Enjoying the Taste of Flavored Teas
More people are drinking tea today than ever. The increased popularity of teas and tisanes of all kinds is making headlines in the United States and around the world. According to recent reports in the beverage world, flavored teas offer an excellent alternative to sugary sodas and juices.
Last year, we noted some significant tea trends. Two reasons for the increased popularity of tea are environmental concerns and purported health benefits. According to the latest beverage industry research, both traditional and flavored teas have risen in popularity at approximately 20% each year from 2017.
Flavored teas have been around for a long time, and are a great way to add variety to your drinks without adding excess sugar. The demand for flavored teas is expected to rise even more from 2020 through 2025. Restaurateurs find that their customers are more likely to order tea over other beverages, including those containing alcohol if their teas are flavored.
While many flavored teas are regional in terms of flavor preferences, some flavors, like peach and raspberry, remain the most popular overall. Of the flavors, you can find peach and raspberry tea in cups around the world. In addition to tasting great with tea, peaches and raspberries also have additional health benefits.
The Perennial Goodness of Raspberries
Raspberries are a natural taste treat that is a part of the genus Rubus species of cane fruits. They are also related to roses. The canes which produce these flavorful berries take approximately two years to mature before the berries make their appearance during the summer months. They’re a popular addition to gardens as a hedgerow.
Though raspberries are made up of over 85% water, they also have an impressive nutritional value of 6.5 grams of dietary fiber, very little fat or calories, and are packed with Vitamin C and other essential minerals like manganese.
While scientists and health researchers are still looking into many of the potential health benefits of raspberries, herbalists and folk healers believe that both the leaf and the fruit of the raspberry plant may help ease conditions such as menstrual cramps and other conditions in women.
Not only that, they also taste really good! Raspberries are among the most popular of berries. Their tart flavor pairs well with the tannins of tea to make it taste less bitter.
The Power of Prevention Inside the Peach
Like the Camellia sinensis or the tea plant, the peach tree (Prunus persica) originated in China. A close relative of the nectarine, the fragrant sweetness of peaches contains nutrients, antioxidants, and chemical constituents that can boost the immune system and help the body heal itself.
A single peach contains approximately 15% of the recommended daily requirement of Vitamin C. Peaches also contain Vitamin E, which promotes healthy, glowing skin, can help lower blood pressure, and assist indigestion. Vitamin E benefits healthy bones and teeth in ways that are believed to be superior to taking a daily supplement.
Scientists find that this fruit contains various compounds such as phenols and carotenoids. These have been shown to possess potential anti-tumor and anti-cancer properties. The same chemical constituents found in peaches could help in the fight against cancer of the breast, lung, and colon. There is also a great deal of research being done on the effect that peach may have on heart health and age-related conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
