Ingredients: Luxury black tea, Papaya, Blackberries, Peach, Ginger, Sunflower, Calendula, Natural flavours
Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straightup’.
Iced tea-brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
Here we have combined the Queen of spices with one of nature’s most exotic fruits-namely the peach! The result is a delightful taste of peach with mild spice. A perfect mid morning tea! Also, as this tea offers a sweet and fanciful taste of peach, seasoned with the tingle of spicy ginger, it is exceptional over ice. Are you aware that it is said that peaches were first cultivated in China and that the peach had a mythical power in aiding immortality? The peach is a symbol of truth and purported to have great healing attributes. Ginger on the other hand is reported to have high antioxidant properties that make it a free radical scavenger. Combine the two and one has more than just a flavourful cup of tea!
