Apricots an aphrodisiac? The ancient Chinese certainly thought so, and believed that the fruit contained special fertility enhancing properties. Could the same be said for Apricot tea? We'll never tell.

What we can tell you is that the apricot was first cultivated in China after fruit bearing trees were discovered growing on the temperate mountain slopes of that country. It's Latin name however, Prunus Armeniaca, owes its root to the fact that the fruit made its way westward via farmers in Armenia.

Eagerly awaited as one of the first fresh fruits of summer, apricots are noted for their intense fragrance and sweet flavor. Fresh apricots are also a great source of vitamin A. The sweet character of the fruit blends exceptionally with our high grown Ceylon tea and goes well with a dash of sugar. So brew a pot, pour two cups and let the fireworks begin!
