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 cherries and bananas combined with the natural flavors and tartness of the other dried fruits create a summertime cooler or a wintertime summer reminder.
This tea despite the tart nature has the softness and exotic flavor of cherries and bananas. To enhance the flavor try adding a bit of sugar. The sugar combines with the natural flavors and intensifies the flavor. Cherries and bananas complement one another in a blend perfectly. The cherry adds a tart and sassy character whilst the banana gives the blend depth and exotic flavor. The best sour cherries come from the Great Lakes region of the USA and Canada, whereas the best and most flavorful bananas are the tiny ones (about 5 inches long) that are grown in the tropics in countries such as Thailand.
For a summer time drink Cherrybana iced is hard to beat. It is refreshing and thirst quenching and not overly sweet. For formal times garnish the glass with a sweet maraschino cherry 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 Casablanca 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!
