So, a ton of people have over the past few weeks msgd me requesting more how-to step by step tutorials. I added the earlier Ginger Walnut Cinnamon Tea recipe a couple days ago but more and more people are asking for, well, more.
Now to satisfy all those requests and a few others I get quite often regarding the ‘color of tea’ and how to infuse fruity flavors into tea, and even how to make nice tasting tea without using ceramic pots and so forth, I went ahead and merged all of those here.
Many ask, “how can we give a really vibrant color to our tea, and make it taste fruity without using food coloring or any unnatural additives”. Simple, use natural ingredients. When you don’t have a ceramic teapot, use a regular pot and an infuser, and if you don’t have a proper infuser, use one from inside a coffee strainer ;) Just adapt and experiment with what you do have!
Here’s how I made a Spicy Red Hot Plum Tea! (you read that right)
First, you’re going to need some ingredients:
Instructions on how to make this amazing fiery red tea:
Chop the apple and plum into the pot of water
Season lightly with salt and pepper and stir once or twice
At this point the water will remain transparent
Bring up to light boil on high flame, at this point the plum slices will have begun to expand, the skin may break and parts of the plum might even crumble, that’s fine and normal.
Drop flame to low and let it boil slowly till the water’s color changes to pinkish/red (shouldn’t let it get too dark) - you can at this point stir it a bit and squeeze the plum slices on the inner side of the pot to get those juices flowing out faster so as to make sure it’s flavor packed
Check it out!
Now add your tea into an infuser, rinse with cold water very lightly, turn OFF your heat and then place the infuser into the middle of your pot.
Let it sit there for 3-4minutes or so.
Strain into glass and if you like, add sugar to taste (but really there’s no need, tastes amazing as is, your call though)
Once you’ve had a few cups of this red hot spicy plum tea, snap back to reality and clean up after yourself :P
That’s right, here’s a quick Tea Blend (recipe) for you tea lovers out there, one of my own little homemadeee blends for this time of year. You can make this in your kitchen, you don’t need to purchase any fancy blends or anything, over the shelf ingredients you probably already have at hand.
As the weather changes, as it gets colder and as more of us fall victims to the hellish flu/cold (guilty as charged), we need natural healing remedies and what better remedy than some delicious, nutty, earthy tea?
This one is super easy to make, so here goes.
