Apple Pomegranate Tea
We call this one forbidden fruit because once you try it you will forbid others from sharing it with you. You will want to keep this secret all to yourself. Travel back to your childhood with the sweet smell of this fruity tea. This herb and fruit mix is reminiscent of the sweet and tangy fruit punch you used to drink as a kid (but without heaps of sugar). Pieces of apple, pomegranate and raspberries give this tea a unique fruit taste that is not overly sweet. With no caffeine, this is a great apple pomegranate tea for the afternoon. It will not give you the jitters associated with drinking too much coffee, but has a rich and full flavour that will give you the little kick you need to get you through the rest of the day. This tea is the perfect escape, and with the gentle aroma of rosehip you can literally stop and smell the roses.

How to Steep it
To make this tea hot, add 2 teaspoons of loose leaf tea for 12 oz. (350 ml) of water. Let it steep for 4-8 minutes at 100 degrees C (212 F). Once the tea is steeped, remove the infuser and enjoy!
This tea makes a superb iced tea! To enjoy it iced, add three teaspoons of loose leaf tea for every 12 oz. (350 ml) of water. Let it steep for 4-8 minutes using 100 degrees C (212 F) water. We like steeping this tea longer for full flavour extraction. Once steeping has completed, pour it over ice and enjoy.
Mix up your tea routine and try this herbal blend iced mixed with lemonade. If you want to cut back on sugar, try squirting a few drops of some fresh lemon juice into your tea (hot or iced). The lemon blends beautifully with this sweet mixture of herbs and fruits.
