Herbalist’s Note

Schisandra berries are very aromatic, pungent and complex with a range of polyphenols. The fruit skin has rare citrus, spice and multi-floral aromatics while the pulp has a cranberry and wild cider apple taste. The seeds are extremely bitter, pungent and full of astringent antioxidant and detoxifying substances. Each brew targets the right temperature and time enough for seed contact to express the refreshing polyphenolic and lignan effect without overpowering the amazing fruity and floral flavors.
