Overview

Bold with full berry flavour. Soft underlying creamy notes belie a tart character.


  • Tea Type: Organic fruit and herbal tea

  • Caffeine Level: Caffeine-free

  • Ingredients: Elderberry and raisin pieces, hibiscus petals, natural flavours


Caffeine free herb and fruit tea - what could be better! The hibiscus adds a tart dimension to the blend which makes it very refreshing. The rosehip chips add a mellow smoothness to the tea plus an excellent boost of Vitamin C while the currants give the tea a very distinctive character - black for fruitiness and red currants for ‘bite’ and tangy flavor. Even though the raisins impart a natural sweetness, you still might want to add a dash of sugar.

Hibiscus which has traditionally been associated with ‘grace and beauty’ is a plant that is native to Africa. The calyces, which form the outer protective covering of the flowers buds are dried and used to make a rosy, citrus-flavored tea. Rosehips have been used for centuries in tea and food preparation. Literature has recorded Native Americans using rose hips in their cooking. Other literature has indicated the rose hips are rich in vitamin C, E, and K and have been used over the millennia to ward off infections and relieve sore throats. Currants are also very popular and have been used in infusions for centuries. It has even been recorded that in Siberia a drink is made of the leaves which can make common spirits taste like expensive brandy.

For a terrific hot drink garnish with a cinnamon stick and a slice of orange and instead of using white sugar try brown sugar. The cinnamon gives a lovely spice hint and the orange brightens up the berry character. For a summertime 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. By virtue of the fact this drink does not contain any tea (from the camellia sinensis plant) and is a special blend of fruits and herbs – it is caffeine free! An additional benefit is this ‘tea’ contains Vitamin C, E and K. What could be better - a health drink that tastes great!
