It's not just good, but it's also good for you!
The benefits of Black Tea
Over the years black tea has been somewhat obscured by green and white teas. However the benefits of black tea are indeed numerous and all of them are excellent reasons to savour our black tea blends on a regular basis. From those that are more structured (Scottish Blend, Morning Blend and Imperial Breakfast) to the more aromatic ones (Special Blend and Afternoon blend) and the more delicate and low-caffeine teas (Royal Blend and 5 O’clock Tea).
The beneficial properties of Green Tea
The benefits of green tea are now well known and documented: it is rich in antioxidants, stimulates the metabolism, protects the skin and reduces cholesterol levels. Our advice is always to choose a high quality green tea!
For a moment of pure wellbeing, we want to recommend Blue Lady, a Chinese green tea enriched with pineapple pieces, natural aromas of cherry, strawberry, fig and rhubarb. Not only does it have a unique and unforgettable taste, but it is rich in antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins and minerals. Blue Lady is available in 3 different sizes: in an elegant 150 g airtight tin, in a 100 g ziplock package and in over-wrapped pyramidal filters.
We also have two more splendid green tea blends, Citrus Blossom and Lover's Tea. In Citrus Blossom we have added the properties and freshness of citrus fruits to the already present benefits of Japanese sencha. A tea rich in vitamins and minerals, Lovers Tea is a mixture of Chinese green tea, which combines oriental fruits, papayas and flower petals.
However we cannot forget to mention Moroccan Secret, our beloved Gunpowder Chinese green tea blend to which we have added mint leaves. Quenching and rehydrating, Moroccan Secret is also available in three formats: airtight tin, ziplock package and over-wrapped pyramidal filters
A Stroll in the Forum, the fourth component of our 7 Teas of Rome collection, comes from the fusion of three precious Sencha green teas, naturally perfumed with red fruits, flowers and spices. Fruity and intense, it is a perfect accompaniment to a light lunch as well as an afternoon tea drink.
Oolong: tasty and healthy
Oolong is the tea of a thousand scents, it embodies the beneficial qualities of black tea and green tea. A truly important ally to our health! Naturally low in caffeine, it contains vitamin C and helps strengthen the immune system. Could you need more reasons to try our delicious In The Mood For Love? This tea should be drunk pure or with a little sugar, our oolong blend prepared with rooibos, pineapple, raisins, orange peel, blueberry and natural citrus aromas is a real boost for mind and body.
Summer? Let us take care of ourselves!
Who said that tea is only drunk in winter! In summer, tea can help us maintain the right level of hydration. Babingtons recommends two popular green tea blends to be enjoyed ice cold: Cherry Rose and Moroccan Secret, which can be purchased in colourful 100g airtight tins. And for those looking for a refreshing and vitamin-rich herbal tea we have our Summer Fruit Herbal Tea, one not to miss!

What's better than a good herbal tea? Undoubtedly, a good herbal tea that also does you good! The Babingtons herbal teas that we offer are not only delicious, but also healthy because we have prepared them with selected ingredients rich in antioxidants, trace minerals and vitamins.
In particular, when it comes to vitamins, we cannot fail to mention one of the most popular Babingtons herbal teas: Forest Fruits. Fruity but not overly sweet, our Forest Fruits has a strong remineralising, antioxidant, and circulatory aid as well as being rich in vitamins A, C and K.
Rooibos is a South African herbal tea, also famous and sought after for its high content of antioxidants, mineral salts and vitamins. Naturally sweet, Rooibos is the base we used in our infusion African Nights to which we added aromatic flower petals.
For a concentration of Vitamin C, which we all know is of paramount importance to our wellbeing, we have created an herbal tea which bears its name. Based on hibiscus, rose hips and citrus fruits: Vitamin C is ideal especially in the morning.
A topic close to many people’s hearts is digestion. If you are looking for a digestive herbal tea that is also delicious, you are in the right place. To promote healthy digestion, we recommend Lemon Verbena, a refreshing herbal tea also indicated to reduce stress. Moreover, our Digestive herbal tea with mint, fennel, anise and liquorice is ideal after meals. Leave the table with a fresh palate and a light stomach
Sleep is also of great importance to our wellbeing: sleeping 8 hours a night allows us to be strong during the day. Before going to bed, treat yourself to one of our relaxing herbal teas: Relax, with chamomile, linden flowers and orange blossom or Sleepy, with chamomile and scented with petals of rose, lemon balm and lavender. Sleepy will help you forget daytime anxieties and give you a restful night’s sleep!
