Recipe: Blackberry iced tea with cinnamon and ginger

This blackberry iced tea is made with cinnamon and ginger, and is caffeine-free.

Herbal tea isn''t made from tea leaves. Instead, herbs, flowers or spices are steeped in water. Most herbal teas are caffeine-free.


Directions

In a large saucepan, heat water to just before boiling. Add tea bags, 2 of the cinnamon sticks and ginger. Remove from heat, cover and let steep for about 15 minutes.

Pass the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, placed over a pitcher. Add the juice and sweetener to taste. Refrigerate until very cold.

To serve, fill 6 tall, chilled glasses with crushed ice. Pour the tea over the top of the ice and garnish with cinnamon sticks. Serve immediately.

  • 12 blackberry herbal tea bags
