The blueberry is one of the few fruits native to North America and was an important crop to the early Pilgrims, who learned about its cultivation from the Native Americans. A beverage made with blueberries was an important staple for Civil War Soldiers. Now, studies have found that blueberries rank #1 in antioxidant activity when compared to 40 other fresh fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants help neutralize harmful by-products of metabolism called “free radicals” that can lead to cancer and other age related diseases. This tea blends together the taste of summer sun-ripened blueberries with premium white tea from the Fujian region of China. A customer favorite, this tea is delectable both hot and cold.
