This terrifically berry herbal infusion is great for adults and children alike. The hibiscus adds a refreshing tart dimension to this organic herbal tea; the rosehips a mellow smoothness; and the currants, elderberries and cranberries a rich fruitiness. Caffeine free, Crimson Berry is delightful both hot and cold - add a cinnamon stick and a dash of sugar for an extra treat or freeze as popsicles for the kids!

Ingredients: organic hibiscus, organic currants, organic rosehips, organic elderberries, organic cranberries, organic South African rooibos, and natural summer fruit flavors

What are Flavored Teas?

cherries-plums-raspberries-flavor.jpg

Our delicious flavored teas use the same top-quality organic tea that we offer in our unflavored varieties, but are blended with pieces of real fruit, spices, flowers, and 100% natural flavors. When blending our teas, our goal is to create a cup that balances the taste of the tea with the flavors of the additional ingredients so that neither one overpowers. All of the natural flavors we use are either extracts taken directly from the botanical ingredient, or extracted using 100% GMO-free grain alcohol as a solvent. You can rest assured that none of the flavors used in our blends are synthetically or artificially derived, and do not use artificial preservatives.

Steeping Instructions

At Arbor Teas, we believe tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. We’re happy to make recommendations to get you started, but don’t hesitate to experiment! When brewing your tea, your main considerations are tea quantity, water temperature, and steeping time. We recommend herbal and rooibos teas to be steeped for 5 to 7 minutes in water heated to a full rolling boil. For the best flavor, use fresh water whenever possible, and avoid overboiling. If you want a stronger brew, just use more tea. And don’t forget to re-steep your tea leaves to get the most out of your leaf!

    Oooh so berry lovely

    Posted by Seanna Hartbauer on 28th Jun 2020

    I love this! Without anything added, it's delightfully tart with a sweet berry aroma. With sugar or honey, it's like dessert. It smells like raspberry and currants and makes your mouth water. It is SO GOOD iced!

    Stock up on This!

    Posted by Raina Angelier on 2nd Apr 2019

    We love the flavor of this tea, but especially value it for it's ingredients. Seems to have a great immune boosting effect. If you are starting to feel run down or have a cold, try this tisane. We feel like this tea decreases the duration of it.

    Sweet, Sour, & Fruity

    Posted by Laura on 1st Jul 2018

    This tea is great brewed for three and a half minutes at two full teaspoons in sixteen ounces of water at 212 degrees and mixed with a teaspoon of sugar. It has strong fruit notes with a touch of sour zip. I've also mixed in a half teaspoon of peppermint for a minty twist which is also great! I'll order in bulk to sip all through the year.

    Delicious!

    Posted by Emily on 1st Feb 2018

    When I opened the package, it gave off the best scent I have ever encountered in a tea. It has a nice, strong fruity/hibiscus flavor. Good with a little honey and/or a squeeze of Meyer lemon if you want a little zing.

    Great flavor, daily favorite year-round

    Posted by LS on 15th Sep 2017

    This is our favorite at home, one we have just about every day, year-round. The flavor is great, sometimes I add extra to make it especially concentrated. I also sometimes let it steep for several hours to let the flavor really come out. I drink it as is while my husband likes it with honey. In fact, he even eats the honey-coated leaves at the end and says they're tasty. We definitely recommend this tea.

    A light version of Hibiscus

    Posted by Derek on 1st Jan 2017

    Tastes like a light version of Hibiscus tea with a hint of berry; no strong tartness here, and it does not taste like cough syrup as someone else mentioned. The flavor does improve as the temperature of the tea lowers.

    Good but not great

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Dec 2016

    I ordered this in the sample size. I wanted something that was caffeine free and this had great reviews. While i agree as an Iced tea with a tad bit of sugar this would be delicious, especially in summer, however i was looking for a herbal tea that was for a hot cup of tea and this just isn't quite there. I will admit the flavor does improve while it cools hence why it would probably make a wonderful Iced tea but when hot it almost has a strong medical taste like kids cherry cough syrup. If you're looking for a fruity iced tea you'll probably be happy but if you're looking for a warm herbal tea I personally recommend against it.

    Delicious!

    Posted by Xochi on 8th Jul 2016

    I've been sampling teas for a couple of months now since winter. Now that it's summer, I had to try something cold. I brew this tea and I was in heaven! I had to share it at work with coworkers. The smell is delightful and the taste is perfect. It's thirst quenching too! Absolutely love it.

    SUPERB!

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Mar 2016

    I was shocked at how much I love this tea! I ordered a sample of it on a whim, thinking I needed a "fruit" tea to try. WOW! I'm addicted. The berry flavor doesn't overpower the tea. It's the perfect blend of tart and sweet. Give it a try!

    Berries in tea you can TASTE!

    Posted by Matthew on 10th Mar 2016

    Totally refreshing and delectable fruit tea! Great blended mix, amazing aroma and great as is or I add barely a tip of a teaspoon of organic powdered Stevia extract! Can't wait to try it chilled this summer! I also brew in my Keurig 1.0 and turn the temp down to 187. Use the Solofill single cup reusable Filter (BEST) and run the small cup brew twice. Absolutely ENJOY this tea!

