A wonderfully refreshing fruity tea that tastes good hot, cold, or indeed frozen!
Herb and fruit teas are full of natural fruits which are very tasty and refreshing; there are significant amounts of Vitamin C and other essential nutrients in these dried fruits and they are caffeine-free so all we had to do was make a blend that was appealing to childrens taste buds as well as adults.
A few tips:
- Do not sugar these teas excessively; there are natural sugars in the fruits, which sweeten the brew when re-hydrated.
- Make ice lollies from the tea for your children to enjoy outside with their friends.
- Let them pour their own drinks (outside of course! they have to learn sometime) - the low cost of this tea (despite its wonderful taste) makes a learning curve relatively inexpensive.
- In the evening after dinner they too can enjoy a warm beverage and you can enjoy a relatively peaceful moment as a family.
Place 1 heaped, to 2 teaspoons of fruit tea per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into the teapot. To make a more intense infusion, add a little more tea. Pour boiling water into the pot and let steep for 5-7 minutes. Pour into your cup and add sugar to taste.
Do not add milk - the milk will curdle due to the ingredients in this blend.
Try brewing the mix for a second time and perhaps add a little mint or ginger, slightly more sophisticated for the adults.
-Do not pour hot liquid directly into a glass jug.
Make as for hot, but add extra tea - a rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the amount of tea used per cup. When the tea has cooled a little pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.
Alternatively, you can cold brew the tea by placing the tea in a jug and adding cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
To make 1 litre of iced tea: Put 12-15 teaspoons of tea into a heat resistant jug. Pour 1 and a quarter cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5-7 minutes or longer. Quarter fill a serving jug with cold water. Pour the tea into the jug while straining the ingredients. Add ice and top-up with cold water, or pour over ice into a tall glass. Garnish and sweeten to taste.
Gorgeous flavour tea, I only need 1 tea spoon per cup because the flavour is so strong. Good price as well

Delightful fruity tea
I do like fruits so would definitely recommend this tea to anybody who enjoys tea and fruits as an interesting and tasty hot winter drink or cooled summer options. I sometimes add a slice of orange or lemon depends on the mood. Additionally small fruits pieces can be rather nice to eat after they brewed well.
