Herbal teas, technically speaking, are not true teas as they are not a product of the Camellia sinensis plant. They are properly referred to as "tisanes" or infusions, crafted from dried herbs, flowers, leaves, roots, seeds and fruit. Like tea, herbal infusions have been consumed for centuries as healing tonics to lift the spirit and enhance well-being. Our Herbal blends are hand crafted with artisan care and a vast knowledge of how theantioxidant properties and therapeutic applications ofpure, fresh herbs, flowers, and botanicals, deliver delicious healthful infusions that can delight both mind and body.
Average Customer Rating
As a lot of other reviewers say, this tea is pretty excellent iced, but it's a bit sour and unpleasant as a hot drink.

The flavour of the tea is really medicinal and sour!! It does not taste like sweet plump cherries at all! I expected a nice light but sweet fruittea, but I was really disappointed. I see that other reviewers like it iced, it's possible that the tea might taste better iced. But I definately wouldn't recommend the tea. Unless you like sour tea?..

This is absolutely one of my favorite teas.
This is absolutely one of my favorite teas. I didn't like it at first, I made the mistake of adding too much honey and leaving it to steep for too long, making it taste more like cherry cough syrup than tea. But over the past year, I learned how to "properly" steep herbal tea, and I have to say it's absolutely delicious. I got a sample of this tea in an assortment pack, and have re-ordered it twice so far! :)

Not good at all and smells worse
This tea has a horrible smell and the taste is somewhat medicinal. I was very disappointed. I would not recommend anyone buy this tea. I would highly recommend the raspberry nectar instead.

I must try it iced!
Hot is good to O.K. but not one of my favorites. I read some reviews and two (2) of them said they loved it iced. I want to taste it iced which I will do soon as it is already getting hot here in Arizona.

The caffeine level in a cup of tea can vary by tea type, steeping practices and even the particular tea harvest. We use the following designations as guidelines for the caffeine levels of our teas:
Robust, high caffeine teas; 50-100mg
Lower caffeine teas with shorter steeping times; 30-50mg
Tea/herbal blends with less than 30mg
Decaf tea retains a tiny amount of caffeine
Herbal teas are 100% caffeine free
These steeping guidelines produce the best results for our palates. Use them as a guideline, but you may certainly experiment and find the best results for yours.
