Tea Review: Berry Berry (Metropolitan Tea Company)

Berry Berry
Metropolitan Tea Company
Type:  Herbal
Origin:  Not Provided
Product Description:  A full flavored tea with deep berry notes. The infused cup is burgundy red and provides strength and character. A terrific herbal tea. Our clients tell us that Berry Berry is their most favorite herb and fruit tea. We have to agree. The hibiscus adds a tart dimension to the blend, which makes it very refreshing. The rosehip chips add a mellow smoothness to the tea along with Vitamin C. The currants give the tea a very distinctive character - black for fruitiness and red currants for ‘bite’ and tangy flavor. Finally, we added raisins to give a natural sweetness and topped this off with natural flavors to further enhance the delightful character of this tea.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The blend contains dried fruit (elderberry, black currant) and flowers (hibiscus) with a fruity, berry aroma. 

The infusion is ruby red with an aroma of berries and a floral and berry taste.

I would recommend stopping with one infusion as the bright color, aroma, and taste fade considerably with additional steepings.  This is a nice herbal that can be served both hot and cold and would be great for people looking something sweet, caffeine-free, and guilt-free.

This was tea was provided as part of a workshop.
