There’s a very small percentage of oolong tea made in the world, but the demand for this tea has increased with its popularity. The difference between oolong, in both taste and aroma, and other teas lies in how the leaves are processed, which lends these delicate, curled-in leaves their unique flavour. It also results in oolong being the perfect medicine for a range of health issues.

Oolong tea contains antioxidants called polyphenols, which are known for their ability to fight diseases such as cancer and heart diseases. For those who go out of their way to maintain good health, your routine is incomplete without at least one cup of Oolong every day.

Some of the most immediate and basic benefits of Oolong tea are listed below.

Skin

Skin care is crucial in your beauty regime. We always have a range of products to help keep our skin in good condition. However, what we take into our body plays a very crucial role in the appearance of our skin. Oolong tea is much higher in antioxidants than black or green tea. This would mean that consuming a cup of oolong a day will have amazing results on our overall health, which will eventually impact our skin. Introducing oolong to your daily diet will give you nothing less than beautiful, glowing skin.

Bones and Teeth

Oolong tea is high in minerals that help maintain bone and teeth health. People with osteoporosis would find this piece of news to be a big relief. Consuming oolong can help increase the mineral density in bones. The longer you consume the tea, the longer your bones remain healthy.
Stress and Alertness

Stress and Alertness

Oolong can have a positive effect on your mood, attention and overall brain function, which is a result of the caffeine and theanine content in the tea. Any working individual today would know the effects of long and tiring days. Staying alert and focused is a task, but you can take care of this issue with a cup of oolong. Its calming effect allows one to effectively rejuvenate and face long days.

Weight and Digestion

Drinking a cup of oolong a day can increase metabolism and, therefore, have very good results when it comes to losing weight. It also helps increase immunity and fights obesity. As it is partially oxidised, oolong successfully restores its antioxidant properties and is helpful in lowering lipid. It is not new that tea, specifically black and green tea, has its benefits and is a healthy addition to our diet. With oolong, we get a beverage that is more effective, making it a great drink for those who want an easy and good way to say fit and healthy.

This time around, pack a pot of Strawberry Decaf to brighten up your day.

When you inhale a cup of strawberry tea, it is like stepping into a fresh, aromatic heaven. The scent is so vibrant, it will energize you instantly and take you to a state of complete wellbeing. Check out why it is so special in our compilation of all the facts of this glorious tea.

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. But it became a part of our calendar, only after it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations. In some countries, it is a national holiday but across the globe, it is the day marked by conferences, talks and award- functions and a day of recognition of the work done by women. Across offices and homes, women are given a special status for the day and they often receive gifts and tokens of honour as a part of the celebrations.

The flavours of tea in the Tea Chest includes Rooibos Vanilla Spice, Seventh Heaven, Jasmine Mandarin, Moroccan Mint, Earl Grey and Rose in Bloom. Each of these teas has special properties to improve one’s life and get healthy too. Rooibos Vanilla Spice tea has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant ingredients that can protect against many diseases like cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Moroccan Tea, on the other hand, can help in digestion and respiratory problems, while Earl Grey can boost energy and immunity and help in weight loss.

The Rose in Bloom tea contains rose petals, liquorice, fennel and aniseed, all of which blends together to create a lovely aromatic beverage. In the Jasmine Mandarin Tea, jasmine flowers are picked during the early hours of the day and infused with green tea after dark. In the Moroccan Mint tea, green tea leaves are mixed with Moroccan mint while Seventh Heaven tea is an in-house blend of black Nilgiri tea.

The Tea Chest contains six slots and each of the teas come in luxurious pyramid teabags. The beauty of the box offsets the eclectic assortment of tea flavours that are within.

So, this Women’s Day, invest in a Tea Chest and gift it to a friend, a parent or a relative. If you are a woman, buy one for yourself. This wonderful Tea chest can enrich life in more ways than you can imagine.

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.

We love our tea with food, usually during tea time, but have you tried a cup of tea with a full meal?
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.

We’re not always up to the mark when it comes to taking care of ourselves. Even when we think we’re getting it all right, there’s something we miss out on, or we take our own little “holidays” from our routines, and we’re back to square one. What if there was something that we could do, something simple, to take care of this. After all, they do say that good health has a lot to do with what we digest.

The answer to all of this is quite simple – a cup of tea. Not just any cup of tea, but a cup of earl grey tea. Sounds like bogus, but maybe just give this mildly citrusy beverage a chance, and you’d know what we’re talking about.

Here are some of the goodies you’re going to get from this tea that you’d never have guessed.

1. Better Teeth

Ah! That woke you up, didn’t it? Who wouldn’t want a pretty set of pearls? If you’re someone who eats a lot of chocolates, then pay heed to this: tea contains fluoride, an ingredient your toothpaste contains, which fights cavities and spares you that dreaded visit to the dentist. Also, it contains catechin, an ingredient that keeps away oral infections. Keep in mind that taking care of oral infection is one half of getting rid of bad breath.

Quite a bit for just one cup of tea a day, right.

2. Stress Buster

Stress is the worst and we’re all undergoing it. The result of it doesn’t just take a toll on our mental health, but also our physical self, especially our skin. Earl Grey, as you might know, contains bergamot that has aromatherapy-like qualities and has a calming effect on people who use it. Keeping calm and stress-free is a good way to keep those lines and tired eyes at bay, simply because you sleep better and are happier. It also has an effect similar to that of coffee. So, if you’re not so much into coffee, you’ve got the perfect alternative in Earl Grey.

3. Stay Hydrated (No, we’re not talking about just water)

Tea contains potassium, a very important mineral and electrolyte that helps keep our bodily fluids balanced. There’s no need to give you too many details of the benefits of a well-hydrated body. It’s just the best thing you can do for yourself. It keeps you feeling light and can make losing weight easier, especially with the citrus content (bergamot) present in Earl Grey.

Apart from all the tempting health benefits, Earl Grey is most known for its unique flavour and is among the flavours of tea that goes very well with a dash of milk. Just give it a try and see where it takes you. Oh, and, you’re welcome!
