I made up a batch of this loose tea and it was a big, family hit. If you and your family love teas, be sure to try this one.

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....

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. I store my loose teas in gallon glass jars.

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 and pour over ice to enjoy.

Until next time, Julie

This sounds so good. I need to get some strawberries since they are in season right now. I can give this to the children without worry if caffiene and extra sugar.

This is my first Teavana tea – I love sweet berry flavors, so this was one I really wanted to try. I like my tea VERY sweet, so I put over a tablespoon of the rock sugar in the steeper, and it turned out DELICIOUS. Smooth going down, light on the palate definitely a good wind-down tea for the night.
