaf strawberry tea is perfect as a fresh and rejuvenating during hot summer days. It can be sipped with ice on a sunny morning when you need to feel cooler and when the weather changes by evening, warm the tea to enjoy a hot beverage.

The Decaf strawberry Tea comes in pyramid tea bags, woven out of silk or nylon threads which allow beautiful infusions of the brew in a teacup. It offers optimum flavour, colour and taste and you feel like you are drinking a fruit, instead of eating it

Many people experience an energy boost when they have a cup of Strawberry Decaf tea, and it is so much better than sugary drinks and juices that sap your energy and make you feel more tired by the end of the day. Make Strawberry Decaf tea a part of your diet to enjoy its many textures and flavours and also to reap its benefits all year round.

Women’s Day was first launched on February 28, 1909 in New York and it was suggested that a Women’s Day should be held annually.

You’d think that with a name like English Breakfast Tea, the tea blend would be strictly made to accompany breakfast. While it is true that this tea would complement a complete breakfast layout beautifully, there’s no compulsion to stick to drinking it with breakfast. The blend is a real ‘wake me up’, which is useful for when you’re starting your day, but you can sip on a cup of this beverage at any time you require a quick refresh of your mental state.

If you haven’t, it can be quite life changing.

What kind of foods can you pair English Breakfast Tea with?

Since this blend is essentially black tea, it has a more pronounced flavour and aroma. This works like a dream with foods that are similar in terms of flavour. Rich meaty meals are great to down with English Breakfast Tea. Indian dishes, so full of life with the variety of spices and rich ingredients, or even the traditional English breakfast go very well with this blend.

It’s not necessary to pair your tea with only a full meal or high tea nibbles. Desserts and even cheese are a highly recommended option with black tea.

Milk or No Milk?

This is probably the best part about English Breakfast Tea. Since it’s a black tea, it can be had with or without milk. Either way, it’ll still retain its rich and robust flavour. If tea is your beverage with something to eat, especially at tea time, adding a splash of milk to your tea would make it more enjoyable. But if it’s going to be your morning tea, we’d say it’s better to be healthy, wealthy and wise, and go for a nice cup of black tea with a dash or a spoon of organic honey.
