About this tea

The Schisandra Berry is native to northeastern China, Korea and parts of Siberia. It grows on vines and thrives in temperate forests. We work with growers who intersperse Schisandra Berry vines amongst the natural forestry in the hills of Jilin province, in a form of semi wild crafting which produces remarkable complex and nutritious fruits. Schisandra is called Wu Wei Zi in Chinese, which literally means "five-flavor berry," and references its uniquely complex flavor profile with sweet, sour, salty, bitter and spicy flavors found in different parts of the berry. We feature Schisandra Berries as an ingredient in quite a few herbal blends. These pure Schisandra Berries are wonderful as hot brewed herbal tea or brewed hot and then chilled for the ultimate iced refreshment. Schisandra has been cultivated for thousands of years and is celebrated as an adaptogen, promoting balance.

China

Schisandra is a flowering and creeping plant that resembles grape vines, and is native to Siberia, Northeastern China and the Korean Peninsula. In spring, the blossoms smell of jasmine and magnolia. The berry clusters ripen in September and are harvested and dried in October. Ji Lin, China and greater Manchuria, which borders the Korean Peninsula, is one of the largest traditional herbal medicine harvesting areas in Asia and is where most schisandra berries are cultivated on farms that resemble vineyards.
