GOOD TASTE: Hawaiian Fruit Tea

 
I picked up this Hawaiian Fruit Tea at the Farmer's Market today. There's actually no tea leaves in it. It's all fruit; Pineapple, Apricot, Peach, Papaya, Cranberry, Hibiscus with Passion Fruit, Mango and Peach. 

According to the tea vendor, Hibiscus has been traditionally used for balancing blood pressure. The tea is also supposed to help hot flashes. 


To brew, you use 1 teaspoon of the tea to 8 ounces of boiling water. I decided to mix up a pitcher. The bag says steep time is 7-15 minutes but the tea lady told me to steep it for 45 minutes. 
Steeping the tea... and waiting. 

Once the tea is ready, discard the fruit using a strainer. Then refrigerate and once chilled, pour over a glass of ice. 

It tastes like a natural, non-sugary Hawaiian Punch. Delicious!

Plenty of tea left over for several pitchers which should last me through this summer heatwave.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
