A deliciously refreshing beverage that's packed with health benefits
- 8 tea bags black, green, or herbal tea
- 4 cups cold water
- Fresh fruit - cut into small pieces (optional - any combination of strawberries, orange, peach, raspberries, nectarine)
- fresh herbs and fresh ginger slices optional
Tie tea bags together to make it easier to remove them from pitcher.
Fill pitcher or jar with cold water and place tea bags inside.
Place pitcher on the counter for about 4 hours until tea is fairly dark in color. Or, place the pitcher with tea bags in the refrigerator for 6-12 hours to brew.
To serve, place several pieces of fruit and herbs if desired in the bottom of each glass. Using a muddler, or a wooden spoon, mash the fruit to release the juice.
Fill the glass with ice and pour the tea over.
Add ice to each glass, and brewed tea.
Store brewed tea in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
