Enjoy Delicious Blackberry Tea in Many Variations
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.
