Enjoy Delicious Blackberry Tea in Many Variations

blackberry tea

Fresh blackberries have a pleasantly crisp taste and are filled with wellness-promoting antioxidants and vitamins A and C. When used to make hot tea or iced tea, they create a delightful brew that delivers exceptional flavor and health benefits.

You'll often find blackberries blended with traditional teas brewed  – black, oolong, green or white – that come from leaves of the Camellia sinensus tree.

Yet, consumed on its own, this fruit tea presents a delicate, satisfying flavor that can be enjoyed either hot or over ice.

The deep-purple berries, with the botanical name of Rubus Fruticosus, are picked from thick bramble bushes that are grown in many parts of the world. You can grow your own berry brambles from seed or buy young blackberry bushes from reputable plant nurseries.

Making Your Tea

There are many ways to prepare and enjoy this refreshing, delicious tea.

  • The most traditional way is to pick blackberry leaves and dry them in the sun. Then, use a mortar and pestle to crumble 2 teaspoons of leaves per cup of boiling water. Steep for 5-10 minutes, and serve.

  • Mash fresh berries and put them through a sieve. Warm the liquefied berries and let them sit for a few hours. Then, pour the mixture into boiling water to make a fresh cup of tea. The amount of mixture you use depends on your taste preference.

  • Brew your favorite black, green, oolong, white or herbal tea and add store-bought blackberry syrup to make a sweet flavorful brew.

  • This fruit tea also can be found in loose or bagged form with flavor enhancements including vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, currants, mint and jasmine.

As an added treat, complement your blackberry tea with some sweetened fresh berries, fruit pies, tarts or scones.
