An Orchard in Your Teapot, Pt. II – Herbals Made with Fruits

Sometimes that orchard in your teapot isn’t tea, but a fruity infusion. Unlike the teas listed in Part I, these infusions are caffeine-free along with being naturally flavorful and often naturally sweet. Some are also quite healthful.

One of the frustrations when researching this was the number of companies that call their infusions by the term “tea.” I had to read the ingredients list carefully. If you, the consumer, are looking for an herbal, floral, or fruit infusion to avoid the caffeine in tea, this can be quite a dilemma. I did my best to determine that the infusions shown here are tea-free, and thus caffeine free.

Some Lemony Tasting Infusions:

Sunshine Lemon Rooibos

Always a chilled favorite, refreshing and flavorful, these infusions give you a lemony taste but some without the lemon.

Some Orange Infusions:

Lemons aren’t the only citrus fruits who get in on the infusion action. Oranges, both regular and Mandarin, join in the fun and flavor.

Some Berry Infusions:

Full of natural sweetness and healthy elements, berries find their way into lots of things, including jams, preserves, pies, tarts, and (of course) infusions.

Other fruits used are apples, peaches, plums, mangos, passion fruit, cherries, bananas, raisins, and black currants. Steep up a potful to enjoy hot or to chill overnight and serve to your guests the next day. Either way, you will have a great tasting beverage. Enjoy!

Two down and one to go! Stop back tomorrow for the the third and final part of A.C.’s series on fruity teas! In the meantime, head on over and check out her blog, Tea Time with A.C. Cargill!
