Day 21 of our Tea Advent Calendar! We have a fruity treat for you today. It's the delicious Red Berry.
This tea is a punchy, full on infusion of mixed berries, fruit & hibiscus. Natural ingredients. Wow, a real fruit flavour from a tea, finally!
Fruit tea or 'tisanne' is a blend of fruits with no actual tea in it. When we came to design this berry tea we taste tested the world of fruit teas. . . . Generally they smell amazing but fall flat at the last hurdle, albeit the most important one. Taste. Well, we wanted to produce something that tasted as good as it smells. It was simple, use real big chunky pieces of fruit. Tart and juicy.
How We Like It
Brew 1 teaspoon (2.5g) per 200ml water. Or 1 Suki scoop per stump teapot. Infuse in freshly boiled water (98°C) for 3-6 minutes.
Red Berry is naturally caffeine free, so you can enjoy it at any time of the day. Or why not try it as a cocktail? It is Saturday night after all..
Red Berry Daiquiri
What You'll Need
Simply put 2 scoops of Red Berry tea into a glass then add a healthy shot of your favourite rum and allow the tea & rum to infuse for 5 minutes. Next you'll need to strain out the rum through a cup infuser to remove the pieces of tea. Add chopped strawberries, 2 tablespoons of sugar, one splash of Grenadine syrup and the infused Red Berry Rum to the cocktail shaker. Use your muddler to squash & mix together, add lid & shake well. Fill a cocktail glass to the top with crushed ice, pour your Daiquiri over the ice, garnish & ENJOY!
