Wild Strawberry Fruit & Herb
intense strawberry flavor
Wild Strawberry Fruit and Herb is a beautiful blend of fragrant strawberry, tangy hibiscus, rose hip, and tart raspberry leaves. The cup itself has sugared strawberry aroma and a lovely warm berry color. The rich flavor of Wild Strawberry is refreshing and one you’ll reach for over and over.
As a Fruit & Herb Tisane, Wild Strawberry is naturally caffeine-free.
Hibiscus is power-packed with antioxidants and Vitamin C. Traditionally, hibiscus has been used to lower high blood pressure and recent studies show its effectiveness.
Rose hips, also high in antioxidants, contain vitamins C, E, and B and possess anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic and anticancer benefits.
Raspberry leaves are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidant properties
Wild Strawberry Fruit & Herb can be enjoyed hot or iced. It is recommended to add sugar, honey or other sweeteners to balance the tartness of the hibiscus.
Traditional Hot Tea
Measure one heaping teaspoon of tea leaves per one cup water into a tea filter or into an infuser of your choice. Keep in mind, the infuser you choose must be large enough to allow the tea leaves to swell and unfurl. This allows the tea leaves to release their full flavor. Place filter into teapot or mug. Bring filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil then pour into teapot or mug. Infuse 8-10 minutes. Remove the filter and discard or remove infuser and discard tea leaves. Garnish as desired with sugar, honey, sweetener and/or lemon slices.
Measure six heaping teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Bring 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil. Immediately pour boiled water over filter into teapot or heat-resistant pitcher. Infuse 8-10 minutes. Remove filter and sweeten tea with ½ cup sugar if desired. Add 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a serving pitcher. Pour in prepared tea and mix well. Add 2 cups ice and stir. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
Measure four teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place inside a clean glass jar or small pitcher. Position filter so that the tea leaves will be submerged and the top hangs over the side of the jar or pitcher so that leaves do not spill out once water is added. Pour four cups of filtered or freshly drawn water over the filter. Cover with lid or plastic wrap. Refrigerate 8-12 hours (or overnight).
*Cold-infused tea has higher levels of antioxidants. To serve hot, simply pour the cold-infused tisane into a saucepan over medium heat and gently warm to desired temperature.
Store Wild Strawberry in a cool, dark place away from direct light. If stored properly, this tisane will stay fresh for up to two years.
