    • chaya teahouse herbal tisane hawthorne fruits
    • A healthy and long-lasting, light yellowish infusion, deliciously sour, tangy and sweet, and a very popular refreshment in the Far East.



    A long-lasting infusion, light yellow in colour, pleasantly sour, tangy and sweet, quite similar to greengage but with a slight darker and more mellow taste.


    Some people add agave syrup or honey for extra sweetness. You can eat the fruit after drinking the tisane.


    The dried fruit is available sliced with the skin on or off – the former makes a quicker infusion.


    Hawthorne is believed to regulate blood pressure, stimulate the appetite and reduce phlegm.


    The fruit look like tiny red apples. The Chinese take the ripened fruit, remove the seeds and mash them with honey to make a dessert which as a child I loved to eat on baking hot days in Singapore. It’s also used to make cakes, jams and jellies.


    Hawthorne Fruit slices come in 20 grams foil pack.





    This tea is supplied in a zip-loc foil pack to prolong its fresh flavour, within a beautiful paper wrap hand-stamped with an extract from the 8th century tea classic Cha Jing.
