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. We include many blends in this category even if they contain hibiscus, because the overall character of these blends is still more fruity than floral.

Fruit tea containing the tea plant

Sometimes the term "fruit tea" is used to refer to black, green, or white teas flavored with fruit; RateTea classifies these teas under flavored teas; we consider "fruit teas" to be herbal teas whose primary aroma is that of fruit. For flavored teas combining fruit with the tea plant, see the categories fruit black tea, fruit green tea, and fruit white tea. A few fruit teas can also be found in with flavored oolongs; these teas are not broken into their own category because they are so uncommon.

Citrus Sunrise from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: ?????
Feb. 18th, 2019

Citrus Sunrise easily can be called Orange Tangerine Zinger, if it weren't for a similarly named blend they already have. That's because it starts out with the same common-denominator ingredients as the CS Zinger line (rose hips, orange peel, hibiscus, hawthorn, blackberry leaves), and just boosts the orange part with...

After running out of my favorite blueberry-flavored tea faster than expected, I got this in a moment of desperation, made easier to rationalize by a temporarily low sale price at Sprouts.

True Blueberry is one of the few herbal teas I've tried whose primary advertised flavor smells substantially stronger in the dry ...

Fairly typical example of the style. Organic hibiscus, rosehips, elderberry flowers, apple, and orange peels, plus some natural flavoring. Not outstanding but certainly pleasant. This has a strong strawberry note, which I guess comes from the flavoring.

A fine fruit tisane - organic and kosher, with a strong taste of raspberry that does not taste entirely natural (some natural flavoring is added.)

Strictly Strawberry from SerendipiTea

Style: Fruit (Herbal) Tea – Region: Blend
Jan. 20th, 2019

Very fruity and flavorful. Made from dried apple, hibiscus, rose hips, strawberry and natural strawberry flavoring. Thanks to my brother and his wife - this is the tea that turned me on to Serendipitea's flavorful, reasonably priced tisanes.
