Ruby Fruit Super Tea Recipe

Time for Tea ~ A nourishing favourite: Ruby Fruit Super Tea Recipe for you!

I wrote this post a while back and this remains one of my most favourite herbal tea blends. No matter what the weather ~ try this one — hot or cold. It’s SO good. It also makes a super gift for a friend who needs a little ‘pick me up’. I am making it today and going to serve it over citrus infused ice cubes!

Ok.. onward with my post from springtime.. I just wanted to ensure that this ‘super’ tea is on your list to try ALL year long — and enjoy every sip!

It’s in ‘between’ at the moment.. Winter and Spring are having a tug-of-war, one day  teasing us with a sunny day filled with birds singing and a hint of warmer days on the horizon, and the next day .. today.. back to brrr… and freezing temps. There’s another round of colds + flu everywhere I look.  Also, everyone is really really tired… and weary.. from the Winter from hell.

What to do? Well, while a nourishing herbal tea won’t make Spring arrive faster, it’s warming and will bring a smile to your face. If you are already enjoying warmer weather or perhaps living in a hot climate, this tea is delicious served piping hot or over ice! It’s a long time favourite of mine and it’s beautiful too!

Ruby Fruit Super Tea It’s EASY to make:

1 part Hibiscus flowers
1 part Rose Hips
1 part Oats (milky oat tops are best!)
1/2 part Orange peel (dried)

Typically, I combine these ingredients together in a small batch and store in a glass ‘canning’ jar  (in a dark cupboard) so that it’s SUPER easy to make this tea at any time! Try using 1 cup for 1 part and store in a glass jar.  Use organic sources whenever possible ~ better for YOU!
