Berry Mélange Fruit and Herb Tisane is a bold whole fruit tisane composed of dried cranberries, elderberries, bilberries, raspberries, blueberries, hibiscus and rosehip. Berry Mélange steeps to a beautiful deep rose color and has a delicious, sweet aroma. Because it is a naturally caffeine-free tisane, Berry Mélange makes a perfect cup to enjoy all throughout the day.
Berry Mélange Fruit and Herb Tisane is enjoyable served hot and is excellent served over ice. Due to the inclusion of hibiscus petals, the addition of sugar or sweetener is encouraged. Adding cow’s milk to this fruity tisane is not recommended as it would curdle.
To prepare Berry Mélange Fruit and Herb Tisane, measure one to two heaping teaspoons of tea leaves per one cup of water. Infuse 8-10 minutes. It is not recommended to steep fruit and herb tisanes more than once.

Winter Fruit Punch
3 tablespoon Berry Mélange whole fruit blend
4 cups water
½ cup sugar
1 cup orange juice
2/3 cup pineapple juice
1 tablespoon lime juice
3 cups ginger ale
Measure Berry Mélange whole fruit blend into #4 TeaBrew Filter (or divide between two #2 TeaBrew filters). Temper large tea pot or heat-resistant pitcher. (To temper a pot or pitcher, simply fill with very hot tap water and allow to sit until vessel material is warmed. Once warm, empty the water from the pot or pitcher.) Place tea filter in pot or pitcher. Set aside.
Bring 4 cups of fresh, filtered water to a boil. Carefully, pour water over the filter into the tea pot or pitcher. Position top of filter so that the tea is completely submerged, but the top is easy to grab. Infuse 10 minutes. Remove filter. Add sugar and stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool completely.
Stir in orange juice, pineapple juice and lime juice. Chill at least one hour or until serving time.
Just before serving, pour in ginger ale and add the orange slices, lime slices and maraschino cherries.
