Origin of Black Tea
Black tea is a blend of the oldest leaves of one of the Camellia sinensis bushes. Compared to other teas, black tea has a higher percentage of oxidation. This difference will give black tea a more intense flavour. After harvesting, the green leaves go through an osmosis process lasting up to 20 hours. Later, they are rolled by hand or by machines. It is at this stage that the tea leaves start their oxidation process. Finally, the leaves are left to dry naturally.
Due to the high caffeine content, Black Tea can influence the increase of body energy and the unbalancing of the nervous system. Choose to consume it during the day, naturally and without added sugar. Take it to reduce fatigue, lose weight and relieve poor digestion. Black Tea may stimulate body energy for 4 to 6 hours.
Raspberry – Known to us for thousands of years, raspberry is a super nutritional fruit high in iron and vitamin C. The raspberry is believed to originate from Asia Minor and has been highly cultivated for over 450 years. Much of its current production is concentrated in Europe, Ukraine, Hungary, Poland, and Russia. This red fruit is considered a superfood that may assist in strengthening defences and healing wounds.
Strawberry – Strawberry is possibly one of the most popular fruits in healthy eating, thanks to its low-calorie content. This red fruit with a bittersweet flavour reminds us of the freshness of the fields and spring afternoons. Consumed for millions of years, strawberries are produced on a large scale in several countries. The largest productions are concentrated in China, Poland, Russia, Mexico, Germany, Turkey, and the United States. In Portugal, the region that stands out in strawberry cultivation is the Algarve.
In 2020, according to the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), nearly 9,000,000 tonnes of strawberries were produced. This heart-shaped fruit is versatile and easy to grow. However, it needs daily control due to the pests that easily dominate strawberry plants. Thanks to its antioxidant and vitamin potential, strawberries can help reduce inflammation, strengthen defences and improve digestion. A daily consumption of 10 strawberries is recommended.
