How To Make Fruit Tea
Mother’s Day is a time every year dedicated to our mothers. Yes, it is a made up holiday, but I know my mom loves it. One of her favorite recipes is a drink from a local restaurant called Fruit Tea. I have created a copy cat version of that recipe. This fruit tea is delicious for any occasion and for any meal of the day. The citrus powerhouses in this tea brings out the flavor of the tea in such a unique way. If you don’t like certain fruit that is in this recipe, the recipe will work with most other fruits. Be adventurous and create new flavor combinations. If you have recipe you would like to see me make, let me know in the comments below.
