Description

Bael (Aegle marmelos L), also known as Japanese Bitter Orange, Stone Apple, and Wood Apple -  is an extremely popular sweet drink in both India and Thailand that is great both hot or cold.

The Bael Fruit tree takes around 11 months to ripen, and when it does - actually getting to the fruit can pose quite a challenge as this is one hard fruit! Once opened, one is rewarded with a taste and fragrance that can be described as 'sweet, aromatic and pleasant, although tangy and slightly astringent'.
Please note that this tea does contain a very small amount of small 'string fibres' - which is a part of the fruit itself.

A fruit considered holy in India, and commonly planted around temples.
