Tea Infusions are a great way to make special teas at home that can be difficult to find in your area and costly at coffee and tea houses. You also get the greatest benefits from using the purest and natural ingredients.
My favorite tea is an orange tea put out by Flavia. I drink cups of it throughout the day but can only get this at work. I miss it when I'm home. Instead, I started using fresh ingredients to make my own blend of tea infusions.
My 2 favorite concoctions:
- Orange Tea Infusion - a slice of orange with hot water poured over it. Leave the orange in the cup while you drink it. Usually, you can get 3 cups out of it. The water turns a slight blushed orange. After the third cup, I find the water is clear.
- Kiwi and lime - Another 2 of my favorite things in life. Yet to be tried in an infusion. Will start with a slice of each. What attracted me to kiwi is it helps fight off depression. If its cloudy for days on end or if my physical body feels depleted, I get very down and I don't like it. After learning this little tidbit, I started adding kiwi to my smoothies and now tea infusions to help keep me balanced during those times.
Another thing I'll be creating soon, blending 3 of my favorite ingredients to create Chocolate Cheese Covered Jalapeno Peppers! Oh, my! What heaven!