    LOVE IT!!

    Posted by Bonnie R. on 6th Jan 2015

    Bought a sample and my husband & I both loved it! Back to buy a large bag! This would be great iced or hot! Right now as cold as it is; we're drinking hot tea in the evenings but I can see how this would be wonderful iced! especially blended with some peppermint & chamomile. It's fruity, a little tart but personally I like that; although I found the longer it brews the less tart it becomes. This is a great herbal blend!!

    Fruity and Fantastic

    Posted by Tammy on 11th Dec 2014

    I have had this for about six months and I have to say it is a favorite. I love using it as a cold brew and sometimes I will add a little raw sugar or honey. Even my husband who is not a big Tea fan loves this. I find the longer that it's steeps the less tarts that it is. For a little kick I will add a little peppermint leaves.fan love this. I find the longer that it's steeps the less tart that it is.

    Excellent with honey

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Jul 2014

    I like it served cold with a little honey, well stirred. Delicious. Then I keep the used tea, let it dry out, and let it sit in a bowl to scent my kitchen!

    Awesome!

    Posted by Ashley Jean on 24th May 2014

    I really like this tea. It's like something I could get at starbucks but cheaper and tastes more authentic! I got the sample and I will be buying the regular size soon :D

    Sweet and Fruity!

    Fruitea!

    Posted by Yen-Wen C. on 14th Mar 2014

    We love the tea!!! It's extremely fruity! It's slightly on the sour and tart side when I took the first sip.. for some reason, the longer it sits, the better it tastes! It's amazing taste! It's naturally sweet too. Great for anyone who wants to get into drinking tea. This is certainly a winner!! It's good no matter hot or cold, summer or winter.... there is always a place for such great tea like this one!

    Delicious Tea

    Posted by Aylin Celtik on 5th Feb 2014

    This a very berry and delicious tea. Delicate balance of fruit flavors and sweetness. A nice mid-afternoon tea that provides a pleasing relaxed break in the middle of a busy day. You must try.

    A berry nice tea!

    Posted by Dimitra on 17th Feb 2013

    This tea is a wonderful fruity tea, which I especially enjoy in the summer time. Ideal steep time as directed, even for icing, (otherwise, bitter). A nice summer time drink: 1/2 tea, 1/2 carbonated mineral water, served over ice with a splash of lemon and/or lime. Great for kid's birthday parties. In the winter time, I enjoy this tea with honey, some steeped ginger and also find that it is combines nicely with the organic chamomile tea.

    Fresh and juicy!

    Posted by S. Nelson on 9th Jan 2013

    I brewed this up last night before going to bed, and it was a perfect wind down to the end of a long day. It smelled like fresh fruit, the color was fantastic and inviting, and it had a more pronounced fruit flavor than a "regular" tea would have. A little stevia, and I had a warm, sweet, fruity drink to help me relax. I can tell this would taste excellent cold, too. A definite "give it a shot!"

    Excellent

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Nov 2012

    I'm not a tea drinker, much less herbal tea. I had this tea at a restaurant when I just didn't want coffee. I was instantly in love. The restaurant gave me a cup of leaves. I immediately did a web search? I added lime juice. So good!

    Love the taste!

    Posted by Kasia on 27th Oct 2012

    I always was a fan of fruity, color rich teas and this one definitely is one of my favorites. Another plus, its caffeine free, so I don't feel guilty drinking it while pregnant.

    Great Berry Flavor, Caffeine Free, Great Hot or Cold

    Posted by John R Lee on 19th Jul 2012

    This is my favorite herbal tea. It has a robust flavor that is great to taste but not too strong; and since it's an herbal tea, it is caffeine free.

    Not Cough Syrup

    Posted by Georgina R on 15th Jan 2012

    I completely understand why one reviewer wrote it tastes like Robitussin cherry cough syrup, but I didn't think it tasted like it at all. It has a strong berry aroma and taste. My husband also loved it, and it is a gorgeous color brewed. We got 3 cups out a serving.

    Cough syrup in a cup...

    Posted by Lukasz on 6th Dec 2011

    I purposely waited 9+ months to review this tea in order to provide a true assessment of it. I ordered this tea in bulk and stored it inside the large air tight metal containers sold here. I bought this in bulk and should have tried the sampler first. What sounds like a refreshing summer beverage unfortunately reminds me of Robitussin “cherry” cough syrup. The flavor and aroma is very intense and not refreshing to me, especially when served hot. When made on a larger scale and chilled, it is actually pretty good. Leave out the sugar and you’ll pick up more tart notes and add sugar if you want to elevate that cough syrup flavor and aroma!

    Good tea

    I love this tea. How many teaspoons would you use for the ice tea brewing pitcher with the infuser?

    Crimson Berry Fruit Tinsuree

    Posted by Chris on 12th May 2009

    This is my all time favorite caffeine free tea. I like it by itself or added to healthy green and white tea for an antioxidant boost from both sides of the flavor spectrum.
