What You Need:
How to make Dried Fruit Tea:
Start by dehydrating your fruit. I don’t have the exact measurements on the number of apple pieces and strawberries that I started with, but I 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.
Simply mix all the ingredients and store them in an airtight container until you are ready to make some tea. I store my loose teas in gallon-sized 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, but it would also make an excellent gift. Place it in a pretty little mason jar or another decorative jar and share it as a gift with friends.

To make tea, I use approximately 1/4 cup of the mixture to 1/2 gallon of water. Steep it for several minutes (using a large Tea Infuser) and pour over ice and enjoy a nice tall glass with your family.
