This refreshing blend brews to a bright cherry red color with a sweet, tart taste. Comprised of hibiscus flowers, mango (mangoes and sugar), papaya (papayas and sugar), organic lemongrass, safflower, mallow blossoms and acai and pomegranate flavors, this tea is fabulous both hot and iced.

||Packs a Punch!
|So enjoyed by my tea room patrons, that this blend is a rival for the TOP requested spot! From the first pretty pink pour into the teacup, to the fun fruity flavor, it's a delight! Served on ice, it's even better!|

||Awesome fruit tea!
|Got a sample of this with my last order and can't wait to order more. This tea is packed with flavour, but not the kind that you get out of your grocery store teabags that ooze red colouring. Complex taste, but nonetheless refreshing and definitely a big step ahead of other such teas. A winner!|
|My mom (not an avid hot tea drinker) and I (very much an avid tea drinker) LOVE this tea! It's tastes great both hot and chilled! Very flavorful, doesn't require anything added to it to enjoy it! It also smells wonderful!|

||one of the best fruit teas
|A lovely dark red which is full of flavor of the red fruits with a nice extra taste of mango. I let mine steep for 5-10 minutes for greatest flavor.|

||Love this! Makes the best Iced Tea
|This is one of the most fruity and full bodied fruit teas I have tasted. Its great hot or iced... or made into lemonade! Unsweetened it reminds me of kool aid... but slightly more adult. Your guilt free iced beverage!|
||So Amazing...Best fruit herbal tea I have ever had.
|I got this on a whim because it was on sale. I tried a hot steep of this and I have to say I was BLOWN AWAY. This is very sweet and fruity, almost jam-like, and makes the most beautiful shade of tea ever. Really, I have had DavidsTea, adagio, and many other mainstream herbal teas and they have not come close to this quality. I am about to buy a pound or two because I know I will drink this throughout the summer as an iced drink.|
