Strawberry black tea combines the succulent taste of sweet strawberries with bright Ceylon black tea. Historians believe that the name 'strawberry' comes from an Old English tradition of placing straw on the ground around this fruit, preventing slugs and other insects from enjoying a free lunch. Once you try our delicious Strawberry black tea, you're sure to see why they were so protective. Fresh sweet-floral and berry flavour, smooth and sugary texture. It's a treat you'll want to keep for yourself!

black tea, natural strawberry flavour, strawberries and raspberry leaves
Strawberries are indigenous to both the northern and southern hemispheres. They are first mentioned in the writings of Cato, a famed Roman Senator. In the 12th Century, however, they were declared unfit to eat. The reason given? Strawberries grow too close to the ground, and are contaminated by the snakes and toads that may have touched them. Thankfully, this proscription had since been lifted, and strawberries are safe (and legal) to eat once again.
