About Berry Basket

Tea Type : Black Tea

Tea Forté’s Berry Basket is an exceptional black tea blend featuring strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blue cornflower petals. Its robust, fruity flavor is perfectly enjoyed either hot or iced, and adding just a hint of sugar or honey brings out the brightness of the berries. Sun-ripened and juicy, they stand at the forefront of this refreshing summer beverage.

Black tea is the most popular variety of tea in the Western hemisphere, made through a production process involving the harvesting, rolling, oxidation and firing or drying of leaves from the flowering camellia sinensis shrub, which is famed for giving us black, green, white, and oolong tea. Sun-ripened strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are carefully dried and combined with black tea leaves in this spectacular blend, which delivers a subtle boost of energy and overall sense of renewal. An occasional hint of blue cornflower petal peeks out from the dark berry blend, offering a pop of color and a subtle floral undertone.

Berry Basket may be accompanied by milk or sugar to taste, and can also be made into an invigorating iced tea by doubling the recommended steep time and pouring over ice. Tea purists may also enjoy it simply steeped in water without any additions, allowing the fruit-forward flavors to stand on their own.

Steeping instructions

1. Heat water to 208˚F.
2. Place tea in cup and pour water over the leaves.
3. Steep for 3-5 minutes.
4. Enjoy!

For loose leaf iced teas, use 2 tsp per 8oz glass.

    Excellent quality tea

    I love black teas and this one didnt disappoint. You can taste the "berry" without it being too strong and overpowering the flavor of the tea leaves themselves. Excellent, as is what I've pleasantly come to expect from my beloved Tea Forte teas. I don't purchase my teas from anywhere else.

    Just in time for spring

    I tried a sample from a co worker and fell in love so I found the website and order. I love how the look of loose tea looks and smell.

    A berry good cup of tea

    I have to say I enjoy this tea quite a bit. It has a great berry flavor without being overwhelming or fake tasting. It's a bright cup of tea, the perfect blend for when you're looking for something extraordinary.

    Very nice aroma

    Usually, I'm not a fan of black tea but decided to give this one a try. The aroma is fruity and sweet which makes the black tea very enjoyable. Would buy again.
