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.

Picture of Watermelon Lime Zinger

This is probably my favorite Celestial Seasonings tea to make as an iced tea. We had a bout of hot weather for a few days and I whipped up some iced tea with this Watermelon Lime Zinger and it was so refreshing and delicious. It does a great job of cooling me down and it's a delicious flavor combination. I never feel t...

I'll be honest, I wasn't expecting this to be so good. In my area, Mother Nature seems to be going through her "change" and we've been getting some wild hot and cold flashes. I'll go outside in a long sleeve shirt and border on sweating one day, then go outside in thermal pants, leg warmers, a down vest, two layers, an...

Picture of Mandarin Orange Spice® Herb Tea

Celestial Seasonings has made a mint off selling assorted fruit flavors added to the same basic "Zinger" foundation (hibiscus, rose hips, hawthorn, blackberry leaves, orange peel). This tea has been around a couple of generations, probably preceding the Zingers, and doesn't bear that name, so maybe they're inspired by...

Picture of I Love Lemon® & C Herbal Tea

I don't love lemon. Regardless, if you do, this seems to be as reasonable of a presentation of the natural flavor as you'll find in a hot beverage, short of cooking lemonade. Perusing the ingredients, this should be expected with three different plant sources of the lemon ester: lemongrass, lemon verbena and lemon (...

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...
