Voted “Best Herbal Tea in North America” by the World Tea Expo, Blueberry Merlot is a delightful addition to Tea Forte’s Herbal Retreat series. From the moment you open the packet, the varicolored tisane reveals the tea’s complex charisma with its intriguing and fruity aroma. Each sip brings the tart sweetness of fresh blueberry, followed by floral notes of Argentine hibiscus and rosehip. Mediterranean sage leaves wisps of mint at the back of the palate, embellishing the blueberry merlot tea with a somewhat spicy finish.
Blueberry Merlot is a natural, caffeine free tea rich in health-giving antioxidants, and comes sealed in an elegant canister that makes around 40 luxurious cups. The ideal way to prepare this blueberry merlot tea hot is to steep it at 208 F for 5 minutes, using one teaspoon of leaves per 8 ounces of water. However, this blueberry leaf tea is especially delicious when served ice-cold, in which case you should use 3 teaspoons of leaves per 8 ounces of water, while demembeoubling the steep time.
