Anyone who enjoys herbal teas will love the blossomy brilliance of this Tea Forte loose leaf specialty tea. Ginger Plum is a caffeine-free potpourri of flower and fruit-based ingredients, crafted with artisan care and imbued with antioxidant infusions. Fresh hibiscus, rose hips and cornflower petals practically blossom with flowery zest when steeped in water. You’ll also savor the fruity sweet resonance of blackberry leaves, cranberry pieces and French figs, not to mention the all-important natural plum flavor. In the wake of each sip is a gentle tingle of cinnamon and ginger, like woody notes upon the tongue.
This fresh ginger tea comes in an elegant, airtight container with enough tea leaves for 50 servings, and is delicious hot or cold. Tea Forte recommends steeping it for 5 minutes at 208 F. Longer steeping times will yield stronger flavors. For loose leaf iced teas, use 3 teaspoons per 8 ounce cup, and double the steeping time.
