What flavours are used in your teas?
t leaf T only uses natural or flavours formerly known as nature identical.
In fact around 53% of our teas and infusions contain no added flavours other than the natural ingredient they contain.
Any of our teas containing natural flavour have the flavour listed as 'natural flavour' in the ingredients list; if it just states 'flavour' it is referring to the formerly known Nature Identical flavour.
The term natural ﬂavour or ﬂavouring refers to the essential oil, essence or extract, or any product of roasting or heating etc, which contains the ﬂavouring constituents derived from a spice, fruit, vegetable, root, herb or similar whose signiﬁcant function in food is ﬂavouring rather than nutritional.
Flavours (formerly Nature-identical ﬂavours):
These are composed identically as a substance that appears in nature, mainly of herbal origin. For example, a strawberry ﬂavour is completely identical to the ﬂavour found in a strawberry. The molecular structure is the same.
The advantages of this type of flavouring are: Greater stability Greater intensity The quality is more constant Better durability of the ﬁnished product No contamination with pesticides or other environmental contaminants
