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.

Tasting Notes
Refreshingly tart and fruity with a uniquely quenching balance of five flavors: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent.

Schizandra berries are known as “the fruit of five flavors” in China. It is said to have the five primary elements of sweet, sour, salty, bitter and spicy/pungent. The berries can be infused like a tea and provide a very tart and tasty caffeine-free infusion. The aroma and flavor of Schizandra has distinct notes of cranberry, rose, geranium flowers and citrus. An infusion of Schizandra is blushing pink with a soft body and long lingering fragrance. This rare vine fruit also goes well with a bit of honey.
