I had the opportunity to try a tea from each of the three product lines, and I loved all of them! The Crispy Apple and Mango Oolong were sweeter, of course, and had a fresh fruity taste. But I was surprised to find that I was a fan of the Pure Green tea, too. It was very mild and light, not heavy like I imagined it would be. And it was much more refreshing on a hot summer day than my usual can of soda. And drinking green tea can be good for you! It contains powerful antioxidants that have numerous health benefits. Here’s a delicious summer recipe using TEAS’ TEA Pure Green tea:
GREEN TEA SUMMER PUNCH
Cook Time: 3 hours
Makes: 3 quarts / 12 servings
• 2 quarts TEAS’ TEA Pure Green
• 4 cinnamon sticks
• 8 whole cloves, plus more for garnish
• 4 peeled slices fresh ginger (about 1 inch by 2 inches each)
• 1 apple
• 1 orange
• 1 quart apple juice
1. Combine the tea, cloves, two pieces of ginger and two cinnamon sticks in a large pitcher.
2. Let steep at room temperature for about two hours. Refrigerate for up to an hour.
3. Wash the orange and slice it into thin pieces.
4. Wash, core and slice the apple. Stud the slices with cloves.
5. Remove the cloves, cinnamon and ginger from the tea.
6. Mix the tea, juice and remaining cinnamon sticks and ginger in the pitcher.
7. Serve chilled and enjoy!
