Strawberry Apple Fruity Loose Tea
I made up a batch of this loose tea and it was a big hit for our entire family. If you and your family love teas, be sure to try this one. It's perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day.
I don't have exact measurements on the apple pieces and strawberries that I started with, but I used ended up with approximately 1 quart of dried small apple pieces and probably about the same of the dried strawberry pieces. I dehydrated both of these in my food dehydrator.
After they were finished dehydrating, I added the dried apple and strawberry pieces to 1/2 pound rose hips and also 1/2 pound hibiscus flowers. (You can get both at the Bulk Herb Store.) I store my loose teas in gallon glass jars so I can easily see which teas are stored inside and how much I have left before I need to make more and order more rose hips and hibiscus flowers.
Doesn't it look beautiful? Not only is it tasty and your family will love it, it would also make an excellent gift. Place it in a pretty little mason jar or another decorative jar and share as a gift with friends.
This is a delicious blend of natural and healthy ingredients. I use approximately 1/4 cup of the mixture to 1/2 gallon water. Steep it for several minutes (using a large Tea Infuser) and pour over ice and enjoy a nice tall glass with your family.
