For centuries green tea has been celebrated for its myriad of health benefits. From promoting weight loss to reducing the level of bad cholesterol, and even helping prevent memory loss, it is as though there is nothing this tea can’t cure! With all these benefits it comes as no surprise that green tea has become a household name, and in many countries, it has even surpassed the popularity of traditional black tea! While all teas originate from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis tea bush, green tea stands out. This brew has a unique flavour, fragrance, and colour and this is because green tea leaves are left unoxidised and unfermented thus giving this brew a rather delicate flavour. If your loved one is a fan of green tea, we suggest gifting a box of Peppermint and Lemon Green Tea for something extra special.
Most tea drinking novices may not know this but blends like chamomile and peppermint are not classified as tea, they are herbal infusions—although they often moonlight as tea! While nothing compares to a good cup of tea, there are certain occasions your loved one may not be able to consume a cuppa. For instance, it is advised that pregnant women and people suffering from insomnia should not drink tea due to its caffeine content. On these occasions, opt for gifting a herbal infusion. Zesta’s Wellness Collection is infused with various spices and herbs, each designed for a specific function. Whether you want to Detox or Sleep better, there will be an infusion to suit your every need, making it the perfect caffeine-free drink.
An assortment of novelty Ceylon teas makes for fantastic birthday and anniversary gifts. You may think an avid tea drinker would be bored with Earl Grey tea, English Breakfast tea, and even regular black tea, but this could not be further from the truth. Each tea- even if it is the same tea type- tastes different. There are a lot of factors that affect the taste, aroma, and colour of the tea. One of the best gifts you could give is Zesta’s Tea Story, a collection of Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe black tea from the Uva region of Sri Lanka. Also, Zesta’s English Breakfast is a robust full-bodied single-origin tea and the perfect way to kickstart your morning. Being a single-origin tea, this blend has a unique taste as it is not mixed with teas from other regions thus creating a very special tea.
There is no greater feeling than gathering with your loved ones around a fresh pot of tea. Tea has an extraordinary way of bringing people together and being a source of comfort. Explore the world of Zesta to gift love, happiness, and tea!
