Maybe it’s the memory of summers past, or the bevy of summer
fruits available at the farmer’s market, but every summer, we find ourselves
craving light, fruity teas that are unfussy and yet robust enough to be served
over ice. With that, we bring you six of our favorite fruity teas – perfect for
summer, or any time you want to tempt your palate with something sweet.
Crimson Berry Fruit Tisane
First up is a fruity tisane we love because it’s
caffeine-free and thirst quenching. Our
Berry Fruit Tisane
combines rooibos, tart hibiscus and mellow
rosehips with sweet currants, elderberries and cranberries for a well-rounded,

For even more fun, you can use this tea to make tea-flavored frozen fruit pops . Yum!
Organic Citrus Ginger Green Tea
Green tea lovers on the lookout for a balanced, fruity green

In some regions around the world, summer means mango season.
In India and elsewhere, this intensely sweet fruit ripens on long stems and is
picked at the height of perfection. Then, it’s used in everything from mango
lassis to chutneys, or simply eaten raw. If mangoes haven’t made it to your
farmer’s market, you can still enjoy the fruits of the season – in your teapot.
We offer two organic mango tea blends – a caffeine-free
(kids love it!) and a stunning Organic Mango
Organic Apricot Black Tea
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention this customer favorite – a subtly fruity and balanced tea flavored with apricots and lightly floral organic calendula. Our Organic Apricot Black Tea is perfect for those who are curious about fruity teas, but prefer a more subtle flavor.
