Winter is coming…and there’s nothing more soothing than a cup of hot-spiced tea to warm you up as the temperature drops.
Indians have been using herbs and spices like cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg for centuries to delicately enhance the flavour of our tea. But are you aware that fruits and flowers can also be added to your herbal teas to make a wonderfully refreshing brew with health benefits?
Early Chinese tea masters experimented with and excelled at producing teas scented with the many different aromatic flowers they had at their disposal.
Any tea can be enhanced with herbs, spices, flowers, fruits, essential oils and flavours to create whimsical, imaginative blends. When done well, the addition of interesting, flavorful ingredients can bring out special characteristics unique to each tea.
Inspired by the rich history of the ancient tea trails, QNet would like to delight our customers this winter with a brand new range of exotic tea blends under our Nutriplus Celesteal brand.
The Nutriplus Celesteal Exotic Blend is an imaginative blend of fruits, flowers and spices and is available in three delicious variants — Rose, Apple Cinnamon, and Kahwa. The tea is sourced from the tea gardens of Darjeeling, while the spices are sourced from Southern India. The fruits and flowers are imported from Germany.
Celesteal Apple Cinnamon Tea
Nothing beats the flavour of sweet juicy apple with punchy cinnamon spice. It’s the perfect combination for a lovely fruity and spicy tea.
The Celesteal Apple Cinnamon blend combines the sweet-spicy scent of Indian cinnamon, with a burst of crisp, fresh German apples in a luscious flavour explosion to awaken the senses. This rich, bold and aromatic brew helps with improving energy and focus, boosting metabolism, and helps with digestion.
Celesteal Rose Tea
The infusion of rose petals in tea has been a component of Chinese medicine for more than 5,000 years. Rose petals were also highly valued for their fragrance by the Greeks and Romans who used them to scent their bath water. Rose tea has been a favourite of tea aficionados for centuries.
The Celesteal Rose Tea is an aromatic blend with a subtle and sophisticated flavour, just like the German roses it is made from. It is a rich source of vitamin C, malic acid, pectin, and citric acid, and packed with powerful antioxidants rich in bioflavonoids and alkaloids.
Rose tea is known to have a great many benefits, the most popular ones being its calming properties. It helps with immunity, the vitamin C helps fight sore throats and colds and the antioxidants help slow down the effects of ageing on the skin.
Celesteal Kahwa Tea
Inspired by the beautiful and fragrant Kashmiri Kahwa, one of the most popular and aromatic traditional green teas of the Himalayan valley, the Celesteal Kahwa blend has the same soul warming effect.
A delicate combination of green cardamom, cinnamon, rose petals, and bay leaves blended with natural green tea, every sip of the Celesteal Kahwa is magical.
What makes Celesteal Exotic Blends Special?
Tea prepared correctly is more than just a drink. It is an experience. From the moment you pick up one of our bespoke blends, you know you are handling something special.
The attention to detail in our ingredients and blending process is extraordinary. The Nutriplus Celesteal Exotic teas are blended with only one or two ingredients at a time. Each ingredient is tasted separately to determine its suitability for the blend. Ingredients are hand-pickedto ensure they are of similar density and size to avoid re-blending. Spices are first crushed and then mixed with the choice of tea. Individual rose petals or small buds are chosen over whole or dried flowers. Even the dried fruits used in the teas are chopped to the same size.
When you brew a pot of QNet’s Celesteal Exotic blend, you will smell the rich flavours and witness the exquisite colour of the brew come to life. And with each sip you will experience the connection to your senses, bringing you deeper into the moment.
