THE STORY OF CRANBERRY APPLE
This tisane has an exotic flavor profile. All of our fruit tisanes are characterized by chunks of brightly colored fruit, and top quality herbs. This delicious blend of cranberry, fruit and apple flavors combined with the natural flavors and tartness of the dried fruits create a wintertime hot tea, or summertime summertime cooler.
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, about 10 cloves - simmer for 15 minutes - add sugar to taste - now you have the perfect gluwien - Incredible!
For a summer time drink Cranberry Apple iced is hard to beat. It is refreshing and thirst quenching and not overly sweet. For formal times garnish the glass with a slice of orange and a stick of cinnamon - for non-formal times pour it into your glass and enjoy it gulp after gulp! If you have small children use the Cranberry Apple tea to make popsicles - they taste great and contain very little sugar.
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!
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.
