    Ingredients:

    Crimson Berry loose leaf (2 tbsp. per 6-8 oz. of boiling water)

    Fresh or frozen blueberries (or any berry of your choosing)

    Lemon or lime slices

    crimson berry tea ice cubes, blueberries, and loose leafglass bowl of crimson berry tea ice cubes

    Instructions:

    1. Steep Crimson Berry tea for at least 10 minutes with boiling water. The longer you steep, the stronger your frozen infusion will be. Crimson Berry is an herbal tea, so it can be steeped for as long as you wish, without compromising the flavours of the ingredients. The fruity notes of the cranberries, blueberries, currants and elderberries will be more forward, along with the tartness of the hibiscus and twist of citrus from the lemongrass.
