Herb and fruit tea in some circles is considered a new type of tea. We formulated this blend to accommodate tastes of people who wanted to experience a refreshing healthy new style drink without caffeine. What we got was a terrific ‘tea’ that is unbelievably delicious and enjoyed Hot or Cold! This tea has a very exotic flavor profile. The delicious blend of cinnamon and fruit flavors combined with the natural flavors and tartness of the various dried fruits create a summertime cooler or a wintertime summer reminder.
This tea has a flavor with spicy cinnamon notes and blended with sweet nutty almond and exotic fruit. You can imagine this drink being served on the fabled train, which runs between Paris and Istanbul. The intrigue that follows this train complements the mystery of the fruit and spice - not unlike some of the shadowy and mysterious characters who rode The Orient Express on their missions to the dark corners of The Middle East. For a summer time drink Orient Express iced is hard to beat. It is refreshing and thirst quenching and not overly sweet. For formal times garnish the glass with a strawberry and a sprig of mint - for non-formal times pour it into your glass and enjoy it gulp after gulp!
If you are a skier or enjoy evenings in a rustic cabin around a roaring fireplace, put a pot of this tea on. After it has brewed pour into 3 quart cooking pot, add a bottle of deep full flavored red wine, a couple slices of orange and a stick of cinnamon - simmer for 15 minutes - add sugar to taste - now you have the perfect gluwien - incredible!By virtue of the fact that these blends do not contain any tea and are a special blend of fruits and herbs - they are caffeine free! An additional benefit is that these ‘teas’ contain Vitamin C. What could be better - a healthy drink that tastes GREAT!
