Sublime House of Tea


Here come the holidays, here comes the festival of sparkle and lights. It’s Diwali – that time of the year when families across the nation come home to be with their loved ones and light up their happy homes.

Diyas and fire crackers are what this Indian festival is known for around the world, but what really gets everyone going during this time is the food. Sweets and namkeens (savouries) are the fuel that keep the celebrities going. Full meals take a back seat, and it’s like tea time all day.

Did we say ‘tea time’? Oh yes, we did! Because there is no snack time without a cup o’ tea.

Despite all the flavours of tea to choose from, we tend to stick to one or two. Although, you may enjoy the other flavours if you maybe tried them with different snacks/foods. And what better time to try this than now – the festive season!!

Here are some flavours or types of tea that will compliment this Diwali’s sweet and savoury combinations.

1. Besan Sev and Shakarpara with Cranberry Mango Mania
Why would this be a good combination? Well, we think that the sweet and tarty flavour of the cranberry mango mania will help enhance the flavour of the super light basin sev, a popular Diwali namkeen. Apart from being a tasty beverage, the drink will also help with all the maida (all-purpose flour) content of the addictive shakarpara.

2. Murukku and Gujiya with Ginger Mint Tea
These two are among the favourites during the festive season. Gujiyas are basically sweet dumplings with a generous filling of khoya and crushed nuts. Isn’t your mouth watering already?! Serve these with little swirls of joy – no, not softy ice cream, but murukkus and refreshing ginger mint tea. They’re the perfect match to the sugary-sweet gujiyas. After all, too much sweetness can’t be all good.

3. Bread Pakora and Puran Poli (or Obbattu) with Rooibos Vanilla Spice
This combination can get a little heavy on the stomach, so it’s only right to accompany it with a warm cup of tea. The rooibos vanilla spice is more of an herbal tea, which makes it a healthy option when your tea time consists of fried goodies like the comforting bread pakora and puran poli, a sweet flat bread, or obbattu, a roti with a sweet filling.

There’s a lot more where this came from, but we’re going to leave it up to you to choose your food and cuppa. We hope you have a lovely Diwali, full of love and light

September is poised to be full of stormy winds and rain-laden clouds, almost like the early monsoon days of the season used to be. There is no better time to sit back and enjoy the soothing sweetness of a good cup of tea and savour its goodness all day. And if you need a tea to transport you to beverage paradise, the Seventh Heaven Tea from Sublime is your best bet for the season.

New research has found that a perfect cup of tea can chase away the blues and bring in the winds of happiness into your life, but there’s some more good news too. Chinese researchers have recently found that the right blend of tea can refresh the mind, make you more creative and make the cognitive functions of the brain much more sharp than before.

Seventh Heaven Tea is essentially black tea with the flavours of fruit, and is chock-full of beauty and health benefits, and all the other fine properties of a distinctive tea blend. Why should you opt for this tea? Read on…

To begin with black tea which is produced by oxidising the leaves of Camellia sinensis and allowed to dry in order to release the moisture, is always on top of the popularity charts due to the way it is manufactured. As soon as the plants lose all the moisture possible, it is rolled and exposed to high temperatures. The level of oxidation determines the colour and flavour of the tea, which can range from deep amber to warm brown with golden tones. It is one of the most loved teas in the world due to its ability to boost heart health, reduce high cholesterol, boost bone health and increase your mental focus.

This tea is best known for the fact that it contains polyphenols that have anti-oxidant properties which can
revent DNA damage. This means that you can delay ageing and all its degenerative consequences by many years. The compounds in black tea, namely theaflavins and thearubigins are loaded with health benefits. The tea is strong, powerful, bold and delicious, making it one of the finest teas globally.

Among its many other health benefits, this tea prevents heart diseases and is known to reverse the abnormal functioning of blood vessels, thereby leading to decreased risk of contracting heart diseases. It is also associated with reduced levels of fasting blood glucose and as its polyphenols lower the glycaemic index in the body.

But the beauty of Seventh Heaven tea does not end there. It is also infused with a natural aroma and a wonderful fruit bouquet. The freeze dried tropical fruit that is blended into this tea makes it much more special. Many tea manufacturers add a hint of fruity flavour to black tea as it can be too strong.

Fruits like oranges, watermelon and raspberries are very popular in fruit teas but Seventh Heaven uses melon and other tropical fruits to give it an exotic flavour like no other. This tea is low on calories and prevents food cravings. It helps relieve digestive discomfort, reduces fever and nausea and relieves stress too. Some people say it is like a dessert in a cup, minus the calories but loaded with health benefits. Many of the fruits are also rich in vitamins that are good for the hair and the skin as well.

The health benefits of these teas can range from being anti-depressants due to the calming effect they have on the body. These fruit blends can reduce your blood pressure, prevent kidney diseases and give the immune system a boost.

Seventh Heaven tea must be prepared carefully. Heat water in kettle for a few minutes. It should not reach boiling point. Make sure you take it off the stove when it is around 85 to 90 degrees centigrade. Put the Seventh Heaven teabag in a cup and pour the hot water into it. Let it steep for three to four minutes till the colour is rich and dark.

Enjoy it at all times of the day, as it can pep you up and make you feel good all day.

So, the next time the clouds gather and you feel your spirits sinking and your cognitive functions getting weary, enjoy a cup of Seventh Heaven Tea. This beverage is like pure ambrosia for the soul; it can rejuvenate and refresh your mind and body for an entire season and through winter too.

Green tea, as healthy as it is, does not agree with many palettes. This is the reason for many individuals avoiding it altogether. But what if there was a little flavour to it – Jasmine with a dash of orange, maybe. Fragrant white blossoms (sometimes referred to as the queen of flowers) and Mandarin orange infused in green tea, this exotic fruity and floral blend doesn’t waste any time in making you feel relaxed and oh-so-fresh.

Since it’s essentially green tea, it naturally comes with a list of health benefits, with a recommendation to consume at least one cup of this tea a day. Before we look into this, let’s start with how we can make ourselves the best cup of Jasmine Mandarin Tea.

One Jasmine Mandarin Coming Up!

The first tip is to ensure the water your Jasmine Mandarin tea is steeped in is not too hot. Else, it could end up being bitter, and then you’re back to not enjoying your ‘green tea’.

  • Bring water close to a boil in a kettle
  • Pour some water in a cup and steep your bag of Jasmine Mandarin in it
  • Leave your tea in for 3-4 minutes. Any longer can make the tea too strong for your liking, but
    go ahead if you’re alright with this.
  • Add sugar or honey to this, as required (optional). (Jasmine makes this tea naturally sweet)

Fun Fact: If you’ve made about 4 or more cups of Jasmine Mandarin tea, ensure that you don’t pour it into the cups one by one. Instead, pour it out in all the cups in a continuous motion. You may have
to do this 2-3 times, but it’s fun and worth it, as this will ensure the taste is balanced and each cup of
tea has equal flavour.

Be sure to really take in the beautiful flowery-citrusy fragrance and warmth of the tea before your
first sip. It just adds to the pleasure of drinking it.

Jasmine Mandarin Tea & Health

Green tea has the highest amount of antioxidants as compared to other teas and it also prevents cell damage. It is also know to improve blood flow and reduce cholesterol, which proves crucial in improving the overall health and lifestyle of an individual. Jasmine has been known to reduce stress by calming the mind and helping with sleep, and citrus fruits are high in Vitamin C and help keep cold and flu at bay.

There’s no doubt that consuming one cup of Jasmine Mandarin tea a day will drastically improve a person’s way of living and being. It’ll be your first step towards your good health.
