What makes this drink so special? Check out this compilation of facts on this excellent beverage and make it a part of your summer routine…

What is Strawberry Decaf iced tea?

The strawberry decaf tea from the Sublime House of Tea is a refreshing black tea, decaffeinated slowly to retain its flavour and mixed with the sweet succulence of natural and ripe strawberries.

How to prepare strawberry decaf iced tea

Decaffeinated tea is known for its health benefits and when you drink it in the form of iced tea, it is both cooling and deeply satisfying. But you need to make it the right way to get the fullness of the flavours.

To begin with, use on tea bag for one cup of water. Boil the water till it is hot and let the tea bag brew in the just-boiled water until fully seeped. Allow the tea to cool. Don’t add the sugar to cold tea, though. Add your sweetener when the water is boiled and the tea is steaming. This will ensure that the sugar or sweetener dissolves completely. If you want to try a combination of flavours, this is the time to add any fruity syrup you like to make it even more delicious.

Don’t keep the teabag in the tea for too long. Most tea lovers find that ten minutes is sufficient to make a flavourful glass of iced tea. Remove the tea bag and transfer the brew to the refrigerator. Let the tea cool down completely and add ice only before serving. To make this tea extra fancy and elegant, add in some bubbly with club soda or your favorite flavored seltzer. This would be the perfect drink to go with your next barbecue cookout.

Why is Strawberry Decaf good for you?

It is full of anti-oxidants

Since strawberry decaf tea is made from black tea, it contains a number of polyphenols, like catechins, theaflavins and thearubigins. These antioxidants will promote overall health and the Theaflavins in the tea will reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Sipping on black tea that is rich in antioxidants may help decrease the risk of chronic disease and improve your overall health.

It improves heart health

Drinking black tea can also improve heart health, due to the flavones that are present in the beverage. Studies and research done by scientists now find that drinking three cups of black tea per day (even in decaf form) can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

It protects the body

New research shows that the potential health benefits of regularly consuming black tea leads to a lower risk of certain cancers and osteoporosis, due to the polyphenols it provides. Polyphenols help protect our body by preventing cell damage, supporting the immune system and fighting inflammation, among other benefits.

It can lower the risk of diabetes

Elevated blood sugar levels in your body due to excessive consumption of sugar can may increase your risk of health complications, such as type 2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and kidney failure. But drinking black tea can help lower the risk of Type 2 diabetes as the catechins and theaflavins in black tea help make the body more insulin sensitive and prevents beta cell dysfunction.

It can protect your gut

A healthy gut can shield you from various stomach problems. Consuming black tea can help improve the count and variety of good gut microbes. Scientists have discovered that the polyphenols in black tea can act as a prebiotic, which can increase good gut bacteria. Polyphenols can also reduce the growth of other harmful bacteria in the gut. Decaf tea can also reduce stomach ulcers and go a long way in preventing colorectal, esophageal and stomach cancers. So, make yourself a glass of strawberry decaf iced tea and enjoy a cool, beautiful and healthy summer
