Apricot Ginger Iced Tea with Honey and Cinnamon

I love experimenting with tea. We had some apricot tea in the house, so I decided to make some apricot-flavored iced tea. Mildly sweet, this tea truly quenched my thirst.

What You’ll Need

  • 4 cups water
  • 4 bags apricot tea (orange tea would taste good here too)
  • 1 nub fresh ginger cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • the juice from half a lemon
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • ice cubes
  • 1 heat-resistant bowl (I used a metal bowl. Just don’t use a glass bowl, which will crack with hot water).
  • 1 small cookie sheet (You only need this if you are using fresh raspberries).
  • Directions
    1) Boil 4 cups of water in a kettle with ginger and cinnamon.
    2) Put tea bags in heat-resistant bowl, and pour in hot water with ginger and cinnamon. (You might need to fish ginger and cinnamon out of kettle).
    3) Stir in honey and lemon juice.
    4) Steep tea for 15 minutes.
    5) Fish out tea bags, ginger and cinnamon.
    6) Put tea in the refrigerator for 45 minutes, so it cools down a bit. (When I first made iced tea, I made the mistake of not cooling down the tea. When I added the ice, the ice melted and diluted the tea).
    7) Meanwhile, if using fresh raspberries, spread raspberries on a cookie sheet (so that they aren’t touching each other), and put them into the freezer. Freeze for 45 minutes.
    8) Once raspberries are frozen, put into glasses and fill glasses with tea. Add ice to chill tea even more.

    Yield: 4 Servings

    Enjoy!
