Here at METZ we’re all about partnerships. In this case, we’re linking the pride of New Zealand, the Kiwi fruit, with North America’s sweetest export, the wild strawberry. Together, this tag-team of decadent character weaves a spectacular web of tart sweet goodness that works well as a hot or iced tea. With Strawberry Kiwi it’s always summer somewhere.
Building on his initial brainwave, we've set about creating what we believe to be the ultimate in Strawberry Kiwi sipping - METZ Strawberry Kiwi Herb and Fruit tea.
Dripping with lush berry notes and underlying tones of kiwi-fruit, not only is this blend outrageously delicious, it's also loaded with antioxidants thanks to the addition of apple, hibiscus and rosehip pieces. Think of it as something like a summer's garden, distilled down to its most drinkable parts. Sublime.
Cup flavour:Full summer strawberry with kiwi
Brewing tips:Water temperature 100ºC for 5-10 min.
Hot Brewing Method:Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teabag for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep to 2-10 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea)
Iced Tea Brewing Method: Place 1 tea bag into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving over the herbal tea. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes, longer steeping time results in stronger tea. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted.
