Herb and fruit tea; in some circles is considered a new type of tea. We formulated this blend to accommodate tastes of people who wanted to experience a refreshing healthy new style drink without caffeine. What we got was a terrific "tea" that is unbelievably delicious and enjoyed Hot or Cold! This tea has a very exotic flavor profile. The delicious blend of apricot flavor combined with the natural flavors and tartness of the various dried fruits create a summertime cooler or a wintertime summer reminder.
This tea despite the tart nature has the softness and exotic flavor of sweet apricots. To enhance the flavor try adding a bit of sugar. The sugar combines with the natural flavors and intensifies the flavor. Apricots are well suited to the northern climes of North America. Apricot trees require a very short period of dormancy and their pink or white blossoms may appear during a warm spell in March or April. All apricots originated in Asia, but the common orchard type "Prunus armenicaca" has undergone centuries of selection, especially in Europe, where it arrived via Armenia - hence its name.
For a summertime drink Apricot Supreme iced is hard to beat. It is refreshing and thirst quenching and not overly sweet. For formal times garnish the glass with a slice of apricot or peach and a sprig of mint. For non-formal times pour it into your glass and enjoy it gulp after gulp! If you have small children use the Apricot Supreme tea to make popsicles - they taste great and contain very little sugar.
By virtue of the fact that these blends do not contain any tea and are a special blend of fruits and herbs, they are caffeine free! An additional benefit is that these "teas " contain Vitamin C. What could be better - a healthy drink that tastes GREAT!

Hot tea brewing method: Place 1.5 to 2 teaspoons of Apricot Supreme per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into the teapot.

Pour into your cup and add sugar to taste. **do not add milk - the milk will curdle due to the ingredients in this blend.
