Black tea (Camellia Sinensis) has many health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, supports cardiovascular health, and has been found to provide protection against cardiovascular disease and several cancers. The antioxidants in black tea are called polyphenols. Polyphenols have been found to block DNA damage associated with toxic chemicals. Alkylamine antigens are a component of black tea. These improve the function of the immune system and boosts its response to foreign antigens. The tannins in black tea also have a therapeutic effect on the gastric lining and improve digestive activity.
Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) is a small citrus tree which blossoms during the winter. Bergamot gives the beautiful citrus flavour of our Earl Grey. Therapeutically, it has been found to stimulate the production of gastric juices and enzymes. Bergamot is often used for improved digestive capacity, as well as having antimicrobial properties.
Earl grey is a stunning kitchen staple, along with our traditional English Breakfast tea.
