Ingredients: South Indian Black Tea, All Natural Flavor, Safflower Petals
Your Prickly Pear Black Tea is a fine tribute to the prickly pear cactus, which is indigenous to New Mexico, my home. The flavour of the fruit of this succulent is captured beautifully and infused throughout the cup. Heightened with a touch of lemon and a bit of sugar, I find all the notes of this drink appear. If one is looking for a totally unique and genuine tea I fully recommend this. You can't go wrong.
I loved the prickly pear. I had one cup of it by itself and one cup with sweetener. For my last cup I didnt have enough left for it to be strong enough but I added some ruby red apple with it and it was yummy that way too.
I love Prickly Pear Black's distinctive flavor on its own. But I've recently started blending it with Simple Peach Black for cold brewed iced tea. After a while, the Peach was too fruity. Blending in Prickly Pear created an iced tea for grownups.
