Organic Crimson Berry Fruit Tisane


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?


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!

    Delightful & Versatile

    Posted by Robin Decker on 20th Jul 2024

    I’ve always loved this as sun tea and this year I’ve been crafting mocktails for my now sober mother. I used this tea as the base for a NA Sangria and it was delicious!

    Bought this for my husband and he is over the moon about it. I typically don’t drink berry tea but I am now a convert. Fresh, fruity, bright, robust, and naturally sweet. Highly recommend!

    A healthful necessity!

    Posted by Chinyere Echewa on 10th Jan 2023

    I'm a single-source purist when it comes to my teas, but this brew is just delightful! I needed something decaf to drink in the afternoons, and now I order the largest size. "Tart, tangy, red and round" are my tasting notes. If you wish to drink it hot, I'd use half the recommended amount, or it can get syrupy strong! This tisane shines when cold brewed or iced! I can drink 60oz+ per day easily, and I get my iron, vitamin C and a lot of other health benefits. It's perfectly balanced for me. :)

    get a sample first!

    Posted by Skye on 5th Nov 2022

    I wanted so badly to love this tea because I'm always looking for a good caffeine free tea to drink in the afternoons and evenings (sadly, I'm one of those people who gets insomnia if they have caffeine after lunch). The first time I made this tea it was in the summer and I made an iced tea out of it. I agree that it is refreshing but... there was something I couldn't put my finger on about it. Then I brewed it hot and I realized what it was - it tastes like cough syrup. I see from the reviews that I'm not alone in having this response to it. I definitely think that this is a tea that should be tried in the sample size first because I think some palates are more likely to taste cough syrup than others. For example, I also think a lot of cocktails (like cosmopolitans) can taste like cough syrup so I think it may be one of those things, like how cilantro tastes like soap to some people. If you're someone who tastes cough syrup in cocktails, you may want to try a sample size first. Luckily, I have a friend who also can't drink caffeine so I'm gifting her my bag and hoping she doesn't taste cough syrup when she drinks it because I'd hate to see such an expensive tea go to waste.

    I drink either this Organic Crimson Berry Fruit Tisane OR Arbor Tea’s Organic Hibiscus after I’ve had my morning Arbor Tea/Organic Earl Gray every day. I love the Crimson Berry. It is a little tart and sweet, at the same time. As another commenter wrote, it’s great hot or cold. IMO; when warm it has more depth, when cold it it sweeter. I do not add any sweeteners to it. It’s not to everyone’s palate, but if you love cranberry, elderberry, rosehips, or rooibos it’s fantastic.

    Crimson Berry Fruit Tisane

    Posted by Abby Spolin on 8th Jun 2022

    This tea is delicious both hot and cold. As the weather gets warmer, I have been cold brewing the tea. Its cherry berry flavor is so thirst quenching and the crimson color is spectacular. I will be enjoying this tea for many years to come.

    I Keep a Pitcher in my Fridge all Summer Long!

    Posted by Louisa on 2nd Jun 2022

    My daughter and I love to keep this on hand for flavorful summer hydration. Lightly tart and very refreshing! This tea also goes well with a touch of sweetener. Definitely one of my favorites.

    Like drinking medicine

    Posted by Hannah on 1st Jun 2022

    Agree with the other review. I bought a full bag of this expecting to drink it all summer. Unfortunately, it was like drinking cold robitussin! I'm so sad I wasted my money on this. I wish I had ordered a sample pack first.

    Crimson Berry Fruit (iced)

    Posted by Trevin on 20th Apr 2021

    This tisane is amazing iced. I use 2 tsp instead of 1 when steeping then cut it with cool water and shake it with ice, saving any extra in the fridge. Really good in summer time. Cutting it with water and serving it over ice takes the edge off the tartness and I drink this without any added sugar. Also the ingredients in this tea are fabulous and the color is very pretty.

    Love it hot and cold.

    Posted by Ashley Talamini on 21st Mar 2021

    This was one of the first tea's me and my husband ordered from here. We were looking into trying loose leaf tea and came across Arbor so we ordered some sample boxes and 4 sample size bags. This was the first tea I tried out of this order. I made it twice, the first time was an 8 oz cup hot. The second time I made it in the teapot we ordered that held 32 oz. I drank half hot and stuck the Rest In A Bottle in the refrigerator to cool. To see how it tasted. And I have to say it tastes good hot and cold I will definitely be ordering more.

    Flavor Party!

    Posted by Kseniya Husak on 9th Nov 2020

    This tea is like summer in a cup. It is robust, fragrant, with a tinge of sourness. When you open it, you see whole dried berries (which I eat after brewing because I can't help it) and are greeted with a complex aroma. I haven't tried this sweetened, but I'm sure that would be delicious, especially if iced. I did cold-brew this in the summer and kept it in the fridge for a refreshing treat. I also added other teas (looking at you, nettle), which paired quite nicely. This tea gets five starts because it's both delicious and serves as some series aroma-therapy!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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!

    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!"

    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!
