Red Berry Fruit Tisane is one of our most popular Fruit Teas. Visually striking even before brewing, this infusion’s outstanding qualities are guaranteed to transcend upon the first sip.
Expect a mesmerising aroma with a rich, fruity, indulgent taste. Boasting ingredients such as hibiscus, apple pieces, citrus peel and, of course, its namesake, Red Berry Fruit Tisane is a delight from start to finish.
But that’s not all. This beverage is also caffeine-free, making it an excellent choice for those looking to cut down their intake. Although not as health beneficial as Black or Green Tea, it’s nevertheless a viable alternative to sugary soft drinks. We pack it fresh to order.
The Story of Fruit Tea
Contrary to popular belief, Fruit Teas are far from a new phenomenon. They date back several millennia despite only gaining prominence in the last couple of centuries. For the most, however, their rise to fame is a quintessentially American story.
In 1773, as colonists in America grew increasingly frustrated by extortionate Tea taxes, a group of Bostonians decided they’d make a stand. The aim was to send a resonating message to the British monarchy that the American people wanted their rights and freedoms respected.
As such, the group dressed up as Native Americans and dumped 342 chests of Tea into the Boston harbour. Ultimately, this act of protest would become one of the sparks that led to the American Revolution two years later, famously known The Boston Tea Party
While the war raged on, the soon-to-be independent Americans searched for an alternative to Tea. They eventually settled on brewing local ingredients such as fruits and herbs, thus giving rise to Fruit and Herbal Tea, respectively.
Today, these beverages remain an important, if somewhat understated, part of American culture. However, they have since spread elsewhere, including right here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. And you can be a part of the Fruit Tea revolution, too, with Red Berry Fruit Tisane.

Benefits of Red Berry Fruit Tisane
One of the main reasons we drink Tea is to feel relaxed. But did you know there is science to support this? One recent study noted that chronic stress disrupts sleep and blood sugar levels. This then leads to increased hunger and combating eating.
Eventually, side effects like these escalate, leading to further disrupted sleep, even higher levels of stress and even more disrupted blood sugars. In time, this doesn’t just cause unhealthy levels of body fat but also increases the risk of type-2 diabetes.
Stopping stress at the source is the potential answer. And what could possibly be more relaxing than a nice, hot cup of Red Berry Fruit Tisane?
