  • Black Tea

    It is November, it is raining and the days are getting colder so our Tea of the Month this month is ideal for keeping you warm on these winter afternoons!

    Black Tea!

    The best leaves of the Luponde estate go onto our orthodox black tea. At this altitude the Camellia sinensis bush grows slowly producing a deep and rich, yet crisp, fresh tasting ‘English Breakfast’ style tea making it perfect for your everyday cup.

    Our black tea is made using the traditional orthodox method and you can read all about this on our ‘How Tea is Made’ page.

    As well as being a comforting drink and one that goes perfectly with cakes and biscuits black tea has many health benefits. Black tea contains similar amounts of polyphenols as green tea. These are antioxidants and have great restorative powers. Black tea can help strengthen the immune system and fight off those pesky colds and flu. It has been known to aid in expanding the airways and help asthma sufferers. Black tea can also improve cardiac blood flow and coronary function. It contains abundant tannins which have a soothing anti-inflammatory effect on the digest tract. In 2010, researchers found that people who drank tea had significantly less cognitive decline than non-tea drinkers. A cup of tea contains manganese, which is essential for general development, and potassium which helps to maintain the body’s fluid balance. Although gram for gram tea contains higher levels of caffeine than coffee, less weight is used when making it and therefore a cup of black tea contains considerably less caffeine.

    Now you can be confident when you are enjoying your black tea that is doing you some good!

    You can win some of our black tea this November by emailing your details to tea@luponde.co.uk or by popping them into our teapot in-store.

    We are also offering 10% off all black tea purchases month! Enjoy!

  • How To Make the Perfect Cup of Tea

    Making perfect tea falls between a moral obligation and a survival skill in the UK.  Water temperature and brew time are specific to tea types, so here's what you need to know...

  • Camomile

    Fresh camomile has a beautiful scent, is highly aromatic and has a slightly oily taste and we replicate that by hand picking the whole camomile flowers and initially sun drying them, so they are just how nature intended.

    Camomile is caffeine free and has lots of health benefits. If you are stressed it will help calm you and if you struggle sleeping it can also help you drift off to sleep. It can help treat digestive problems, as well as soothe allergic reactions and menstrual cramps. It is a fabulous drink!

    As it is our Tea of the Month for August you can win some by emailing your details to tea@luponde.co.uk

    I think camomile is our prettiest tea by far and therefore I thought I would share with you a series of pictures from the Luponde estate and the final product so you can see for yourself its beauty!

    Camomile available in tea bags

    Camomile available in loose leaf
