Medicinal Usage

The popular rhyme "an apple a day keeps the doctor away", echoes the ancient belief that the fruit was a herb with many uses. The bark was also used for health benefits. The fruit was mainly used to help support constipation, reduce acidity of the stomach and assist in the digestion of other foods. Rotten apples were used as a poultice for sore eyes.

Culinary Usage

A favourite medieval fruit, apples were chiefly used as a food, cooked or raw, and for making cider. They were also included in chutneys, sauces, jams and jellies.

Miscellaneous

Cultivated varieties of apple were probably introduced into England by the Romans. During medieval times, the monks increased the number of varieties by grafting scions (shoots), brought from other monasteries or imported from the Continent, on to established rootstocks.
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. We may pay more for high grown Ceylons, but the taste is worth it).

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 the liquid tea delicacy.

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.

Now you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labor (or should we say flavor) knowing that we have formulated the best flavored teas that are available.
