Eucalyptus tea is crafted from the leaves of the eucalyptus trees, an iconic Australian plant that has become popular in warm regions all over the world.
From the forests of Australia to your favorite tea mug, this brew provides you with all the best eucalyptus has to offer. Referred to sometimes as gum trees depending on the variety, eucalyptus trees boast a long history of use, especially by the Aboriginal Australians. Today, eucalyptus trees are cultivated worldwide, used for everything from making furniture to provide a windbreak for orchards. The essential oil it produces and honey created from its pollen are both considered high quality products. Eucalyptus tea is made from its leaves, creating a tea with the strong aroma characteristic of eucalyptus, and a taste somewhat reminiscent of mint or licorice. Eucalyptus tea is flavorful and refreshing in its own right, but it may also be complemented with a bit of honey or lemon.
The dynamic flavor of eucalyptus tea is only one of the positive qualities this herbal tea has to offer. In a cup of eucalyptus tea, you will find its chief constituent, eucalyptol, the source of its spicy-yet-cooling flavor. It also contains a number of other constituents, including flavonoids, quercetin, tannins and volatile oils. Many of these elements also act as antioxidants, making eucalyptus tea a natural resource for antioxidants.
