iced hibiscus berry

This tea is certified organic and produced to fair labor standards.

ICED HIBISCUS BERRY is our only iced tisane on offer—because our masterful standards for tea apply to all our selections, sourcing herbs, fruits, and spices that are both environmentally responsible and strong representations of the species they represent is a challenge. In this tea-free blend, that challenge has been met: modeled after our CURRANT tisane blend, ICED HIBISCUS BERRY is a direct-sourced blend of all-organic tart hibiscus flower, earthy rooibos shrub, juicy zante currants, and herbaceous lemongrass. At our production facility in Kansas City we hand-blend the tisane in small batches for peak freshness and quality control.

A robust foundation of hibiscus flower leads the blend, providing ample sweetness and depth of color. The deep purple-red liquor is rounded out by nutty, long-cut rooibos from South Africa's Cederberg mountains, and layered with a bright citrus element in Thailand lemongrass. Juicy-sweet black currants from an organic farming cooperative in Fresno, California finish this tisane and amplify the purple fruit compote motif that drives ICED HIBISCUS BERRY. Combined with an ambrosial aroma of simmering berries, the blend achieves a saccharine quality with no added sugar—only those naturally present in the fruits and flowers we select season-to-season according to our strict sourcing standards. 

Like all our iced teas, ICED HIBISCUS BERRY is crafted with signature beverage service in mind. Blended for striking visual clarity, lingering fruity aroma, and (most vitally) exceptional flavor, it's a barista's go-to for customers seeking a caffeine-free summertime refreshment reminiscent of unsweetened fruit juice and tropical flowers. It's an idealized mixer, too—serve with chilled nut mylk for an elevated take on the classic berries and cream, or on rocks with sparkling water and elegantly garnished with rosemary sprig.
