THE STORY OF BURGANDY BERRY BERRY
This rich, deep red tisane has quickly become Elora Tea's favorite blend. We love to drink it, and love to sell it. This tisane, rooted in Hibiscus petals, has generous helpings of dried elderberries and corinthian raisans. It's hard to see the herb through the fruit. This tea has a powerful aroma that can be detected from yards away.
When we set up our store for the first time, and opened the tin, we found that passers by would turn their heads. We discovered that the easiest way to demonstrate the quality of our teas to a customer who was inquiring about the difference between a supermarket teabag and our loose leaf teas, was to simply lift the lid of our Burgandy Berry Berry, and ask the customer to stand where they were for a few seconds. The reaction was the same every time. The most common response: "Wow!"
This tea, like all our fruit tisanes, produces a rich, full bodied tea. Delicious.
BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with water brought to a boil for 3-7 minutes.
Infuse 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of tea with 1 1/4 cups of boiling water for 7 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water, and add the infused tea, straining the leaves, to the pitcher. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Add lemon and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.
Infuse 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea with 6 ounces of boiling water for 7 minutes. Add the tea to a 12 ounce glass, filled with ice, straining the leaves. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Add lemon and sweeten to taste.
NUMBER OF CUPS: 15-20 cups from each 50 grams of tea, with a single use of the leaves. Loose leaf tea is traditionally infused 3 times, with a different flavor profile following each infusion. Accordingly, each 50 gram bag can make up to 60 cups of tea.
