Description - Research and Analysis

Almond
Prunus dulcis
(Greek Nuts)

The fruit of the almond tree (Prunus amygdalis var dulcis), native to Persia, can be used as a herb that can be used for insomnia and dysentery; an antidote for the influence of witch-craft and the evil eye, it served to stimulate the milk supply of nursing mothers, and to help support headaches and hangover. Five almonds taken before drinking alcoholic beverages were considered the best bracer against intoxication and a supportive for hangovers.

Medicinal Usage

Oil extracted from almond seeds, or kernels, was mainly used in cough mixtures. Externally, it soothed and softened the skin; internally, it acted as a laxative. The ancients held that eating almonds reduced intoxication.

Culinary Usage

Almond seeds were used in sweet and savoury dishes, or were eaten raw, blanched or roasted. They were also used to make a kind of butter.

Miscellaneous

Although the Romans may have introduced almonds into Britain from Mediterranean lands, the tree was not cultivated in England until much later (possibly the sixteenth century). Harvey, however, states that the tree had arrived `by the mid-thirteenth century, at the latest'. What is certain is that it was mainly grown for its blossom, as the fruit seldom-ripened fully because of the British climate. The tree was listed by Aelfric.

Directions

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 tea bag for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea "straight-up."

Iced tea brewing method (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 tea bags into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the bags. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or "milky" when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!

Additional Information

What type of tea do we use, how do we flavor the tea and why do we use natural flavors?

Firstly...we only use high grown teas from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka - Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva. These three high-grown districts produce flavorful teas that have classic "Ceylon" tea character which is noted by floral bouquet and flavor notes, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery color and, most importantly - perfect for use as the base tea of our flavored teas. (We have tested teas from various other origins around the world as base stock for our flavored teas, but none of these teas made the grade).

Dimbula and the western estates of Nuwara Eliya have a major quality peak during Jan/Feb, whereas Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya have their peak in July/Aug. This "dual peak period" allows us to buy the best for our flavored tea blends several times during the year, ensuring top quality and freshness.

Secondly...we use flavoring oils, not crystals, to give the tea drinker an olfactory holiday before indulging in a liquid tea snack.

Thirdly, we specify natural flavors. High quality tea tastes good and natural flavors do not mask the natural taste of the high grown Ceylon tea. (The norm for many making flavored tea is to use overpowering artificial flavors which can be used to hide lower quality tea). Natural flavors do not leave an aftertaste giving the tea a clean and true character. It should be noted that natural flavors tend to be somewhat "soft" and the flavors slightly muted, but for many this is a refreshing change and one of the desired attributes of our naturally flavored teas.
