It’s relaxing. It’s refreshing. It’s so dang easy, even a Food Coma victim can do it.
Citrus-infused flavored teas from the store can be hit or miss, especially when some of them taste like the floor cleaner our grandmothers use.
But now here comes something fabulous… hot or cold tea, infused with fresh, citrus ingredients that’ll slap you silly with the bold taste of Wonderful. Store-bought teas can’t compete. I promise.
- 1 black tea bag
- 1 fresh orange, halved
- 1 fresh lemon, halved
- 1 packet Stevia, or your favorite non-artificial sweetener
- Prepare black tea as usual
- Squeeze into cup the juice from 1/2 orange
- Squeeze into cup the juice from 1/2 lemon
- Add sweetener
preparation notes: The exact amount of citrus juice used is up to you. However, lemon juice should be about 1/2 the amount of orange juice used, as lemon can easily overpower the entire drink. Store the remaining lemon and orange halves in the fridge for future cups of tea.
This whole thing may seem like no big deal, but ohhh, the flavor is sensational. It delivers a calming & delicious experience. No doubt you will hear angelic harps in the background as you slurp your tea and are served tasty snack biscuits, carried to you on the backs of obedient unicorns.
The tea will produce a lovely orange color (none of that artificial crap they put in flavored teas) and bring you citrus bonus points that include cleansing/detox benefits, boosting of your immune system through Vitamin C, and regulation of blood pressure & cholesterol, thanks to the phytonutrients citrus contains.
Ooops! Did you walk away and forget about your cup of tea? No worries, my friend. Citrus Sweet Tea tastes equally luxurious when served cold. Try it that way, too, — wonderfully chilled for sipping in the sunshine on a bright & sunny day.
This tea will make you feel like a million bucks, whereby you can then cash yourself in and send those monies straight to me.
Wait…do you hear that? It’s the sound of unicorn hooves prancing your way. They’re carrying the snack biscuits with them. Better hurry up and make your tea.
