Fruit Tea

On the quest to make the perfect Fruit Tea for Hal, I finally created one where he said “this is it”… so i thought I would share! The spiced Chai tea bags, cinnamon and cloves gives it a wonderful flavor!

Ingredients

  • 8 Cups water
  • 1 cup of simple syrup (I put 1 Cup of sugar into a bowl and pour some of the boiling water into it until dissolves)
  • 8 cloves
  • 4 tea bags – I like to use a combination but always use some or all Black double-spice Chai Tea
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 8 fresh ginger slices (about 1/8 inch thick)
  • 2 Cups of a combination of Orange and Pineapple (I also like Trader Joe’s Dynamo Juice)

Instructions

  1. In a large stock pot add water, cloves, cinnamon stick and ginger.
  2. Bring water to a boil.
  3. Add a cup of the boiling water and pour over the sugar to make simple syrup.
  4. Remove from heat and add the tea bags
  5. Let steep for at least 15 minutes.
  6. Add the simple syrup and juice.
  7. Strain contents through a sieve and into a container.
  8. Chill.
