Strawberry teas capture the delicate flavours of the fruit with its special aroma and taste. According to folklore, strawberries are a sign of love, which is why strawberry infused black tea is so popular for those seeking a sensual tea experience.

The benefits of this tea are multi-fold. To begin with, it is excellent for digestion. The lovely tannins in the tea have anti-inflammatory properties which can help in digestive problems like upset stomach, bloating and tummy aches. Since the tea is chock full of minerals like magnesium, potassium and calcium, it helps in keeping your bones healthy too. It functions as a diuretic by removing water in the joints that cause inflammation and pain. Since it is very low on calories, it can help in weight loss, which is very important during the monsoon months as most of us would not venture out on a rainy day. The tea is rich in Vitamin C, fibre, iodine, potassium, folate, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B5 and omega fatty acids which are very good for health.

It is also known to regulate blood sugar, decrease risk for cancer, enhance the immune system and improve heart and cardiovascular health. It is also known for its anti-ageing properties.

Black decaffeinated strawberry tea is rich in flavonoids which is a potent antioxidant, that helps remove free radicals from your cells and tissues. Free radicals are chemicals produced in your body as by-products of metabolism or after you are exposed to environmental toxins. They can damage your cells, injuring membranes, proteins and DNA. In the long term, free radicals can hasten ageing and raise your risk for potentially serious, chronic disease.

Preparing a cup of the tea is very simple. You can use boiling water and add the Decaf strawberry tea bags and let it steep gently for three or four minutes, before discarding the bag. You can add a spoon of sugar or honey to sweeten the tea. The other method is to pour chilled water and add ice to give you a cold glass of iced strawberry tea.

Whichever way you choose to enjoy this tea, you will enjoy a deep sense of satisfaction when you sip on this beverage. It is the perfect pick-me-up that will cheer you up, brighten your days, warm your nights and take you to a new level of health and well-being over the monsoon.
