I have a confession to make: I nicked this from my mom’s stash, BUT it’s okay because she’s currently in Thailand and won’t notice anyways!
Another confession: this is what I kinda expected DavidsTea’s Prairie Berry to taste like… and then it didn’t. So, sometimes when I want this tea dumbed down and the DT Prairie Berry to be more flavourful I just mix the two together!
Now, let’s talk about this tea. Currently, with the roller-coaster of nausea/vomiting I am on, it’s the only fruity tea that I have been guzzling. And I mean guzzling. Hot. Cold. Iced. It doesn’t matter, if it’s there I will drink it. Plus, add a little honey or raw sugar, pop it in the fridge overnight, and it tastes like Saskatchewan Summer in a glass. Which is nice because our lovely summer abruptly ended this week with -5C temperatures.
I’ve discovered that this fruit tisane makes a really nice iced tea, especially when I sweetened it with a bit of honey. It almost tastes like some sort of tart-ish fruit juice.
The sweetness of this tisane seems to come out more with a lower steeping temperature and I’m tasting the fruits more clearly aswell. Nice.
I wanted something caffeine-free that didn’t involve rooibos tonight, so after shuffling through the contents of my tea cupboard (and thinking “Damn, I’ve got a a lot of tea!”) I decided on this one. Mmm, fruity.
Oddly enough, while I can taste the hibiscus in this tisane, I don’t mind it that much as it isn’t very strong or prominent, and it just seems to ‘go’ with the other ingredients. I added a bit of honey to sweetened it, but after deliberation I think it tastes better without. I guess the fruit in it is so naturally sweet you don’t really need anything extra.
Lightly tart and fruity, plus I love saskatoon berries.
