It’s all in the ingredients:
Black tea potentially offers a variety of health benefits because it contains antioxidants and compounds that can help reduce inflammation in the body. Consuming them on a regular basis may help reduce many risk factors for heart disease, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, elevated triglyceride levels and obesity
The polyphenols found in black tea may help maintain a healthy gut by promoting the growth of good bacteria and inhibiting the growth of bad bacteria, such as Salmonella. In addition, black tea contains antimicrobial properties that kill off harmful substances and improve gut bacteria and immunity by helping repair the lining of the digestive tract.
Drinking black tea on a regular basis may help decrease systolic and diastolic blood pressure, but research is mixed. Other studies have found that drinking black tea may also help reduce the risk of stroke.
On eating sugar, the pancreas secretes a hormone called insulin to carry the sugar to the muscles to be used for energy. If you consume more sugar than your body needs, the excess sugar gets stored as fat. Black tea (when unsweetened) has been found to help enhance the use of insulin in the body.
Rose hips are the round, seed-filled bulbs found underneath rose petals. Unlike rose blossoms, which bloom in the spring and summer months, rose hips generally grow after the petals have bloomed and started falling off, which is usually in early to mid-Autumn. In fact, they’re considered sweeter when picked after the first frost of the season.
Rose hips get their red-orange colour from carotenoid pigments known as lycopene and beta carotene. These pigments are thought to promote skin and eye health.
They’re also rich in disease-fighting antioxidants, such as vitamin C, catechins, quercetin, and ellagic acid. A diet rich in these compounds can help lower inflammation and oxidative stress in your body.
Furthermore, vitamin C plays a key role in collagen synthesis and supporting the immune system.
The juniper tree, Juniperus communis, is an evergreen shrub that produces seed cones that are commonly known as juniper berries which are deep blue. Their aroma is often described as woody or spicy and they have a tart, pine-like flavour.
These small berries have been used for culinary and medicinal purposes since ancient times, and current research suggests that they may offer various health benefits.
They are high in levels of Vitamin C, essential for immune health, collagen synthesis, and blood vessel function. It also acts as a strong antioxidant, protecting your cells from damage caused by unstable molecules called free radicals which can lead to serious disease.
The berries are also packed with many plant compounds, including flavonoid antioxidants, volatile oils, and coumarins, which are chemical compounds with various protective properties. The volatile oils in juniper berries contain substances known as monoterpenes, which have been shown to provide anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties.
Juniper berries were used in traditional medicine practices to treat diabetes, and recent studies confirm that they may indeed have antidiabetic properties. They may also promote heart health by improving cholesterol levels.
cinnamon contains anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties which means it supports your immune system. Ceylon cinnamon was also part of a study that showed it enhanced antioxidant enzyme activity which means it may prevent or treat certain types of cancer. A few studies have shown that cinnamon may help to slow the progression of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
Star anise is a spice made from the fruit of the Chinese evergreen tree Illicium verum.
It’s aptly named for the star-shaped pods from which the spice seeds are harvested and has a flavour reminiscent of liquorice so adds a delicious sweetness to our tea.
Packed with antioxidants star anise is a rich source of the flavonoid anethole. This compound is responsible for the spice’s distinct flavour and offers potent antifungal benefits. It is thought Star Anise can also inhibit bacterial growth implicated in a variety of common illnesses - some research has revealed that star anise extract is as effective as antibiotics against multiple drug-resistant pathogenic bacteria.
Cloves are the flower buds of the clove tree, an evergreen also known as Syzygium aromaticum. They are best known as a sweet and aromatic spice, but they have also been used in traditional medicine.
As well as containing several important vitamins and minerals, cloves are rich in antioxidants and some research suggests that the compounds found in cloves might help protect against cancer.
Cloves have been shown to have antimicrobial properties, meaning they can help stop the growth of microorganisms like bacteria and it is also believed that the beneficial compounds in cloves could help promote liver health.

Ceylon Cinnamon, or ‘true cinnamon’ is made from the inner bark of the Cinnamomum verum tree. This bark is harvested and dried producing curls, which are commonly called cinnamon sticks. Ceylon Cinnamon is higher quality, slightly sweeter and more expensive than the more readily available Cassia Cinnamon which is the variety generally found in the supermarkets. Ceylon Cinnamon can be purchased as whole sticks, as an extract or as ground powder.
Ceylon cinnamon contains anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties which means it supports your immune system. Ceylon cinnamon was also part of a study that showed it enhanced antioxidant enzyme activity which means it may prevent or treat certain types of cancer. A few studies have shown that cinnamon may help to slow the progression of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
Our cinnamon spiced honey also has an infusion of ginger. This helps to give it a flavoursome spicy kick, which is both sweet and delicious.
Ginger contains gingerol, a natural oil that provides ginger’s unique fragrance and flavour. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger and is responsible for much of ginger’s medicinal properties. Ginger is believed to assist with digestion, help to fight colds and flu and also to reduce nausea, especially in pregnancy and when having chemotherapy. It also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which can help reduce menstrual pain.
It is possible that Ginger can help reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis, as well as lowering blood sugar levels, and reducing the risk of heart disease.
Cloves have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties but are also a great source of beta-carotene which is converted by the body into Vitamin A and vital for maintaining eye health. It is also possible that cloves can help to improve your liver function, as well as protect your stomach lining from ulcers.
Coriander is believed to help in lowering blood sugar thus benefiting heart and brain health, as well as promoting gut health.
The biggest benefit of vanilla is its antioxidant properties, which are thought to help the body to repair itself as well as protect it from diseases such as cancers and diabetes. Vanilla is also believed to have anti-aging properties, helping to promote healthier, more vibrant looking skin.
Honey is a great alternative to sugar, but it has also been revered for centuries for its medicinal uses and health benefits. It is said that honey is an effective cough suppressant, and it is also thought to be a powerful treatment for burns and other skin wounds. Honey could possibly also aid sleep and boost memory. Its many anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties are believed to help protect and fight against diseases and illnesses.
Despite no scientific evidence to prove that the effects of honey together with the fusion of healthy spices are greater than the separate parts, it surely can’t do any harm and it’s definitely a delicious way to combine six fabulous flavours in an indulgent winter-inspired treat.
