Black tea fusions at The Tea Centre

Black tea fusions are the umbrella term we use to describe flavoured black teas! In turn, flavoured black tea or black tea fusion is any brew with a black tea base blended with other ingredients like fruits, florals, roots, and herbs. You can find out more about the history of black tea fusions here.

As seen above, The Tea Centre has a plethora of traditional and contemporary flavoured black tea blends for you to taste and choose from!

What health benefits come from drinking flavoured black tea fusions?

Given black tea forms the base of any fusion in this collection, these blends boast the same health benefits as popular loose leaves like Assam and Ceylon. They are also imbued with the wellbeing properties of each fruit, floral, and/or herb that are included in the individual blends. Because of this, each black tea fusion sports its own unique perks! We suggest clicking on your tea fusion of choice and reading their description to find out more.

For example, one 2017 Sri Lankan study on black tea broke down the composition of the leaves and how these components have positive bioactive impacts on the body. Just some of the good things that black tea contains are: catechins, theaflavins, simple polyphenols/other polyphenols, theanine, amino acids, peptides/proteins, potassium, and caffeine.

Containing less caffeine than your average coffee, this component works well with theanine to bring the sipper some focus and mental stimulation (Kahathuduwa et al., 2016). Catechins boast the double impact of not only blessing tea with a tannic taste (bold biting flavour) but also thought to encourage antioxidant activity. Lastly, "tea polyphenols are also known for their antibacterial activity." (Kodagoda & Wickramasinghe, 2017). However, it should be note that antibacterial activity decreases when the extent of tea fermentation is increased, implying stronger activity in green tea than black tea.

How much caffeine is in a black tea fusion?

While we can tell you that all fusion blends with a black tea base contain caffeine because it derives from the caffeine-imbued Camellia Sinensis plant, how much is highly dependent on a number of factors. Everything from brewing methods to the particular varietal of black tea can impact how much caffeine ends up in your cup of tea. For a comprehensive breakdown of caffeine content in tea, read our related Tea Journal entry here.  

How many calories are in a black tea fusion?

Little to none, depending on the black tea fusion in question! Even with our sweet dessert teas like Chocolate Brownie and After Dark, we estimate that the calories in one cup would contribute to less than 0.1% of one’s suggested daily calorie intake (i.e. 2,000 calories). So sip to your heart’s content!

How do you brew a cup of fusion black tea?

To brew a perfect cup of black tea fusion you need to do the following.

  • Measure out one teaspoon or two grams of black tea per 200ml using an infuser or filter bag.
  • Pour in water at 95°C or just below the boil.
  • Steep broken leaves for 2-3 minutes. Steep larger leaves and flavoured teas for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add a splash of milk, sugar, and/or honey if desired.
  • Purchase flavoured black tea fusions online or in-store at The Tea Centre shops

    Here at The Tea Centre, we pride ourselves on the elite quality of our tea and work hard to make them luxurious and thoroughly enjoyable. You will notice that our black tea fusions are beautifully fragrant and enticing, with elements of vanilla, tropical fruits, and caramel featured in different teas across our range. It’s all part of our plan to provide you with the finest tea possible.

    Making a pot or cup of fusion black tea with loose leaves is not as hard as it sounds, with easy-to-use infusers and strainers available. However, if you are looking for a quicker alternative, we do also offer a range of teas in biodegradable pyramid tea bags, including black tea bags, green tea bags, and herbal tea bags.
