My oh my! It has been some time since I found a fruit tea that fancied my taste buds like the Passion Tango tea from Teavana. While this looseleaf tea does have some artificial flavorings, it is still absolutely delicious. This herbal tea is made up of hibiscus flowers, apple chunks, cinnamon, lemongrass, candied papaya, rose hips, blackberry leaves, candied mango and rose petals.
Recommended steep time is 5 to 6 minutes and delivers a bright tangy flavor with a nice floral finish. I have tried this both hot and cold. I prefer it hot but it does make a great sun tea.
This is a great tea for beginners because even if you over steep it does not go too bitter, just gets a little tart. I did not use any additional sugars as the tea is already sweet enough.
I rate this herbal tea a 5 out of 5 stars.

I picked this delicious tea up from a cute little health foods store in Mountain Home, Arkansas. I had never heard of this flavor and it sounded delicious - the box description reads, "Jammy notes of strawberry& black cherry color green rooibos & green tea." My first brew I decided to make an iced tea with it since I was working out in the garden.
The tea itself is rich and fruity with great earthy undertones from the hibiscus and chamomile. The rooibos tea adds depth to the flavor which make the Organic Bramblewine tea from Tazo a new favorite tea.
Ingredients include organic hibiscus, organic green rooibos, organic apple, organic chamomile, organic lemon verbena, organic green tea, organic licorice root, and organic orange peel.
I rate this Organic Bramblewine tea by Tazo a 5 out of 5 stars.

Oh my sweetness, this Raspberry Patch fruit tea by Adagio Teas is so good! I've been sipping on this tangy brew for a few months now and down to my last two cups. This tea has an incredible aroma and is beautiful both brewed up and pink or loose in the palm of my hand. With huge chunks of dried apples, berries, rose hips and hibiscus flower - this tea is breathtakingly yummy!
Recommended to steep at 212 degrees for 5-10 minutes! The longer the sweeter/tangier! Some might find this tea to be a bit on the bitter side without a touch of sugar or honey. I like mine just the way it is, but you may want to sprinkle a little sweetener in there for good measure.
Did you know that raspberries contain high levels of phenolic flavonoid phytochemicals such as anthocyanins, ellagic acid (tannin), quercetin, gallic acid, cyanidins, pelargonidins, catechins, kaempferol and salicylic acid? Scientific studies show that these antioxidant compounds in these berries have potential health benefits against cancer, aging, inflammation, and neuro-degenerative diseases!
I rate this yummy loose leaf fruit tea a 4 out of 5 stars.
