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. The blend of fruits, herbs and natural flavors combine beautifully to create a summertime cooler or a wintertime reminder of 'summer's not too far away'. By virtue of this fact this does not contain tea, only fruits and herbs - it is caffeine free. An additional benefit is the Vitamin C content of the various fruits. As an iced tea Bear Cub Berry is superb. If you have small children, use it to make popsicles! Simply lightly sweeten to reduce the tart character and freeze!
FOR HOT TEA:
Place 1.5 to 2 tsp. of tea per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into the teapot. Pour boiling water into pot and let it steep for 5-7 minutes (or longer - longer steeping time = more intense flavor). Pour into a cup and add sugar to taste preference. **do not add milk - the milk will curdle due to the ingredients in this blend. Sugar is recommended as it cools.
FOR COLD TEA:
*One Quart* Place 12-15 teaspoons into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Pour tea into serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.
