|"If you are a fan of tart, lemony teas then this is a fabulous option"|
Ambrosia Herb, a company that focusses on high quality herbal blends, has a wide range of fruity herbal teas. I’ve tried a few of these tea, including Berry Burst. I was unable to find Berry Burst on the AmbrosiaHerb website so I couldn’t find any information on this tea. I do know all of AmbrosiaHerb’s teas are certified organic and fair-trade though. When looking at the leaves, I could see what I thought to be dried lemon peel, blueberries, and some sort of purple flower I’m guessing to be dried myosotis flowers. Myosotis flowers have a floral taste and aroma and are said to have a walnut aftertaste. Myosotis flower tea is also high in Vitamin C and is said to boost digestion.
I steeped 1 teaspoon in one cup of water for 4 minutes. The water turned a lovely deep, coral pink and smelled like citrus and berries. This tea has a sweet, tart flavor. In the first sip you immediately taste the lemon peel. I would say this tea has more of a lemon burst then a berry burst. As I continued drinking I could taste more of the blueberries and myosotis flower. Though I detected no finishing taste of walnuts, I could detect a floral note from the flowers.
This tea is well balanced. I am picky with fruity teas since they can be overwhelming and often contain fake flavoring. This is a very natural herbal blend. It’s sweet and needs no additives. If you are a fan of tart, lemony teas then this is a fabulous option. If you love the combination of lemon and blueberries then this is the tea for you. Since it’s an herbal blend it is also low in caffeine and makes for a great evening treat. Due to the lively, tart flavor, I also find it to be a good spring and summer tea.
