My Mum used to brew tea from berries that we grew in our back garden in Norris Green, Liverpool, when I was a toddler, and I remember loving how the blackberries and blueberries would stain our tongues and lips when we drank it, and we all pretended to be Vampires until the colour went away.
Intoxicating aroma with the flavor of wild blueberries. A pinch of sugar makes a stunning tea, iced or hot!
INFORMATION: Herb and fruit tea in some circles is considered a new type of tea. This particular tea was specially formulated to acknowledge the great taste and known health benefits of blueberries. In addition to the antioxidants in the blueberries, hibiscus brings the added benefits of Vitamin A and C to the blend. Blue Jay Blueberry will accommodate the tastes of people who want to experience a refreshing healthy new style drink without caffeine. It is excellent hot as a hot drink and simply dynamite as a cold drink. You will want to add a pinch of natural cane sugar as this accentuates the natural flavorings and brings out the subtle tastes of the dried berries. Blueberries are a rich source of antioxidants. This property plus the fact that they taste great make them very popular. You might be interested to know that it is not simply the human race that thinks blueberries taste great. You might ask, how can we be sure of this... well, not many years ago a friend of ours by the name of Jane was picking plump ripe juicy wild blueberries in the semi forested fields behind her house in Northern Ontario. Unbeknownst to her, a 400 pound black bear and her two cubs were doing the same thing on the other side of the thicket that separated the two parties. It seems that the bear's needs were greater than Jane's as when she became aware of the bears she beat a hasty retreat. PS. We sent Jane a pouch of Blue Jay Blueberry with a little note reminding her that this is indeed safe to drink. Bears notwithstanding.
