About Fruit (Herbal) Tea
Fruit tea refers to herbal tea made mostly out of fruit or with an aroma primarily of fruit. The fragrance of fruit can come from dried fruit, fruit peel, or essential oils used to flavor other herbs.
Such teas are very diverse, and the border between fruit teas and other herbal teas can be a bit blurry. Certain herbs, such as lemon balm or lemongrass, having fruit-like aromas, are often blended into teas to impart a fruity aroma. Also, blossoms from fruit trees are often included, or less commonly, leaf or bark of fruiting plants. Hibiscus is also a frequent ingredient in these blends, as it imparts a rich red color and sour flavor that is somewhat reminiscent of fruit or berries.
