One of herbal tea's greatest benefits is its complete lack of caffeine, making it a perfect beverage to enjoy any time of day. When it's crafted with care, blending sweet summer blueberries with organic hibiscus and rosehip, what results is a lush cup of tea perfect for a moment of relaxation, celebration, or anything in between.
Tea Forté's Blueberry Merlot is thoughtfully curated with pure enjoyment in mind. Its sweet, simple fragrance hints at the flavor profile to follow: a subtle balance of berries and botanicals harvested right from the garden.
Blueberry Merlot is available in Loose Tea Canisters, hot tea pyramid infusers and iced tea pyramid infusers.
HERBAL FRUIT TEA
The experience of Tea Forté's Blueberry Merlot begins with its inviting violet hue and soft, sweet aroma, beckoning you to take a sip. Blueberries are the star of this full-bodied blend, supported by the gentle tartness of hibiscus alongside an earthy whisper of floral rosehip. Just a touch of Mediterranean sage brings the fruit-forward blend together in sublime harmony. This "anytime" tisane (casually referred to as herbal tea, but crafted without the caffeinated leaves of the camellia sinensis tea plant) is naturally free of caffeine.
While this herbal tisane contains no tannins from tea leaves, the blueberry skins in the tea impart a deeply satisfying and lightly tannic quality. Along with its tart-sweet flavor profile, this gives it an almost wine-like mouthfeel, perfect for sipping on a porch swing or picnic blanket. Its balance of fruit and herbs offers a bounty of antioxidants in the form of volatile oils, flavonoids, and phenolic acids. Winner of the "Best Herbal Tea in North America" award, this succulent beverage contains an endless summer in every cup.
ENJOY HOT OR ICED
This fruit-forward herbal tea may be enjoyed hot or iced. Consider adding a touch of sugar or honey after steeping (but before chilling or pouring over ice) to accentuate its lushness, or simply enjoy its natural sweetness without any accompaniment. For a quintessential summer treat, enjoy Blueberry Merlot Tea Over Ice®, specially blended and balanced for flash chilling in the Tea Over Ice® Pitcher Set. However you take your tea, be sure to accept its invitation to sit back and enjoy some gorgeous, well-deserved refreshment. Blueberry Merlot also makes a great addition to cocktails!
