Berry Berry - Herb & Fruit
Herb and fruit tea in some circles is considered a new type of tea. We formulated this blend to accommodate tastes of people who wanted to experience a refreshing healthy new style drink without caffeine. What we got was a terrific ‘tea’ that is unbelievably delicious and enjoyed Hot or Cold! In fact we have clients in the northern climes who add a few cloves and cinnamon sticks, simmer for an hour and then add some red wine – a perfect mulled wine for cold stormy nights. Our clients tell us that Berry Berry is their most favorite herb and fruit tea. We have to agree. The hibiscus adds a tart dimension to the blend, which makes it very refreshing. The rosehip chips add a mellow smoothness to the tea along with Vitamin C. The currants give the tea a very distinctive character – black for fruitiness and red currants for ‘bite’ and tangy flavor. Finally, we added raisins to give a natural sweetness and topped this off with natural flavors to further enhance the delightful character of this tea.
For a terrific hot drink garnish with a cinnamon stick and a slice of orange and instead of using white sugar try brown sugar (Go Mick Jagger). The cinnamon gives a lovely spice hint and the orange brightens up the berry character. For a summer time drink Berry Berry iced is hard to beat. It is refreshing and thirst quenching and not overly sweet. For formal times garnish the glass with a strawberry and a sprig of mint – for non-formal times pour it into your glass and enjoy it gulp after gulp! For your young children – get popsicle forms and freeze lightly sweeten Berry Berry, your kids will love it! By virtue of the fact these blends do not contain any tea and are a special blend of fruits and herbs – they are caffeine free! An additional benefit is these ‘teas’ contain Vitamin C. What could be better – a healthy drink that tastes GREAT!
