In the spirit of transparency, I admit now that I could be slightly biased when it comes to this delectable white tea. Stemming from my childhood memories of crumbles and purees, apricots have always been my most favoured fruit. I love them in all of their forms…fresh, frozen, dried, and now as a tea!
As you may expect, the taste is naturally delicate and slightly citrus. I allowed the water to cool to around 80 degrees before stewing for 3 minutes, and I did add a small spoonful of honey. The honey is not essential but if you have a particularly sweet-tooth like myself, you may wish to do the same.
Apricots are rich in soluble fibre, which is why they are so good at fighting constipation and reducing cholesterol. They also contain vitamin A, beta-carotene, and other carotenoids, all of which are excellent at promoting eye-health. Who would have thought all of these advantages from such a small fruit…
