INFO

Technically, the teas we send out aren’t teas at all. Due to not being the actual tea plant, they would fall under the category of infusions or the unappetising-sounding ‘tisanes’. They aren’t really anything like your standard builders brew, loved by so many for its tannins, slight bitterness and woody undertones. This Oak Leaf Tea is different though. We reckon it’s about as close as you might get to regular black tea and even prefer it with a dash of milk too. We made it by picking the freshest green growth way back in early Spring, smashing it into bits to break down the fibres and letting it oxidise before finally drying it out (this is actually how regular tea is made too). Ok, so it might not be an exact match to the hot beverages drank by monkeys and proud northern counties, but it has a pleasant, earthy warmth to it and is a pretty decent, caffeine-free, wild alternative. Plus oak leaves reportedly have all sorts of health benefits going for them, so its win-win. The bag you have in your Forage Box is enough for at least two teapots and best used in similar proportions to standard loose-leaf tea.

Oak is a common native tree found across the country and is easily identified. Please be considerate when harvesting foliage and pick sparingly.
