From Teavivre

Original Place:Shandong Province, China

Dry leaf: Circular slices, dried and comparatively hard with bright red skin and mild yellow Fruit flesh.

Aroma: Strong sour aroma

Liquid: Yellowish, looks slightly turbid for the tiny bits of fruit flesh.

Taste: Tastes light sour, sweet and mouth-watering afterwards.

Big and plump fresh hawthorn fruits are selected to be sliced after cleaned, and then to be dried. The well-made hawthorn fruit slices are thick, which can retain the nutrition and natural taste of hawthorn fruits. The slight sour taste of hawthorn can increase appetite and promote digestion. Besides, it is rich in vitamins and trace elements and also has slimming, beautifying, and activating blood and hypolipidemic effects. Of course, you can add some sugar or honey, and no matter cold drinks or hot drinks, they have good flavor.

So I’m a fruit hog. I eat all kinds of fruit. Tamarind, guava, pomelo, whatever I can get my hands on. I just bought and finished 5 lbs of loquats last month. Those were hard to find!! When living in California, they were everywhere, can pick them off a tree. I had to wait 8 months before they were ready to be picked and shipped to where I’m at now. Anyway, summer is a great time for fruit hogs lol.

So I bought lots of different type of dried fruit samples from TeaVivre to make natural fruit tea. Hawthorn fruit is one of the fruits I’ve never had a chance to eat so I had no clue what it tastes like. Well, I loved it. It was right up my alley. I put 7.5 g of it (sample size) with boiling water. Steep time was 3 minutes or so. It is tart, like tart apple but not like granny smith tart (my favorite apple) but like a cross between a red apple, cranberry, berry tartness. I’m sure many would require some sweetener. I saw some recipes with hawthorn berries and most had some sweetener. I even ate the fruit slices after I finished the tea. hehe I bought 17 oz of it after I tried the sample awhile ago. That’s how much I loved it.

So I looked it up and the health benefits, specifically cardiovascular support studies were incredible. Definitely a super food. I admit that if I didn’t like the taste, I wouldn’t eat it no matter how good it is for me lol. I recommend it if you like tart fruit or you can add agave or honey too. hehe

Fruit hog <3 I had a large loquat tree in San Jose that hanged at the perfect height over my second story apartment’s balcony. Here we have a tree but it’s still too young to fruit.

oooOOOO :D They are delicious. There was only one place on the net that I could buy 5 lbs of them and they were so expensive! I remember always picking them off anybody’s tree in So. Calif. lol

I imagine hawthorn fruit to taste somewhat like rosehips.

Kawaii433

I know they are paired together. I think hawthorn, hibiscus, rosehips are somewhat similar in the tang. ^^

I have looked for hawthorn fruit here, they are quite cheap – but hard to get. Not in stock right now.

Kawaii433

Oooh that would be really cool to grow, Martin.:) My father grew everything, it was his passion. Me, on the other hand, can’t grow a darn thing. lol

Martin Bednář

Ahh. I meant fruits, not trees to grow. But those were available too. But our garden is already full, moreover my mother don’t like hawthorn at all because of thorns :D

Kawaii433

ah kk :) :D

Tossed a handful of these into a large mug and drank them Grandpa Style before bed a few nights ago – not a bad brew but very sharp, acidic flavour. Tasted a lot like watered down apple cider mixed with tartaric acid, which is the stuff that’s added to Sour Skilled/Warheads/etc to make them sour…
