Boysenberry Black Tea
Boysenberry Black Tea is sure to be a favorite tea among many of our berry-loving friends. It has the juicy Boysenberry flavor many of us enjoy in Boysenberry Preserves, which is a standard in many pantries. The other reason is that it just tastes great. We have many fruit-based and fruit flavored black, green, white, and herbal teas. Boysenberry is sure to take its place along side them.
If you’re not familiar with the Boysenberry, here are a couple bits of its history. Rudolph Boysen found a berry vine growing on another farmer’s farm which was a cross between the Dewberry and the Loganberry, which is a raspberry/blackberry hybrid itself. The result is a large, purple/red berry. After he lost interest in commercially marketing the berry, Walter Knott was enlisted by the USDA to find this berry, which he did. He redeveloped it to a commercial crop, and the rest is history. Surprising, the largest producer and exporter of Boysenberries is new Zealand.
We’re fortunate that our blender has been able to capture the full, fruity goodness of the Boysenberry in this wonderful black tea. It has hints of sweetness, which many of our fruity teas do, without any added sugars.
If you are a fan of berry-flavored teas, then you must try our Boysenberry Black Tea and see if it earns a place on your tea shelf. It has on ours.
We have many fruit-based herbal teas as well as fruity black and green teas.
