For hot tea, single serving:
- 1 chamomile tea bag
- 8 oz water
- ¼ cup dried Goji berries
- 1 tsp. peeled, sliced ginger
- 1 tsp. raw local honey**
- 1 lemon slice
For refreshing Iced Tea, 4 servings:
- 6 chamomile tea bags
- 4 cups water
- 1 cup dried goji berries
- 2 tbsp peeled sliced ginger
- 2 tbsp raw local honey**
- 1 sliced lemon
For both options, bring water to a boil in a pot. Once boiling, remove from heat and add tea bag (or bags if you are making iced tea), berries, ginger and honey and let steep for 15 minutes. If you prefer a less sweet tea, feel free to omit the honey, however we found that it helps with the zesty spice of the ginger.
For hot tea: once steeped, strain into your favorite mug and add the lemon slice. Let the warmth soothe your mind and soul 😊
For iced tea: you may have noticed there are a few additional tea bags here. This is due to the probability that this will be poured over ice, which will dilute the flavor. Once the tea is finished steeping, strain into a large pitcher or jar, and let chill until ready to drink. Pour over ice and add sliced lemons. Perfect for a hot summer day!
Note: straining out the fruits and ginger is completely optional, and leaving them in longer will only concentrate the flavors, especially for ginger.
**Raw, local honey is best to help ward off allergies as the bees pollinate from plants in your local area which boosts your allergy defense. However, for taste purposes, use any honey of your choice.
