What Is Fruit Tea
Fruit tea differs from other varieties of tea because, well…
…it’s not tea. For the sake of convenience, we term it “tea,” yet fruit tea is not derived from the tea plant (camellia sinensis). The fancy word for this is a tisane, which is basically dried fruits with spices, flowers, and herbs added. Unless a lot of sugar is added, which isn’t essential, it’s absolutely beneficial for you in a variety of ways! Unfortunately, low-quality tea might have a lot of additional garbage that takes away from the original flavor, leaving nothing but a sugary, bland taste.
Is It Good For You?
A well made fruit tea should be naturally sweet and fruity, with a lot of flavor. For ages, dried fruit stewed in water has been consumed; it may be incredibly refreshing and energy-boosting. Fruit tea is high in vitamins and antioxidants, and it is excellent for detoxifying the body and boosting the immune system. In that regard, it is quite similar to tea leaves, with the added bonus of high amounts of health benefits.
Unfortunately, fruit tea has had a terrible run lately, with store mixes often lacking flavor. Fortunately, here at Bird & Blend, we are obligated to correct its reputation with our large selection of attractive and flavorful fruit mixes, which are diversified and entirely natural! Even our “flavoring,” which appears on our ingredients list from time to time, is merely an extraction from the fruit itself. We want to keep it all-natural to demonstrate how simple it is to make delicious fruit tea. Because it isn’t really “tea,” one of its best features is that it’s naturally caffeine-free! So it’s ideal if you’re trying to avoid caffeine or want a calming drink before bed!
It Is That Popular
Fruit teas and herbal teas are the most popular hot beverages in Germany technically, these are not teas, but rather infusions. Fruit tea is an infusion made from fresh or dried fruit and plants chopped into small bits. It is a tea-like beverage, according to German food legislation rules, because it is not manufactured using the same conventional manner as green tea or black tea. Furthermore, it is not derived from the plants Camellia sinensis or Camellia assamica. Fruit tea does not include caffeine in its purest form.
The Power of This Beverage
Fruit tea, black green tea, and fruit tea do not have an especially stimulating impact. The infusion is primarily a welcome source of refreshment and thirst quencher. Vitamins, trace elements, and minerals are examples of valuable plant components. Doesn’t the absence of caffeine imply that there would be no stimulating effect? No, not always. It is energizes the senses and quenches thirst. If you want to avoid sweets, this low-calorie beverage is a tasty everyday option. Some people drink it hot, while others wait for it to cool. On hot days, iced fruit tea is very pleasant.
What To Serve With It?
Are you throwing a shower or a party and looking for some finger foods that go nicely with this tea? These are fantastic! My cookbook, The Southern Entertainer’s Cookbook, also contains a plethora of fantastic party dishes. Mini Avocado Toast with Peach Pecan Baked Brie Cream Cheese Cookies with Southern Lemon Chess Pie I generally serve one specialty drink (such as this tea) along with water and a tray of garnishes during gatherings (like citrus fruits and mint). If you can’t get mint in the market, I highly recommend growing your own! I don’t have a green thumb, but I can grow mint, which is very easy to cultivate and useful as a garnish for dishes and beverages.
I love cooking because it's so relaxing! I just put on my favorite tunes, and then get to work. First I'll look up what kind of food I want to cook, and find a good recipe for it. Then when the meal is ready everyone usually can't stop telling me how much they loved everything that was made. It makes me feel really accomplished knowing that people liked what I made for them!
