RASPBERRY CHOC KISS TEA

From: £4.00 available on subscription

Say it with flowers AND with Tea. (And with Chocolate too!)

 

It started with a kiss…  Sri Lankan and Chinese black tea, with the tartness of raspberry, the fragrance of rose petals and a subtle hint of hot chocolate. You sexy thing!

 

The Twist

This blend works brilliantly in many chocolate cake recipes. Make a tea infused butter by adding the tea to melted butter, leave for 5mins then seive. Once back at room temperature, use as you would regular butter in your recipe.

 

Brewing Instructions

Add boiling water and infuse for 3 minutes. Serve with or without milk.

 

Ingredients

Sri Lankan Black Tea, Chinese Black Tea, Cocoa Nibs (9%), Cocoa Shells (7%), Rose Petals, Freeze-dried Raspberry (5%), Ashwaganda, Siberian Ginseng, Damiana, Vanilla Pieces, Natural Flavouring.

This limited-edition black tea blend contains damiana, a wild Mexican shrub historically used as an aphrodisiac. We can’t vouch for this, but you never know…

 

What is black tea?

After water, black tea is one of the most popular beverages in the world. Black tea is a drink made from the oxidised leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant.  First discovered in China, tea is now grown in several tropical regions across the world. Raspberry Choc Kiss is a blend of two black teas, Sri Lankan and Chinese black tea.

 

What is Ceylon tea?

Ceylon tea is tea cultivated on the island of Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon.  Offering a variety of flavour and colour due to the range of altitudes that it is grown on, Ceylon tea is known for its versatility. Ceylon tea is traditionally used in English breakfast tea blends as it has the strength desired to accompany a full English breakfast.

 

What is Chinese black tea?

Chinese black teas are mainly produced in the southern provinces of China, including Qimen (Keemun) and Yunnan. Chinese black teas differ from black teas produced in India as they often have a much smoother flavour and rarely require the addition of milk and sugar. In China black tea is called ‘red tea’, due to the colour of the drink that is brewed from these leaves.

 

What are the benefits of black tea?

Aside from being the perfect drink to be consumed in just about any situation you could think of, a simple cup of black tea can also have some amazing health benefits:

  • Heart health – animal studies have shown that an antioxidant present in black tea called theaflavin can help reduce cholesterol, thereby supporting your heart health.
  • Blood sugar – theaflavin also helps to lower blood sugar levels, good news for those at risk of diabetes.
  • Gut health – black tea has antimicrobial properties that can help improve your gut health, thereby strengthening your immune system.
  • Anti-cancer properties – the polyphenols contained in black tea are thought to reduce the risk of developing cancer as they can have an inhibiting effect on cancerous cells.
  • Energy boosting – black tea also contains an amino acid called L-theanine. L-theanine has been proven to help focus as it facilitates alpha activity within the brain. It is one of the main reasons as to why it is often reported that tea gives a more stable boost of energy in comparison to coffee.

 

Are there any side effects of black tea?

Black tea naturally contains the stimulant caffeine.  Excessive consumption (more than 4-5 cups per day) may result in symptoms including jitteriness, headache, difficulty in sleeping or an irregular heartbeat. If you think you may be sensitive to caffeine, or if you are pregnant, we recommend that you consult your healthcare professional about the quantity of black tea you should consume.

 

What does Raspberry Choc Kiss taste like?

Raspberry Choc Kiss has the tartness of raspberry with a subtle hint of chocolate. Enjoy this aromatic black tea blend with or without milk, but there is no need for sweetener as we have added natural vanilla pieces for you.
